Olive Leaf Extract as a Natural Cure for Herpes?


Hello, just curious to know if you guys recommend the Barleans olive leaf complex softgels (90mg, per capsule) for cure of herpes?


Hi and thanks for your question. We don't actually recommend Barleans, not because they aren't reputable, but because their OLE is just not strong enough. Two capsules provide only 90 mg's of Oleuropein. Compare that with the OLE supplements we recommend (Olivus) at 260 mg's of Oleuropein in just in one capsule!

Barleans OLE is probably okay for something like the common cold or flue, but not for the herpes virus.

Hope this helps.

All the best,

Swanson Super Strength Olive Leaf Extract?
by: Anonymous

Hi. Is it safe to take a product from Swanson - superior herbs olive leaf extract super strength. Olivus doesn't ship to India. Do you know another source from where it can be easily purchased from or will this Swanson super strength be effective?

Yes unfortunately Olivus doesn't ship to India. The Swanson brand is still reputable, however, the strength of their OLE is not as high. This just means you will need to take more. Start off taking two capsules per day (one in the morning and one at night on an empty stomach), then increase this to 3-4 capsules each day after a month. Vitalite supplements also make a very good quality super strength olive leaf extract as well... Olive Leaf Extract - Super Strength.

Hope this helps.

All the best!
