Welcome to Phoenix Rising!
Created in 2008, Phoenix Rising is the largest and oldest forum dedicated to furthering the understanding of and finding treatments for complex chronic illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), fibromyalgia (FM), long COVID, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS), and allied diseases.

The results show that SFN inhibits transactivation activity of the EBV
immediate-early gene Rta but not Zta. Together, our results suggest that SFN has the capability to inhibit EBV lytic
cycle and the potential to be taken as a dietary compound for prevention of EBV reactivation.
Have you gone any further with trying this? I found it in a powder form, not sure it would be as effective but a lot easier to deal with.As I read this, it appears that SFN may inhibit the early EBV proteins during lytic replication. It is thought by some, that an aborted viral infection, leaving early protein garage in human cells, might be causing cellular dysfunction in ME/CFS. Perhaps, SFN might be complimentary in disrupting early EBV protein replication?
Certainly don’t need to waste time/money on things that don’t work, thanks.I took sulforophane and broccoli sprouts early on, as well as artesunate, ozobr and high dose vitamin C. Even though they're all useful on paper, they did nothing for my EBV and other viral infections. I spent a lot of money and wasted a lot of time, until I got onto Valcyte and IVIG.
Maybe for someone who's not too ill, it would be useful, but with a full blown case of EBV driven ME/CFS, my opinion is one needs bigger guns.
