Goji Berries are they good with hiv meds?
      #251264 - 07/21/10 05:33 PM

I have been searching for healthy foods to eat whilst starting my ARV meds and online i came across Goji berries, they are full of antioxidants.

Would you recommend eating them?

I've similar questions about many other 'good for you' foods. Nobody can answer these questions unless there has been a clinical trial that tested goji with different meds.... not likely to happen.
The only naturopathic things I ran across that have been tested with hiv meds were milk thistle seed (helps the liver) and st. johns wort (taken for depression and used topically for bruises) and both inhibit the uptake of the drugs.
My doc said "look it up on pubmed - that's what I would do".
Personally, I wouldn't worry about it. btw blueberries are good too.
