A group of scientists from the Institute of Virology at the University Hospital of Essen (Germany) has determined that sage and perilla teas help fight the coronavirus.
During the study, virologists incubated coronavirus-infected cells with herbal teas from sage, perilla and coriander. When preparing them, they brought drinks to a boil, and then insisted for two hours at a water temperature of 60 degrees.
Scientists have concluded that even a short-term intake of Perilla and Sage is sufficient to significantly suppress the reproduction of the coronavirus. At the same time, it was possible to establish that the therapeutic effect is achieved in the drink not due to the general antiviral effect. The researchers concluded that such teas can presumably be used to prevent coronavirus infection.
Earlier, German scientists discovered a natural product that kills up to 97 percent of the coronavirus in the body. According to experts, chokeberry juice most effectively suppresses the activity of the virus in the human body. They also believe that pomegranate juice can kill up to 80 percent of the coronavirus pathogens. The rest of natural juices and green tea can also weaken the disease, since they have an acidic environment and plant polyphenols that negatively affect the virus.
