Viral Fusion Inhibition
Viral Fusion Inhibition is exactly what it sounds like: the interference of a virus particle’s ability to fuse (bind to) a human host cell, which is the first stage of the virus life cycle.
If a virus cannot successfully attach itself to its target host cell, it cannot penetrate the host cell to insert its viral DNA or RNA, and thus it cannot proceed to reproduce inside the host cell.
Viral Fusion Inhibition is one of the hottest topics in viral research and medicine today, as it offers an opportunity to stop the viral life cycle at its earliest stage. Many viruses are non harmful, or only mildly so, such as the common cold, which is caused by a virus known as the human rhinovirus. Other viruses can be deadly, such as the Ebola virus, or hepatitis virus. Other viruses, such as the Herpes virus (which causes Cold Sores) may not be deadly or life-threatening in most circumstances, but they can often result in extremely painful or embarrassing outbreaks.
ViraFend Cold Sore Defense Formula‘s primary ingredient – Activated Humic Acid – acts to impede the ability of virus particles to attach to human host cells in a process known as Viral Fusion Inhibition.
Research indicates that Activated Humic Acid functions both at the point of Viral Attachment, as well as at the point when newly reproduced viral particles are released from the host cells in which they incubated.
Activated Humic Acid interferes with a virus’ ability to attach to a host cell, penetrate the host cell, and reproduce itself. Scientific studies have demonstrated that if a host cell is penetrated before the introduction of the Activated Humic Acid, the viral reproductive process within the host cell is not halted.
HOWEVER, if one has latently infected cells (those with chronic viral infections such as Herpes simplex virus) and Activated Humic Acid is present, once the host cell releases the new viruses into the bloodstream the Activated Humic Acid helps prevent the new generation(s) of viruses from attaching to the cell wall of new host cells, hijacking the DNA or RNA and reproducing, and thus it can effectively lower the body’s viral load over time.
