New botanical formula for Human Papillomavirus (HPV)

November, 2017    |

There are several antiviral drugs available to treat HPV and other viruses, but until now there were very few natural options. As reported in three medical journals:  Pharmacology and Pharmacy (1); Drug Design, Development and Therapy (2); and Clinical and Translational Medicine (3), a patented blend of natural ingredients is providing great promise in treating symptoms of viruses many people carry in their bodies for life. In fact, they state that the botanical performed better than the current, most commonly-prescribed drugs.

The reports state that the product is a safe and effective treatment for people infected with HPV, HSV, EBV, Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV), and Hepatitis C Virus (HCV).  Further, the formula is a safe and effective treatment against genital herpes.  A fourth report in Drug Design, Development and Therapy showed that it cleared the latent infection of human papillomavirus (HPV) in 100% of the participants in the study over the course of a year.

Testing was conducted with patients having the most common symptoms of HPV and the herpesvirus family. This family includes herpes simplex viruses (HSV) which can manifest as cold sores and genital herpes, varicella-zoster virus (VZV) which causes chickenpox and shingles, and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), a cause of infectious mononucleosis, or “mono”. These viruses may remain dormant in the body for life, which is termed a “latent” infection, with or without noticeable symptoms. Collectively, these viruses contribute to a host of health issues which include skin outbreaks, fever, increased fatigue and a few other symptoms depending on the virus.

The product is herbal-based and contains quercetin, extracts of licorice, green tea, and cinnamon, and the mineral selenium all in a “patented botanical systemic treatment” formula. Sold under the brands Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin, Lily Corp’s web site for the new product states, “The difference between the two products is that Novirin has higher quality, more expensive ingredients.”

The medical journal reports conclude, “Gene-Eden-VIR/Novirin decreased the duration of genital herpes outbreaks, in both severe and mild cases, without any side effects” with the best results in those taking the product the longest. The clinical study (1) showed that Gene-Eden-VIR is a safe and effective treatment against the Human Papillomavirus (HPV), Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV), Epstein Barr Virus (EBV), Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV), and Hepatitis C Virus (HCV). Therefore, health care practitioners should recommend Gene-Eden-VIR as a safe and effective antiviral treatment against these viruses.”

The product’s corporate web site cautions that once taken, discontinuation of the product may result in symptoms returning, possibly worse than before, which is an odd commentary as that could be considered a side-effect. However, if the product performs better than prescribed drugs in the millions of people affected by these viruses, this would truly be a real breakthrough in the natural health supplement industry, and proven by medical science
