Using the right “tool” (supplement, etc.) at the right time and/or in combination with other tools (supplements, etc.) can make a big difference in controlling or managing the herpes virus. Many “tools” have more than one function. Since we are physically unique, experimentation as to what or what combination of “tools” might work best will no doubt be required.  


Prevention

Help make outbreaks rare and mild.
 

Vitamin D3
The “sunshine” vitamin – the body converts sunlight into vitamin D. Studies show that most people in northern climates are deficient in vitamin D during the winter in particular. In this context vitamin D supports the antibodies of your immune system.


Antibodies are instrumental in helping to destroy viruses. Fewer antibodies mean a weaker immune system response. Studies have shown vitamin D3 is safe up to 10,000 IU’s a day. Beyond that recommendation levels are varied with

1,000 IU’s and 5,000 IU’s daily often mentioned. Uniform supplement levels are difficult to establish due to differences in climate, time of year and lifestyle.

Sunscreen
Use lip balm and sunscreen lotion. Sunshine is another trigger for many. University of Michigan studies show that ultraviolet radiation can decrease the number of circulating T cells/white blood cells in the immune system (cells responsible for deactivating viruses). And, sunlight does indeed trigger dormant herpes infections for many.
