Well be careful.
I read some more and some people say it DESTROYS good intestinal flora as well as bad.  Not so great.

I've also been curious about this, as I've read that it has natural anti-HIV properties.  Of course, I've also read that it can totally interfere with HAART and make it less effective.  I don't know what is true, so I've decided to not take it.

When I asked my Dr about it, he kind of just rolled his eyes.  At least I wasn't called "New Age"...not to my face...
