  • What are the side effects?

    We have not seen any side effects in the studies we have done, including in patients on other medications who were taking Tollovid in acute situations. We have seen soy allergy (soy lecithin) related side effects for those allergic to soy, and so we are working to overcome that by using sunflower lecithin instead. We suggest that you work closely with your physician if you want to try our product and we would be happy to help discuss it with your doctor as well. You can tier up the use under a doctor's guidance which would be the best way to see if you experience any adverse effects.

  • Who should not take Tollovid?

    If you are pregnant, nursing, taking any medications or have any medical condition, consult a healthcare professional before use. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.

  • Are there any interactions with medications or supplements with Tollovid?

    We have not received any complaints of interactions with other supplements or medication. We recommend you consult with your local pharmacist or physician before starting a new supplement.

  • Can children take Tollovid?

    Tollovid was originally developed for those 18 years and older, but we recommend you consult your family physician or pharmacist if you are interested in offering Tollovid to your child. 

  • How long does Tollovid lasts before it expires?

    Each bottle of Tollovid should last about 3 years after the manufacturer's date. Always check the expiration date on your bottles for the most accurate information.


  • What is recommended dosage?

    We recommend 3 capsules, 4 times per day for 5 days for those struggling with an active infection or viral persistence. To maintain your immune health, we recommend 1 capsule 2 times per day.


  • How many mg are there in 1 capsule of Tollovid?

    Each capsule of Tollovid is 300 mg of our proprietary blend.


  • What is the full list of ingredients in Tollovid?
    • Lithospermum erythrorhizon Extract 
    • Sunflower Lecithin 
    • Powdered Cellulose
    • HPMC Capsule (Delayed Release)
    • Silicon Dioxide
    • Magnesium Stearate
    • Titanium Dioxide
  • What is Gromwell Root (Lithospermum erythrorhizon Extract)?

    Gromwell (Lithospermum erythrorhizon) is an herbaceous plant with powerful medicinal properties, widely used in modern and traditional Eastern healing practices. The root is the most commonly used part of the plant — The first recorded medicinal use of the root appeared in the ancient Chinese medical text, The Divine Farmer’s Materia Medica, 200 – 250 CE. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, its been used to reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and detoxify. 1

    Historically, Gromwell root has been used to treat skin lesions like psoriasis, eczema, hives, dermatitis, measles, smallpox, and rashes. Gromwell root has been cultivated in Japan for both its medicinal properties and to make a highly valued red-purple dye. In the European herbal tradition, Gromwell seed and root were used topically as poultices for skin issues. Some Indigenous North American tribes chewed it as a treatment for sinus infections and colds, drank it for contraceptive assistance, and they used it as a topical treatment for infections. 2

    Gromwell Root is a purifying ally that has detoxifying, blood purifying, and skin healing effects. Gromwell root is sweet in taste and has been shown to be antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory. 3

  • Are Tollovid and Gromwell Root the same product?

    Gromwell Root is not Tollovid. For each batch of Tollovid, we conduct chemical and heavy metal testing to ensure we are using the correct, unaltered species and to ensure it meets our target of 3CL Protease Inhibition. We have also been cleared by Informed Choice for sport which is a 3rd party independent review to ensure quality and compliance to world doping agency restrictions so athletes around the world can use Tollovid.

  • What is Lecithin?

    Lecithin is another key ingredient in Tollovid™. Lecithin is a substance that’s naturally found in the tissues of your body. It’s made up of fatty acids, and it has a variety of commercial and medical uses. Lecithin works as an emulsifier, meaning it suspends fats and oils and keeps them from mixing with other substances.

    Reduces Cholesterol: Lecithin has a pretty powerful impact on cholesterol. In a 2010 study, participants took a 500 milligram lecithin supplement on the daily for 2 months. It reduced total cholesterol levels by 42% and LDL levels by 56.15%.

    Supports Immune Function: Soy lecithin might bolster your immune system, especially if you have diabetes. One study found that daily lecithin supplements increased lymphocytes (natural killer cells) in diabetic rats by 92%. It also increased macrophage activity by 29% in nondiabetic rats. (Macrophages are white blood cells that fight cancer cells, microbes, and debris.)

    Digestive Aid: Lecithin might ease inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) symptoms. The fat contains phosphatidylcholine (PC), which helps protect the colon from inflammation and bacteria. A small 2010 study found that lecithin supplements reduced bowel inflammation in folks with ulcerative colitis by 50%. Lecithin might also help with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), but more research is needed.

  • Is the Lecithin is derived from soy?

    Yes, our lecithin is currently derived from soy. We do plan to switch to a sunflower-based Lecithin for future Tollovid production.

The Science

  • What is a 3CL protease?

    Formally known as C3 Endopeptidase, the main protease found in coronaviruses.

  • How do viruses infect our bodies?

    Simply put, viruses including the SARS-Cov-2 infect our bodies by attaching to our healthy cells to hijack our cell’s own mechanisms and make copies of itself. The hijacked cells then release the newly made virus to infect more of our cells.

  • What are proteases?

    Proteases are essentially proteins that are used to break down other certain chemical structures of protein in our bodies. On their own, proteases aren’t harmful. The process can help with digestion or with the breakdown of proteins involved in swelling and pain.

    On the flip side, proteases are necessary for certain health conditions and viruses to thrive. The 3CL protease, is an essential enzyme found in coronaviruses, allowing viruses to penetrate the host cells to cause infection and make us sick. 

  • What are protease inhibitors?

    Protease inhibitors, a class of medications also used to treat HIV and hepatitis C, have been shown to stop the viral life cycle. The first protease inhibitor to be approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was in December 1995.

    Protease inhibitors are designed to tightly bind to the protease enzyme, helping to stop a virus’s ability to replicate itself, halting the spread in it tracks. 3CL protease inhibitors shut down COVID-19 and other coronavirus-making apparatus, blocking its ability to function to make a single virus.

    Since 1995, new protease inhibitors and combinations with improved dosing have become available, but the protease inhibitors developed in the mid-1990s changed the course of many diseases and viruses.
