We have been talking for a long time about the benefits of the E4 Diet for your immune system and staying healthy. For people with diabetes, over 65 and those most vulnerable to respiratory infections and the coronavirus, this is especially important!
Nitric Oxide is produced when you eat and chew greens! It helps with endothelial function and improving the flexibility of artery walls. It turns out that research studies were done on nitric oxide and the SARS CoV 1 virus, which is similar to the new coronavirus SARS COV 2.
While the studies were done in-vitro, the bottom line is that eating and chewing dark green leafy greens could help your body not only boost its immune defenses in general but also with this virus in particular!
The researchers summary findings are noted below:
We found that an organic NO donor, S-nitroso-N-acetylpenicillamine, significantly inhibited the replication cycle of SARS CoV in a concentration-dependent manner. We also show here that NO inhibits viral protein and RNA synthesis. Furthermore, we demonstrate that NO generated by inducible nitric oxide synthase, an enzyme that produces NO, inhibits the SARS CoV replication cycle.
