Pomegranate peel – anti-COVID19, may block ACE2 receptor access to the SARS-CoV-2 virus

Pomegranate peel extract has been found helpful at preventing access of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to ACE2 receptors in a cell based study (in vitro). The pomegranate peel extract would contain mixed plant phytonutrients that might include EGCG, ellagitannins and gallotannins. The extract also inhibited “the activity of the virus 3CL protease.” (1) “In this study,… Continue reading Pomegranate peel – anti-COVID19, may block ACE2 receptor access to the SARS-CoV-2 virus

ACE2, Diarrhea, & COVID19 – it gets complicated.

The reason lung edema and diarrhea and other digestive symptoms (30) are potential symptoms of the novel coronavirus, (SARS-CoV2, also called COVID-19), and not infrequent as a way for the symptoms to start, (13); is because the virus is infecting cells by entering at ACE2 receptors. ACE2 receptors seem to have a role in cardiovascular… Continue reading ACE2, Diarrhea, & COVID19 – it gets complicated.
