Does Binge Drinking Damage the Immune System?; The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) Reviews a Medical Report

Share Article

A new study found that “Young adults who engage in just one bout of binge drinking may experience a … significant drop in their immune system,” according to a report published on Healthday.com on January 5, 2015. (1) The CBCD recommends Novirin to help boost the immune system.

“Infected with the herpes virus (HSV-1, or HSV-2)? The CBCD, which conducted two separate post-marketing clinical studies on the natural, antiviral formula of Novirin, recommends taking this effective herpes remedy to help the immune system target the latent HSV.” - Greg Bennett, CBCD

Everyone knows that drinking too much alcohol isn't healthy. A new study suggests that even short term, heavy drinking is dangerous. This type of drinking is known as “binge” drinking, and it can seriously damage the immune system. “It's well-known that drinking ups injury risk, and this new study suggests that immune system impairment might also hamper recovery from those injuries … it's been shown that if there is infection or injury, the body will be less well able to defend against it.” (1) The new research found immune system damage occurs while alcohol is still in the system. Binge drinking is defined as “having 5 or more drinks in a row for men. For women, it's 4 or more drinks in a row. This amount of drinking will produce blood alcohol levels far above the legal driving limit of 0.08%.” (See The University of Rochester Medical Center) (2)

This research is important because, as the Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) points out, any damage to the immune system can lead to an increase in the number of latent viruses, and even reactivation of a virus from a latent state. These two effects may lead to a major disease. This is exactly what happens with the herpes virus. After an initial infection, it establishes a life-long latent infection, and can reactivate, causing a painful outbreak whenever the immune system is weakened. “For most, a sore appears, heals and is forgotten, although the virus remains latent just waiting for the right circumstances to come back.” (See ScienceDaily.com from October 31, 2012) (3) The CBCD recommends that individuals infected with the herpes virus, stop binge drinking and take Novirin to help maintain the health of their immune system. The formula of this natural herpes remedy was found to safely and effectively reduce HSV symptoms in two separate post-marketing clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines.

The formula of Novirin 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 the herpes simplex family of viruses, which includes VZV. 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 (herpes viruses) … reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment…” (4) The study authors also wrote that, “we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (4)

Novirin is a natural antiviral dietary supplement. Its formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis 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, Novirin is the only natural antiviral product on the market with published clinical studies that support its claims.

Dr. Majid Afshar wrote that “if you already have an infection, binge drinking might make it worse. Or it might make you more susceptible to a new infection. It's hard to say for sure, but our findings suggest both are certainly possible.” (1)

“About one in six American adults binge-drinks about four times a month, with higher rates seen among young adults between 18 and 34, figures from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate.” (1)

The CBCD recommends that HSV infected individuals stop binge drinking, and begin drinking only in moderation. Additionally, the CBCD recommends helping to maintain the health of the immune system by taking Novirin. The formula of this natural antiviral was designed to help the immune system safely and effectively target the latent HSV.

What other treatments are currently 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 is also the natural supplement Novirin, which has a formula that was designed to help the immune system target the herpes virus when it is in a latent form.

“Because binge drinking can expose the body to the negative effects of a latent viral infection, we recommend that individuals take Novirin. The formula of these natural antiviral products was designed to help the immune system target latent viruses.” – Greg Bennett, CBCD
