Herpes Viruses Uses Food with Arginine to Replicate

Arginine helps the herpes virus to replicate. (1)

while L-arginine has certain health benefits, it is not recommended if you are suffering from any active herpes infection.
— Dr. Mercola

“Infected with the herpes simplex virus (HSV-1 or HSV-2)? The CBCD recommends taking Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin against the latent virus.” – Greg Bennett, CBCD

Research shows that the amino acid arginine promotes the replication of the herpes simplex virus, especially HSV-1. “Arginine is a nonessential amino acid that is present in excess in the cell-culture medium used to propagate HSV-1.”(1) Dr. Grady and colleagues wrote in a study that “the amino acid (arginine) is necessary for productive infection.” (1) Because of this fact, doctors recommend that individuals infected with the oral herpes virus (usually HSV-1) cut foods high in arginine from their diet. According to Dr. Deborah Gordon, an integrative medicine practitioner, these foods include: “peanuts, chocolate and carob, wheat and wheat germ, oats, soy foods, some types of nuts, peanuts, and sesame seeds.” (2) Dr. Mercola notes that while L-arginine has certain health benefits, “It is not recommended if you are suffering from any active herpes infection. This would include herpes simplex, as in oral or genital herpes, or herpes zoster, as in shingles. If you have this type of infection, you should supplement with lysine (a different amino acid) until the lesions are resolved and avoid L-arginine supplements during the infectious phase.” (3)

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) also recommends taking Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin against the latent HSV-1. The formula of these natural, antiviral products was shown to reduce symptoms associated with herpes infection in two separate post-marketing clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. Additionally, the formula was designed to help the immune system target the latent HSV.

The formula of Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD. The studies showed that the Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin formula is effective against the family of herpes viruses, including HSV-1. 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 (HSV-1 or HSV-2)…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, here:


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

Note: Novirin shares the same formula as Gene-Eden-VIR. The difference between the two is that Novirin has higher quality and more expensive ingredients.

What treatments are available for herpes infections?

“Two types of antiviral treatments against HSV are available: topical and oral. The treatments include penciclovir, acyclovir, famciclovir, and valaciclovir. However, their effectiveness is limited. For instance, a meta-analysis of five placebo-controlled and two dose comparison studies evaluated the effect of aciclovir, famciclovir or valaciclovir on symptoms. The meta-analysis showed that oral antiviral therapy decreases the duration and the associated pain of an outbreak by merely one day.” (4) There are also the natural supplements Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR, which have a formula that was designed to help the immune system target the herpes virus when it is in a latent form.

The CBCD reminds the public that Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are not a cure. However, two clinical studies, published in peer reviewed medical journals showed that their formula decreases symptoms in infected individuals. Specifically, the formula of Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin was shown to safely and effectively reduce herpes symptoms. Additionally, it was designed to help the immune system target the latent virus.

“We recommend that individuals who are infected with a latent herpes virus, take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin.” – Greg Bennett, CBCD
