Study: Licorice Effective Against Hepatitis C Virus; polyDNA Recommends Gene-Eden-VIR with Licorice to Reduce Symptoms of HCV Infection

February 12, 2014

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) February 12, 2014

A study found that many compounds found in licorice target the hepatitis C virus. Licorice root comes from the licorice plant (1). Its active, antiviral ingredient is called “glycyrrhizin.” The natural, antiviral supplement, Gene-Eden-VIR, contains licorice. Gene-Eden-VIR was proven to reduce HCV symptoms in a post-marketing clinical study that followed FDA guidelines.

The results of the study revealed that “a methanol extract of G. uralensis roots (Chinese licorice) and its chloroform fraction possessed anti-HCV activities …Through bioactivity-guided purification and structural analysis, we isolated and identified glycycoumarin, glycyrin, glycyrol and liquiritigenin as anti-HCV compounds (1).” Additionally, “We also found that licochalcone A and glabridin, known as the exclusive constituents of G. inflata and G. glabra, (other licorice ingredients) respectively, possessed anti-HCV activities… another chalcone, isoliquiritigenin (more licorice ingredients), also showed anti-HCV activity (1).”

Another study noted that licorice has been known to act against HCV for thousands of years. “Historical sources for the use of Glycyrrhiza species (the active ingredient in licorice) include ancient manuscripts from China, India and Greece. They all mention its use for symptoms of viral respiratory tract infections and hepatitis.” (See the journal Phytotherapy Research, from September 20, 2007) (2).

“Hepatitis C is a liver disease that results from infection with the hepatitis C virus. It can range in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a serious, lifelong illness. Hepatitis C is usually spread when blood from a person infected with the hepatitis C virus enters the body of someone who is not infected… Hepatitis C can be either ‘acute’ or ‘chronic.’ Acute hepatitis C virus infection is a short-term illness that occurs within the first 6 months after someone is exposed to the hepatitis C virus. For most people, acute infection leads to chronic infection. Chronic hepatitis C is a serious disease than can result in long-term health problems, or even death.” (See the CDC’s webpage on hepatitis C, last updated May 6, 2013) (3).

“Licorice is an ingredient of Gene-Eden-VIR. We therefore recommend that those infected with the hepatitis C virus talk to their doctor about Gene-Eden-VIR. This natural product was proven to reduce HCV symptoms in a post-marketing clinical study that followed FDA guidelines.” – Mike Evans, polyDNA

A recent post marketing clinical study published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs on August 12, 2013 showed that Gene-Eden-VIR is safe and effective (4).

Each ingredient of Gene-Eden-VIR was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals around the world to identify the safest, most effective natural ingredients that target the latent form of hepatitis C (4).

polyDNA is a biotechnology company that develops dietary supplements using the unique scientific method developed by Dr. Hanan Polansky, which is based on Computer Intuition.

In addition to his unique scientific method, Dr. Polansky published the highly acclaimed scientific discovery, called Microcompetition with Foreign DNA. The discovery explains how foreign DNA fragments, and specifically, DNA of latent viruses, cause most major diseases.

polyDNA developed Gene-Eden-VIR, an antiviral natural remedy that helps the immune system kill latent viruses.
