Tea Is an Antiviral Beverage According to a Study; the CBCD Reviews a Report

People who drank 5 cups of black tea a day for 2 weeks had 10 times more virus-fighting interferon in their blood. (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

Many studies found that tea is effective against a wide range of viruses. These viruses include hepatitis B and C, the flu virus, and more. For example, one study found that a particular compound in green tea (epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a natural-origin compound) "was strong against (viral) DNA ." (2) Dr. Kim and colleagues wrote in another study that "one of the major flavonoid components of green tea, is known to have a broad antiviral activity against several enveloped viruses, including the influenza virus." (3) Dr. Kim is from the Virus Research and Testing Group, Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology in South Korea. Additionally, a Harvard study showed that there is an immune boosting enzyme called L-theanine, which is "abundant in both black and green tea- decaf versions." (1) In addition to drinking tea, 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 Novirin 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 its claims.

When it comes to tea, "regardless of variety, black and green tea (as well as oolong, dark, and white teas) come from the same plant, an evergreen called Camellia sinensis. It is the processing method and degree of oxidization (exposure to oxygen) that creates the different tea types … drinking green tea is associated with reduced mortality due to all causes, as well as mortality due to heart disease. Research also shows holistic benefits to green tea consumption, including lower blood pressure, oxidative stress, and chronic inflammation." (5)

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