supplementing with probiotics

Jul 8, 2014

Would it be ok or a smart idea to supplement with probiotic's if you are current living with the HIV infection? I understand that probiotic's claim to help one's digestive system in addition to supporting immune health. Any thoughts or research on this?

Response from Mr. Vergel

The answer is yes but we still await for data on the actual benefits of taking probiotics in HIV+ people.
