The study will involve approximately 200 men & women who experience cold and flu symptoms (such as congestion, sore throat, fever, aches and pains). Each participant will take the Study Product (provided in capsules) for a 2-week period once cold or flu symptoms begin.
This study is a placebo-controlled trial which means that we will be comparing the effectiveness of the Active product to a placebo. In this study, 50% of participants will receive the Active product and 50% will receive the Placebo.
However, if you are found to have been on placebo during the study, you will be offered the active product after your participation has ended.
Once enrolled in the study, you will be allocated to either the Active product group (Olive Leaf Extract), or the Placebo group. This is the product you will take during your next cold/flu event, and will be posted to you.
Once you begin to experience your next cold or flu, you will be required to start taking your allocated Study Product, and to rate the severity of your symptoms until you return to normal health, or up to a maximum of 2 weeks.
The information we collect during the study will enable the investigators to assess the product’s effectiveness.
If you experience regular cold and flu episodes, aged between 18-65 and would like to help, we’d love to hear from you. Please register your interest by answering the questionnaire and completing the form on this page… we’ll then get in touch to screen you for suitability.
