Acai Berry Juice
Jul 25, 2005

There are a growing number of HIV infected people taking acai berry juice supplements to counter HAART side effects. I can find no real medical data, only what looks to be "slick" marketing/advertising info.

Have you had any experience with this? Have you read anything in a medical journal? How do we know it's not contraindicated with HAART meds?

Response from Dr. Henry

I have not seen anything published about that product nor have any of my patients taken it that I am aware of. If any reader has a good reference please let us know. KH
