Supplements I take
Dec 29, 2013
I take several supplements but am not on ART yet. When I start ART, what do I need to be mindful of.
Here is my list Ubiquinol Lycopene Spirulina Antioxidant-A,C,E, Zinc and Selenium Iron Resveratrol Mushroom complex Vitamin D3 Probiotics Krill oil Garlic Grapefruit seed extract Joint support complex -Vit C,S loxin, Turmeric, White willow, Ginger, Pepper spice
Response from Mr. Vergel
If I were you, I would stop:
Grapefruit seed extract- It may increase blood levels of antiretrovirals. This could increase medication side effects.
Garlic- Contradictory data show that it can also affect medication blood levels
Pepper spice- Also a booster of medications
Iron- Easily stored in the liver and cause liver toxicity
Resveratrol- Very hyped but it has not been found to do much.
I am glad you reached out!
