“Infected with the herpes virus (HSV-1 or HSV-2)? We recommend taking Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR.” – Greg Bennett, CBCD

Many people are concerned about the cost of herpes drugs and remedies. To help individuals who suffer from herpes infections, the Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) compared the cost of Valtrex, Acyclovir (Zovirax), Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR. The first two are FDA approved medications while the third and fourth are natural, antiviral remedies.

Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are not drugs. That is, they were not approved by the FDA as drugs. They are dietary supplements designed to help the immune system target latent viruses. In contrast, FDA approved drugs against herpes were designed to treat symptoms associated with a herpes infection.

“I used to take Acyclovir daily, but then I lost my insurance and could no longer afford a month’s supply. Taking care of my outbreaks has just been so hard since that happened. I’m looking around, constantly trying to find a way to save on herpes medications. I hate it that I have needs and I can’t afford to cover them on my own.” – Jenna R.

According to, the cost of a month’s supply of the leading name brand herpes drug, one of the most common anti-herpes medications, is $1275 for the brand name at the CVS Pharmacy. (1) The cost of the generic brand is only slightly less.

While generic brand is significantly cheaper, this herpes medication still costs at least $140.00 for 90 pills. (1)

Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are antiviral remedies that boost the immune system against the latent herpes virus. This means Novirin is $87.01 cheaper than the generic brand, and well over $1,000 cheaper than the name brand. Gene-Eden-VIR is $97.01 cheaper than the generic brand, and is also over $1,000 cheaper than the name brand.

The CBCD therefore recommends that people infected with the herpes virus take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR. 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 EBV 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 herpes virus (HSV-1 or HSV-2)…reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (2) The study authors also wrote that “we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (2)

Both products can be ordered online on the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR websites.

Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR 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 CBCD therefore recommends that individuals infected with the herpes virus (HSV-1 or HSV-2) take either Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR.
