Spirulina & Meds
Jul 22, 2013

Hello! Do you know anything about taking spirulina pills along with my meds? Ive been on treatment for almost 3 years now I ever since I started taking them feel much better, my viral load has been undeteactable since de 6th month of my 2nd test and everythings good. I excersice regularly and recently a nutriologist friend recomended taking spirulina to help my immune system and to have more energy overall. Ive done some internet research and what they say is that altough it helps to boost your immune system it can interfere with the treatment. Im on Truvada+Efavirens combo and it works perfectly. I will appreciate if you have any information regarding spirulina and the meds im taking. Thanks a lot :)

Response from Mr. Vergel

Spirulina has not been shown to improve immune function in controlled studies. Do not waste your money.
