No side effects from meds since danactive
May 1, 2008

I've been drinking a bottle of danactive every morning with my meds and it's taken away all side effects. What's in it that's making that huge relief?

Response from Dr. Henry

Some patients with a variety of gut problems get some relief from a diet including more natural forms of bacteria that are in many forms of yogurt such as DanActive. Much normal gut function depends on a proper balance of normal bacteria which can do much to digest foods and keep out more harmful bacteria. Some patients with HIV drug related problems report some benefit from dietary changes like you describe though I haven't seen in formal data on that. KH

My Cocktail has grown, again - side effects
Not a question but a thank you!
