Fighting Herpes with Cinnamon: Secrets of Traditional Chinese Medicine

By: polyDNA
March 9, 2014 - PRLog -- According to a report on, it has recently been discovered that a key formula in the treatment of herpes outbreaks in traditional Chinese medicine includes cinnamon (1). Today, cinnamon is making powerful inroads targeting latent HSV via optimized supplements, such as Gene-Eden-VIR.


The use of cinnamon in traditional medicine has a long and varied history, owing to the spice’s potent anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antiviral, antioxidant, anti-tumor, cardiovascular, and cholesterol-lowering properties. Evidence suggests that cinnamon also helps to boost the immune system. According to a study published in 2010 in the journal Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition (2), the bark of the cinnamon plant is the only part of the plant that contains these flavorful and medicinal qualities.

If one does not care for the taste of cinnamon, one can easily attain all of these benefits from a naturally-sourced supplement, such as Gene-Eden-VIR, which includes cinnamon among its active ingredients, and has recently been proven effective against HSV. Developed by scientists at polyDNA using the scientific method delineated by Dr. Hanan Polansky*, a post-marketing clinical study published in the peer-reviewed medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy (Advances in Antiviral Drugs, August 12, 2013), showed that Gene-Eden-VIR is safe and effective (5).

“Traditional Chinese medicine, or TCM, views herpes outbreaks as an…imbalance in your qi [vital life energy] (1).Chinese herbal treatments work by combining different herbs together, rather than focusing on the effect of an individual herb. The herbs in a TCM formula work synergistically (harmoniously) to create a healing effect. One formula that a TCM doctor might recommend for herpes is a kudzu decoction, a popular formula that includes licorice, peony, ginger, jujube and cinnamon. The kudzu helps release any tightness in the body. In TCM terms, this formula is ideal for releasing infection (1).”

Western medicine is slowly waking up to the antiviral potential of cinnamon. A study published in 2008 in the Journal of General Virology admitted that“Cinnzeylanine inhibits the proliferation of herpes simplex virus type 1 in Vero cells (3).”Another study,  published in 2000 in the Indian Journal of Medical Research, revealed that cinnamon “was highly effective against HIV-1 and HIV-2 (4).”
