Olive leaf extract for herpes?

Recommended Posts

I've read a lot about Olive Leaf Extract and it's benefits and wondered if anyone has tried this. I bought some when I was first diagnosed because I saw it recommended in a herpes article that I read online. I only used it for about two weeks but stopped it because I got the flu and was on other meds at the time. I'm thinking of taking it again (I also take "Val" meds, L-Lysine, Vitamin B complex and Vitamin C). It says it's for all kinds of virus, colds, arthritis, and a lot more ailments/illnesses and for immunity. I especially found it interesting when it said for Herpes I and II and that it had the ability to interfere with amino acid production for viruses, an ability to contain viral infection/spreading by inactivating it so to prevent virus shedding, budding, and to penetrate infected cells and stop viral replication. Sounds awesome!


Anyone know about this? I just don't want to overload my system by taking so many meds/supplements but I'm up for anything that will lessen shedding to control transmission and help lessen outbreaks.


Here is one of the articles I read; very interesting.

There are all kinds of discussions on here about alternative treatments and I know Olive Leaf has been discussed somewhere in there ...


I wouldn't worry about "overloading" your system with natural substances as long as you take each one at the proper dose. However, your BIGGEST defense is learning how to not allow daily life to put you into a stress zone... it CAN be learned. Especially for the 99% of stuff that is not in your control and mostly "small stuff". Get THAT under control and you will likely see your Herpes OB's drop off dramatically :)


Here's some of the discussions about alternative Tx's :)
