Vitamins for cold sores, fever blisters, oral herpes are important for a lifetime of cold sore freedom.

One of the major vitamins for cold sores that you will read about here and there is Vitamin E.

Vitamin E is an oil soluble vitamin which can be stored by the liver. As a cold sore treatment, vitamin E is valuable on two levels.

First, internally, as a very powerful cold sore remedy, vitamin E is the primary immune system vitamin. It is commonly found in many foods such as grains (wheat germ, rice bran, etc) and meats. Vitamin E is composed of tocopherols and tocotrienols.

D-alpha tocopherol was considered, up until about 8 years ago, the active portion of vitamin E. And, until recently, alpha tocopherol is all you would get in a vitamin E or multiple vitamin supplement.

But God created, in nature, vitamin E as a package of several tocopherols and tocotrienols - for a reason! And now scientists have found that the complete package is, by far, more potent together than the individual ingredients are separately. You will find Vitamin E to be one of the best additions to cold sore remedies.

Make sure your supplement contains all the vitamin E tocopherols and tocotrienols.

For the health benefits you are looking for - you want a minimum of 400 IU per day. 800 IU per day is quite common for therapeutic level vitamin regimens. (The oil-based vitamins such as vitamin A, D, and E are measured in International Units- IU - rather than Milligrams). Vitamin E will be represented in any of the good cold sore remedies.

And make sure that it is not a man-made vitamin E. For example: d-alpha tocopherol is derived from natural sources. dl-tocopherol is made in the lab (note the L after the D)

Secondly, vitamin E can be purchased as an oil. This is great as a cold sore treatment. As I have written previously, it is important for comfort and faster healing to keep the cold sore scab well oiled to prevent painful cracking of your cold sore.

Cracking of you cold sore crust slows healing and causes contagious cold sores fluid leakage again.

Vitamin E oil is perfect for this level of cold sore treatment and it aids healing also. Works best when taken internally also -together as part of your vitamin therapy for a cold sore remedy.


Stop wasting your money on one cold sore treatment after another. Fed up with cold sore remedies that just don't work?

You have everything you need in your cupboard - quite likely, right now - to cure your cold sores permanently, in just two to three days.

Yes - You have the very best cold sore remedy right at your fingertips - you just need to know how to use it.

I know it sounds hard to believe but it is truly the last cold sore treatment you will ever need.

YOU NEED to do it now!
