Cold sores are most active during the summer season due to the increased sun and stress of travelling to holiday destinations.
A natural cold sore rescue lip gel containing an extract of liquorice and melissa oil could help reduce the intensity of cold sore outbreaks and make summer holidays cold sore FREE.
Liquorice & Melissa rescue lip gel helps reduce the intensity of outbreaks due to its strong anti-viral action.
Sufferers should apply the lip gel at the first tingling from an impending cold sore. In addition, unlike conventional treatments, the rescue lip gel can be applied before symptoms arise in situations that increase the risk of getting a cold sore such as before a flight.
The two key cold sore fighting ingredients in the rescue lip gel are glycyrrhizic acid (GA) from liquorice and melissa oil. GA specifically targets the genes that are required to maintain the virus in its latent state by interfering with the production of special proteins that feed the infected cells.
A trial by the Herpes Virus Association found that a lip balm containing concentrated liquorice extract helped reduce the frequency and intensity of cold sore outbreaks if used regularly. It reduced the severity and duration of outbreaks for over 73% of subjects tested and, furthermore, 83% of subjects using the liquorice balm reported experiencing less severe outbreaks than when using their conventional treatments.
Melissa oil is renowned for its strong anti-viral action. A study in November 2004 and published in the prestigious journal Phytomedicine, found that a concentrated extract of 50 micro/ml had a significant anti-viral effect on the herpes simplex virus.
