green tea
Jul 7, 2008

I heard that green tea stops hiv replication. Do you know anything about this?


Response from Mr. Vergel

Yes, but has only been shown in in-vitro studies ( in the lab), not in humans. Baylor College of Medicine in Houston has done some studies in cells using a chinese extract.

Here is a good article that Tim Horn wrote a while ago:
