Covid: The 'potent weapon' to protect and treat the viral infection – new study

Date:


The researchers found that low micromolar concentrations of the chemical were able to reduce the replication of six strains of SARS-CoV-2 by 50 percent.

What’s more, their findings were also positive when it came to the Omicron variant.

The team found that using sulforaphane resulted in a “significant” decrease in both the viral load, or amount of virus:

  • In the lungs (17 percent decrease)
  • Upper respiratory tract (nine percent decrease)
  • The amount of lung injury (29 percent decrease).

Plus, the chemical also saw a drop in inflammation in the lungs, while protecting the cells from a hyperactive immune response which seems to be one of the key factors that has caused many to die from coronavirus.
