Peter Miller - Why is olive leaf extract listed as an “inactive” ingredient? Very peculiar.

Richard (Founder) - Peter – We have to follow FDA labeling regulations. Since olive leaf extract is not a medicine, when it appears as an ingredient in any of our homeopathics, it has to be listed as an inactive ingredient.
When it appears as an ingredient in any of our supplements it is not called “active” or “inactive”. It is just an ingredient.

Ron - I read that OLE cures herpes. Your thoughts or opinion?

Richard (Founder) - Ron-
We have seen many of those studies too. In fact we have initiated several small informal tests on this subject on our own over the years.
However, the FDA does not allow us to make any statement on our labels, literature, website, etc. or even link to another website making such a claim because natural supplements are not medicines and therefore cannot make any medical claims. So I cannot even give you our thoughts or opinions without running the risk of having the FDA cite us. Sorry.
Thank you
