Statins Can Cause Chronic Fatigue; The CBCD Summarizes Scientific Studies

Industry: Health & Fitness

Studies show that statins interfere with the production of energy at the cellular level. The CBCD reviews the medical literature.

“Are you taking statins? We recommend taking Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR. Statins damage the immune system. This increases the number of latent viruses in the body. Latent viruses cause chronic fatigue.” – Greg Bennett

Dr. Armon B. Neel Jr, M.D., said that “Studies show that statins stop the production of satellite cells in the muscle, stopping muscle growth. Some researchers have also suggested that statins interfere with the production of energy at the cellular level in the same way that they interfere with the production of cholesterol.” (1) These drugs are commonly used to lower cholesterol. These drugs have many side effects, such as damaging the central nervous system. Armon B. Neel Jr., PharmD, CGP, is a board-certified geriatric pharmacist.

Other side effects are depletion of vitamins and minerals that the body uses for producing energy, and interfering with the activity of immune cells. For example, Dr. Wulf Palinsky and Dr. Sotirios Tsimikas say that “There is substantial evidence that statins may modulate immune responses. These include effects on (many functions of the immune system, such as) the intimal recruitment, differentiation, proliferation, and secretory activity of a number of immune cells.” (2)  Dr. Palinsky and Dr. Tsimikas are with the Department of Medicine at the University of California.

Suppressing the immune system can lead to a reactivation of latent viruses in the body. For example, weakening the immune system can allow an infection with a latent virus, such as with the Epstein Barr Virus (EBV), to create conditions favorable to viral reactivation and to feelings of fatigue. In fact, the CDC notes that the virus itself is responsible for feelings of “extreme fatigue.” (3)

The CBCD recommends that people infected with a latent virus take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin. 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 a (latent virus)…reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (4) The study authors also wrote that “we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (4)

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

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, Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.
