Researcher Discovers Anti-Viral Properties of Cinnamon, With a Hint From the Bible

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 that Professor 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.


Cinnamon is a very powerful spice that, if you enjoy it, can make a healthy addition to your meals. Its anti-viral effects are quite significant, and even though this study used a cinnamon extract instead of the natural form, it is still very impressive that simply using this compound in hospital air conditioning systems could help prevent the spread of disease.

Cinnamon has a variety of additional health benefits that you can gain simply by using it in its natural form. 
For example, just half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day was shown to significantly reduce blood sugar levels, triglycerides, LDL (bad) cholesterol, and total cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes.

Cinnamon's other benefits include:

  • Supporting digestive function
  • Relieving congestion
  • Relieving pain and stiffness of muscles and joints
  • Anti-inflammatory compounds that may relieve arthritis
  • Helping to prevent urinary tract infections, tooth decay and gum disease
  • It's a powerful anti-microbial agent that can kill E. coli and other bacteria

And, if you’re looking for a non-toxic insect repellant, look no further. Another study found cinnamon oil to be a safe and effective pesticide and mosquito repellant.

What about the researcher’s idea to use a daily supplement of cinnamon extract as an alternative to the flu vaccine? Well, just about anything other than a mercury-laden flu vaccine is an improvement.
Of course, if you eat the right foods, reduce or eliminate grains and sugars, get proper sleep, exercise and nip emotional stresses in the bud, then your chance of contracting the flu in the first place is highly unlikely.

Seems to me that that is a far more solid strategy and approach. However, if you really do enjoy cinnamon, as I do, it's great to know that it is actually good for you.
