Spike Proteins ~ Dandelion Greens, Pine Needles & Stinging Nettle
A German university study found, that dandelion leaf extract prevented SARS-CoV-2 spike protein from attaching to the ACE2 surface receptors. The extract was also found to be effective against covid variants.
You read that right, a weed, that grows in the cracks of the sidewalk, that homeowners eradicate each year using toxic chemicals, can protect us from Covid. Dandelion leaf extract is available in liquid form, that can be taken with water, or added to food, or dandelion tea can be made using using plant’s leaves.
A compound, called suramin, found in pine needles is effective against viral replication and blood coagulation. Pine needles have been used by indigenous cultures around the world against various diseases, for thousands of years.
Stinging nettle is an herb with so many benefits, I’d run out of space, listing them. Every part of the plant, the roots, the stem, the leaves and the flowers are of value. While I have not found a study on nettle’s effect on SARS-CoV-2, with a powerful herb like this, biochemical pathways for prophylaxis likely do exist.
