People who have the herpes virus may be interested to know that in a double blind placebo controlled study, in association with the Herpes Viruses Association (HVA), many volunteers taking Elagen reported shorter, fewer and less severe outbreaks of the herpes virus; including less cold sores. The HVA tested them on over 100 members against a placebo capsule in a 6 month, double-blind trail. 68% of the people taking the Elagen found that they had fewer/shorter/no outbreaks.
