German scientists have discovered a natural product that can suppress up to 97% of coronavirus infection in the body. The findings of specialists from the Institute of Molecular Virology of the Medical Center of the University of Ulm appeared on the bioRxiv portal.
In the course of the study, scientists found that chokeberry juice can suppress up to 97% of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The influenza virus was suppressed even more actively. Green tea and pomegranate juice have also shown effectiveness.
“We found that chokeberry juice (Aronia melanocarpa), pomegranate juice (Punica granatum) and green tea (Camellia sinensis) have virucidal activity against both viruses, suggesting that mouth rinsing can reduce viral load in the mouth, thus by reducing the transmission of the virus, ”the scientists said.
Experts explained that these and other natural juices, as well as green tea, are able to weaken viruses due to the acidic environment and plant polyphenols 80%.
“For example, elderberry syrup (Sambucus nigra) has been shown to relieve symptoms in people with the flu,” the experts said.
