Abstract

Purpose

Advances in antiretroviral therapy (ART) and increased interest on nutritional interventions have led to improvements in life expectancy of people living with HIV (PLHIV). These have led to greater emphasis on their quality of life (QoL). This study was aimed at exploring the effects of Moringa oleifera leaves supplementation on QoL of HIV-positive adults in Nigeria.

Method

A double-blind randomized controlled trial was conducted to determine the six months’ impact of consuming Moringa oleifera leaves powder as a nutritional supplement on the different domains of QoL of PLHIV that are on ART. Two hundred consented patients were randomly allocated to either Moringa Oleifera group (MOG) or control group (COG). The WHOQOL-HIV-BREF was used to assess QoL at baseline and at six-month follow-up.

Results

One hundred and seventy seven patients completed the study. At six-month follow-up, a significant (p < 0.05) increase in the mean scores of all the six domains of QoL was observed in the MOG. However, in the COG, a significant increase was observed in the social relationship, environment, and spirituality/religion/personal beliefs domains. The comparison between the MOG and COG at 6 months’ follow-up showed a significant mean score difference in the MOG in the physical, psychological, level of independence, and social relationships domains of QoL.

Conclusion

This study shows that supplementation with Moringa oleifera leaves for PLHIV that are on ART improves the QoL domains of physical, psychological, level of independence, and social relationships.
