Best Way to Take Olive Leaf Extract for Herpes...
I have 20% OLE. In your article it says to take the largest dose recommended on the bottle. It says just to take one a day. So how many caps should I take to flush this out? They are 750 mg's.
Hi, and thanks for your question regarding the olive leaf extract for herpes.
Now with the OLE it's important to first understand that you cannot overdose on it. It's very safe to use and will not harm you at all. For OLE to get rid of the herpes simplex virus it must be taken in a high enough dosage and it must be taken long term. This is crucial.
If you have OLE containing 20% Oleuropein at 750 mg's then taking one capsule daily for 2 weeks then increasing to two capsules daily after that for the next 12 months would be wise (remember, it can take 12 full months to completely rid your body of the virus). Starting with one capsule for the first two weeks then increasing to two after this should prevent herxheimers reaction (for a refresher on this please read our herpes article again).
In addition, try and use the OLE as a topical treatment on your sores and blisters as well (this is also talked about and recommended in our article). This helps to get rid of the virus quicker and prevent further outbreaks.
Finally, don't forget about the other recommendations we suggest such as the "foods to avoid, foods to eat" and staying calm tips. These are also extremely important.
Hope this helps you.
Good luck and all the best,
