supplements and medication
Dec 9, 2012

Hi I have checked your forums and answers and I could'nt find the answer. I am 45 on medication 6 years and CD4 around 700 and vl below 50. With my meds I would like to start olive leaf extract and coenzyme Q10 and colostrum and vitamin c. I haven't use supplements before I want to boost my immune systm if I can...Those all togehter are too much?


Response from Mr. Vergel

None of them have been studied or proven to increase CD4 cells in HIV+ people. I have found no data on potential interactions of olive leaf extract and colostrum on HIV drug blood levels.
