Dandelion leaf extract blocks spike protein binding to ACE2 cell surface

Produced sars-cov-2 spike proteins can be stopped by a common “weed”, which is removed from lawns every year. A German university study found that a common dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) can block the binding of spike proteins to ACE2 receptors in human lung and kidney cells. The water-based dandelion extract taken from the dried leaves of the plant was effective against spike protein D614 and a number of its mutational strains: including D614G, N501Y, K417N and E484K.

Dandelion extract blocks SARS CoV-2 spike proteins and its variants.

Scientists used high molecular weight compounds taken from the water-based dandelion extract and tested it in kidney cells: HEK293-hACE2 and A549-hACE2-TMPRSS2. Dandelion blocked the “protein to protein” interactions between the S1 spike protein subunit and the human receptors of ACE2 cells. This effect was the same against spike protein mutations from the predominant variants in circulation: including the British (B.1.1.7), South African (B.1.351) and Brazilian (P.1) variants.

Dandelion extract stopped the binding of pseudotype particles of SARS-CoV-2 lentivir to lung cells and stopped an inflammatory process called interleukin-6 secretion. Since the study was conducted in vitro, further clinical studies are needed to understand how dandelion extract is absorbed and used in the biological systems of the human body.

As vaccines weaken herd immunity, natural herbs promise real prevention and strong defenses.

Although tens of billions of public money has been poured into the development of experimental vaccines and propaganda campaigns, the world is still struggling with new respiratory infections. Sars-CoV-2 is under pressure to mute into different variants. There is no evidence to suggest that the coronavirus could be eradicated on Earth, and therefore adaptation is necessary for humans in the future.

Dandelion extract is one of many herbs that help to a healthy immune system. It is only right that dandelion extract can prevent infections by blocking a particular channel to which spike proteins attach and cause viral replication.

Other natural compounds have been studied using shortened molecular studies. Nobiletine is a flavonoid isolated from citrus peels. Neohesperidine, a derivative of hesperetin, is a flavanone glycoside that is also found in citrus fruits. Glycyrrhizin is a molecular compound extracted from the root of licorice. All three of these natural substances also block spike proteins’ binding tendency to ACE2 receptors. Hydroalcoholic pomegranate extract blocks spike protein on the ACE2 receptor with 74% efficiency. When its main ingredients were tested separately, punicalagin was 64% effective and ellagic acid was 36% effective.

These natural compounds (along with dandelion extract) can be easily mass produced, combined and deployed as a preventive drug for all future spike protein variants. These herbs are generally considered safe, and no cases of overdose are known from the consumption of dandelion leaf extract. According to the European Phytotherapy Scientific Cooperative, the recommended dose of dandelion leaf is 4 to 10 grams soaked in hot water up to three times a day.

The authors of the study warn that relying on vaccines is risky and dangerous not only for individual health, but also for herd immunity. The vaccine relies only on the intensification of antibodies and turns out to be a high-risk intervention with short-term results. Injuries are reported after vaccination, repeated infections are common, as the vaccine forces the original modified spike protein to mutation.

The authors conclude: “Factors such as low toxicity in humans and effective binding attenuation in the five relevant spike protein mutations to the human cell receptor ACE2 are, as already mentioned: in vitro, thus encouraging a deeper analysis of SARS-CoV-2 prevention and now require further confirmatory clinical evidence.”
