Green tea compounds block key enzyme that allows coronavirus to replicate – study – NaturalNews.com

A study published in the journal Frontiers in Plant Science shows that chemical compounds in green tea and other plant-based foods can block the activity of a key enzyme in the replication of SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19.Researchers at North Carolina State University (NC State) found that many polyphenols in these foods are able to inhibit the function of “main protease” (Mpro) by directly binding to it. Without the activity of this enzyme, SARS-CoV-2 cannot remain viable for long.
