Worth it!

I'm a teacher so unfortunately I get exposed to a lot of nasty bugs. I started taking this on onset of a fever and sore throat and was 95% after 24 hours. That's the quickest I've ever recovered from flu-like symptoms.

Staple in my Medicine Cabinet

I have tried a lot of different herbal supplements for immune support. This is by the most effective for me. Follow the instructions and take the does 5 times a day for 2 days at onset. It has definitely shortened, if not quickly resolved the majority of my colds over the last few years.

This is also a part of my essential travel kit when I go to Asia for work. I have a weak immune system, so taking a dose a day while traveling does wonders.

Highly recommend this product! Not to mention, Gaia Herbs is a great company to support.

Life Saver

I bought these because I NEVER get sick and within two months I got sick twice. I have been taking them anytime I travel or when I start to feel a little blah and wake up the next day feeling so much better. I highly recommend these for cold/flu season.

Has saved me many times!

I take Gaia Olive Leaf Extract every day for general immune support. As soon as I feel something coming on, I take a couple doses of this and so far it has prevented me from getting sick (has been over a year). When I first started using it, I would take it as suggested and it def shortened/lessened the severity of my symptoms but if I catch it fast enough, I just need a couple doses.

- Rachel

Miracle cure!

Took this as soon as i started to feel like i was catching a cold (achy, feverish, headaches, etc)- the next day I was feeling FANTASTIC! The cold symptoms weren't even in my memory! Love this stuff!

- Maya


Have you tried this stuff yet?

I take it whenever I am feeling run down and when everyone else around me is "sick". So far after 2+ years of taking this I am the only one to fend off the bugs. I don't really know much about how or why it works, but it does for me!
