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 four capsules per day (two in the morning and two at night on an empty stomach), then increase this to 6-8 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!

Swansons vs Olivus
by: Anonymous

Dear Troy,

As a college student, I am trying to cure this by the cheapest means possible, however, I am happy to pay for my health should it be necessary.

I am just a little confused as you stated 3-4 capsules per day of Swansons would give the necessary dosage in comparison to 4-6 capsules per day of Olivus (stated on the herpes protocol). If the Olivus is stronger, would I not need less?

Secondly, is the Zane Hellas Oregano Oil good enough in comparison to the New Age Oregano Oil? The price difference is unbelievable.

Thank you so much for all your help!

The amount recommended for the Swanson brand was actually a typo error. It should have been 6-8 capsules per day not 3-4 (which has now been corrected). Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The Olivus brand is far superior and you really can't beat it in our opinion. It's up to you though at the end of the day. Because the Swanson brand is not as strong, you'll need to take more and it may actually end up costing you more. The Zane Hellas oregano oil still works extremely well. The people who've written to us and tested negative for the virus after doing this protocol all used the Zane Hellas brand.

Hope this helps.

All the best! :)
