Garlic? A Super Food? It Is According to a Study

A scientific study found that people who eat garlic are less likely to catch a cold. (1)


Rochester, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/12/2015 -- "Infected with a latent virus such as herpes, HPV, EBV, CMV, or HCV? The CBCD recommends taking Gene-Eden-VIR." - Greg Bennett, CBCD

Garlic is a superfood that contains an ingredient effective against viruses and bacteria. That ingredient is called allicin. "British researchers gave 146 people either a placebo or a garlic extract for 12 weeks; the garlic takers were two-thirds less likely to catch a cold. Other studies suggest that garlic lovers who chow more than six cloves a week have a 30 percent lower rate of colorectal cancer and a 50 percent lower rate of stomach cancer." (1) In another study, Dr. Shetty and colleagues wrote that "Garlic (Allium sativum Linn.) has been used as medicine since ancient times and has long been known to have antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties." (2) Dr. Goncagul concurred, writing that "It's also known that garlic is a wonderful plant having the properties of empowering immune system, anti-tumour and antioxidant effects." (3) In addition to eating garlic, the CBCD recommends taking Gene-Eden-VIR against latent viruses.

The formula of Gene-Eden-VIR 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 formula is effective against a broad range of latent 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)

Gene-Eden-VIR can be ordered online through its website, here:

Gene-Eden-VIR is a natural antiviral dietary supplement. Its formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinensis 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 is the only natural antiviral product on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.

If you choose to use garlic in your food, you should note that "You can increase the health benefits you receive from garlic by letting it sit after you've chopped it or crushed it. If you give your chopped/crushed garlic time to sit before changing its temperature (through cooking) or its pH (through the addition of acidic food like lemon juice), it will give the alliinase enzymes in garlic an opportunity to work on behalf of your health. For example, in the absence of chopping or crushing, research has shown that just 60 seconds of immediate microwaving will cause garlic to lose some of its cancer-protective properties. Immediate boiling of whole, intact garlic will also lower these properties, as will immediate addition of a very low-acid ingredient like lemon juice." (5)

"We believe in a comprehensive, positive blend of natural and Western medicines. It's clear that garlic has many health benefits, including immune system boosting properties. In addition to eating garlic, we recommend taking Gene-Eden-VIR." - Greg Bennett, CBCD
