The researchers found that some natural alkaloids, especially piperine found in black pepper, block the ability of COVID-19 to infect cells. They inform about it "Knowledge" with reference to the press service of the Institute of Cytology of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
"The most effective compound, piperine, is contained in black pepper," said Olga Ostroumova, chief researcher at the Institute of Cytology of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Such results were shown by a study by scientists from the Institute of Cytology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Pasteur Institute. The research results are published in the journal Biomedicines.
Olga Ostroumová noted that piperine has been known for a long time and is used in bioactive supplements for various medical purposes.
According to her, St. Petersburg scientists are currently investigating substances that can block the fusion of the lipid membranes of human cells and coronavirus. The researchers found that piperine altered the properties of the viral lipid envelope. As a result, the virus does not penetrate the cells, stopping it from spreading.
Piperine may become the basis for the development of effective dietary supplements for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.
Earlier, Margarita Koroleva, a doctor of personalized medicine, a professor of FMBA of Russia, a doctor of medical sciences, spoke about the importance of fats in the human diet against the background of the coronavirus pandemic.
"The faultless condition of the cell membrane, the lipid mantle of every cell, is a good defense against the penetration of the virus. The alveolar apparatus of the lung tissue is made up of 90% lipids, which ensures the quality of respiratory function. Everyone knows that polyunsaturated fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory effect, "Koroleva explained in an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
Among the healthy foods, the expert named lard, ghee oil, but also nuts, fish and seeds. According to her, a small piece of bacon, for example, will help maintain an alkaline environment in the body, in which bacteria and viruses lose activity and die (they multiply in an acidic environment).
