A recent study assessed the structural ability of a host of flavonoids to inhibit this coronavirus by acting on the main protease 3CLpro.

Researchers found that many flavonoid compounds have similar molecular structures and biological actions as Nelfinavir, an antiviral drug with promise as a pharmacologic therapy for COVID-19.

The researchers suggest that kaempferol, quercetin, luteolin-7-glucoside, demethoxycurcumin, naringenin, apigenine-7-glucoside, oleuropein, curcumin, catechin, and epicatechin-gallate in medicinal plants may inhibit 3CLpro (structure of the Corona virus).

By consuming these medicinal plants you can fight the virus!
