Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide

Nov 11, 2013

Will taking Food grade Hydrogen Peroxide inhibit the effectiveness of HIV therapy? (I'm on Norvir, Truveda and Prezista)

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

While topical use of household hydrogen peroxide is generally safe, I do not recommend taking the "food grade" version.

I'm a doubter of benefits from the ingestion of hydrogen peroxide for any reason. Indeed, the US Food and Drug Administration issued a strong Safety Alert for the consumption of high-strength hydrogen peroxide.
