Researcher Discovers Anti-Viral Properties of Cinnamon, With a Hint From the Bible
July 30, 2007
Professor Michael Ovadia, a spiritual scientist from Tel Aviv University, has signed a research and license deal on his patent-pending cinnamon extract, which has potent anti-viral properties.
He received the hunch for his breakthrough research while listening to a reading from the Old Testament. The passage explains how the High Priests would prepare a holy oil, which they applied to their bodies before making a ritual animal sacrifice. Ovadia had a hunch that this oil, which was prepared with cinnamon and other spices, was in fact a means of preventing the spread of infection to the people.
However, the cinnamon extract Ovadia has created is not equivalent to eating regular cinnamon. It is extracted from a special variety of cinnamon -- coumarin and cinnamon aldehyde, which are byproducts of cinnamon “juice.”
Dr. Ovadia’s cinnamon extract has several potential uses, including:
- Disinfecting the air against the Avian flu in airports
- Being used as an alternative to the flu vaccine
- Immunizing chicken embryos against the Newcastle disease virus
- Using it in air conditioning systems in hospitals to prevent the spread of infectious diseases
Studies on the Avian Flu H9, the Sendai virus, HIV and Herpes Simplex 1 have also achieved positive results. The extract has been found to both neutralize viruses, as well as immunize against them.
