Dear Noluthando
The results of the trials with African potato in HIV/AIDS were published awhile ago and the researchers concluded that the African potato plant does not have a positive effect. In fact, the trial was cut short because the people taking part developed negative side-effects. I would, therefore, not recommend its use.
