How to use cinnamon in HIV treatment

Updated on September 11, 2012

Why use cinnamon in HIV treatment?

Cinnamon can be used together with antiretrovirals (ARVs) treatment to improve the health of a patient living with the HIV virus. People living with HIV should therefore continue to seek medical treatment and care; and continue to take their medication as required. Cinnamon however has numerous benefits to those living with the HIV virus as discussed below.

Ongoing HIV research to determine cinnamon benefits:

The Indian Journal of Medical Research published in the year, 2000 a study that Cinnamomum cassia and Cardiospermum helicacabum which are cinnamon species, contain compounds that are effective extracts against HIV-1 and HIV-2 respectively. In another study, scientists at the Pune- based Indus Biotech claim that the dalchini ( cinnamon) plant has properties which can help keep HIV- infected people healthy by turning them into into HIV controllers. HIV controllers are people who don't develop AIDS even after carrying the virus for 10- 15 years. The scientists extracted a molecule, IND-02 from the plant, which is believed to prevent replication of HIV by protecting a crucial defence protein called APOBEC3G ( apolipoprotein B mRNA editing enzyme, catalytic polypeptide- like 3G), produced by CD4 cells. The APOBEC3G neutralises the virusand since Virus Infectivity Factor (produced by HIV) damages APOBEC3G. IND-02 thus stops degradation of APOBEC3G and body's own cells are thus able to keep the virus under control.

In HIV, other benefits of taking cinnamon include:

1. Stimulates digestive juices, encouraging bowel movements,

2. It's a natural anti-viral against flu as well as HIV.

3. In weight loss efforts; cinnamon can help improve lean muscle mass while burning off fat.

4. It contains an essential oil with a fragrance that can improve memory and cognitive functioning.

5. The cinnamon-derived dietary factor cinnamic aldehyde (cinnamaldehyde) activates the Nrf2-dependent antioxidant response in human epithelial colon cells and therefore, may prevent colorectal cancer.

6. A substance, CEppt that is contained in the cinnamon plant, inhibits development of Alzheimer's disease in mice.

7. Eugenol, a major component of the essential oil from the leaves of the cinnamon tree, has antiviral properties in vitro, against both HSV-1 and HSV-2 (Oral and Genital Herpes) viruses as published in the journal, Phytotherapy Research.

8. Cinnamon has natural anti-microbial properties and is also a food preservative, preventing the growth of yeast, mold, and bacteria including E. coli.

Cinnamon tea preparation in HIV treatment

The cinnamon is best taken with honey and lemon tea. The tea is very simple to prepare. You would require one cup of water, two teaspoons of honey, 3 cinnamon sticks or half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder, three teaspoonfuls of fresh lemon juice or three slices of lemon, and one teaspoon sugar, which is optional. You take the water and boil it for a while, just like you would while preparing regular tea. Then add some tea leaves or tea bag to the hot water, and leave it for a while. Make sure you heat the water well, then pour the mixture into a cup and add honey to it. Now you could either add three slices of lemon, allowing it to gradually mix with honey, or you could simply add three teaspoonfuls of lemon juice to the tea, and the cinnamon sticks or powder. The tea can be prepared and taken at least twice or thrice daily.

Do you think whether cinnamon should be included as part of HIV treatment & care?

      Hi HealthyTipsU--

      I agree that cinnamon is a great daily supplement that helps in many ways. But whether it is a magic bullet for HIV is questionable.
