Beware of the CMV Virus; the CBCD Examines the Medical Evidence
Industry: Health & Fitness
Studies show that the CMV is linked to heart disease, diabetes, pneumonia, congenital birth defects, and other diseases. The CBCD recommends two natural CMV remedies.

The CMV virus is dangerous. The human cytomegalovirus is linked to many different diseases, including heart disease and diabetes. For example, according to a study published in the journal Circulation, the authors wrote that “in men with CMV … inflammation also seems to be the mediator between the virus and atherosclerosis (heart disease).” (1) Another study published in the journal Immunity and Ageing found that after examining 500 elderly patients, “researchers concluded that those infected with CMV were also significantly more likely to suffer from type two diabetes.” (2) Again, another study shows that CMV can cause a viral infection of the lungs that becomes pneumonia. Dr. Cinel and colleagues wrote in a new study that CMV lung infections are “being recognized more frequently, particularly when presenting as severe viral pneumonia.” (3) Dr. Cinel and colleagues are from the Hacettepe University in Ankara, Turkey. Finally, MedLine Plus says that “up to 90% of infants who have symptoms of (congenital CMV infection) at birth will have neurologic abnormalities later in life.” (4) CMV is not a harmless virus. The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) points out that because CMV is a common virus that infects people of all ages, individuals should take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR to help the immune system target the latent virus.

The formula of these natural antiviral products was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin formula is effective against the herpes simplex virus, and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, “individuals infected with the CMV … reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (5) The study authors also wrote that, “we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (5)
Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.
The CDC notes that “cytomegalovirus (CMV) is one of the herpesviruses. This group of viruses includes the herpes simplex viruses, varicella-zoster virus (which causes chickenpox and shingles), and Epstein-Barr virus (which causes infectious mononucleosis, also known as mono). CMV is a common infection that is usually harmless. Once CMV is in a person’s body, it stays there for life. Among every 100 adults in the United States, 50 – 80 are infected with CMV by the time they are 40 years old.” (6) Additionally, “most people don’t realize that they have been infected with CMV.
CMV can cause serious disease in people with a weakened immune system.” (6)
What treatments are available against the cytomegalovirus?
“Several drugs are approved for the treatment of CMV infections in immunocompromised individuals. These drugs include ganciclovir, its oral prodrug valganciclovir, cidofovir, foscavir and fomivirsen. However, the use of these drugs in immunocompetent individuals is limited by their toxicity, poor oral bioavailability, modest efficacy, and the development of drug resistance.” (5) There are also two natural CMV remedies with a clinically proven formula.
The CBCD believes that these facts, combined with the medical evidence presented above, indicate the need to target latent viruses like CMV.
