Taking Mushroom Supplements
Sep 15, 2010

I starting Meds for the first time and my CD4 count is 340. I will be taking Atripla for my meds.. I want to know if I could take My Community host defense to help bring my cd4 count higher in the next three months to normal

My Community Capsules offer 17 powerful mushroom species for immune system health:* Royal Sun Blazei, Cordyceps, Enokitake, Amadou, Agarikon, Artist Conk, Reishi, Oregon Polypore, Maitake, Lion's Mane, Chaga, Shiitake, Mesima, Birch Polypore, Zhu Ling, Split Gill Polypore and Turkey Tail. Recently renamed, MyCommunity is the 17 species Host Defense formula originally created by Paul Stametsthe most comprehensive formula for Supporting Natural Immunity produced by Fungi Perfecti. Each capsule contains 525 mg of Certified Organic freeze-dried mushroom mycelium/fruitbodies.

Thanks Rubin

Response from Mr. Vergel

We do not have even one study that has looked at interactions of mushroom supplements with HIV medications. I would not take them since we really have not seen any promising data in HIV anyway.
