Molecule in Nigella sativa (black seed) may prevent spike protein-induced vascular damage, scientists conclude in published paper indexed by NIH (updated)

http://

New research published in the journal Vascular Pharmacology shows that a molecule found in Nigella sativa, also known as black seed or black cumin, binds to ACE2 receptors in the lungs, potentially stopping spike protein particles from inducing inflammation and vascular damage. The molecule is being studied for possible drug development. Continue reading

Dandelion leaf spike proteins from binding to the ACE2 cell

http://

The engineered spike proteins from SARS-CoV-2 can be STOPPED by a common “weed” that is exterminated from lawns every year. A German university study found that the common dandelion (Taraxacum officinalecan block spike proteins from binding to the ACE2 cell surface receptors in human lung and kidney cells. The water-based dandelion extract, taken from the plant’s dried leaves, was effective against spike protein D614 and a host of mutant strains, including D614G, N501Y, K417N and E484K. Continue reading
