Adding supplements has not been shown clinically to have an impact on outbreak frequency or severity.  

That doesn't mean if you have a nutritional deficiencies that it doesn't.  But for the majority of people who get Al the nutrients they need from food supplements don't seem to have an effect and in general better to save your money.  

Also Just because it doesn't work across the general population doesn't mean your individual results should be discounted.  

Being health is good but I would steer more towards a healthy diet of veggies, fruit, grains and lean protein.

Happybee,  atart with good general health, and do some reasearch.  Iv had this 6months so im not an expert but also i have read 100s of articles.  

Things that help

1) antivirals, still the best at reducing frequency and duration of occurances 

2) lysine, PROVEN to help reduce duration and recurrences.

3) olive leaf extract, cheap, no side effects, very good results in some people

4)  oregano oil, harder to use, a bit more expensive but very good results in some people.

Other oral sups and vita

Garlick, st. Johns wort, eccinacia, selenium, vit b,c,d, 

Topicals

Lemon balm- PROVEN to help reduces ob and speed up healing.

Zinc oxide- same as above.

I use all of the above.

Other things with good results but i havent tried

Bee pollen

Baby goat milk, i forget what its called 

Laurin, coconut extract

Bht

Colladeral silver

thc oil

Read up on these, and remember there is no cure, no matter what people claim

do you have any link that proves this? 

I don't think lysine does that much IMO. I was taking 2000mg a day. ( I have type 2)

"Dietary changes: Lysine is an amino acid that seems to inhibit the virus. ... Unfortunately, using lysine does not usually work for genital herpes. As an alternative, you can try taking monolaurin, a nontoxic, antiviral supplement made from lauric acid (a fatty acid found in breast milk) and glycerin"  :from dr Weil
