On a serious note! This find last evening will now be here to open eyes about one of the most famous weeds you may never ever spray with Round Up or any other brand of herbicide!
Dandelion salads (hint: small leaves taste somewhat less bitter) are now on your shopping list of free health foods surrounding your homes! And many other freebies for good health grow deep in the woods near you!
All parts of the plant are edible minus it's white seed ball: flower stems, yellow flowers (fried, mimic the flavor of morels) the roots and leaves! There is more vitamin C in this dreaded weed than found in raw spinach!
Why do we find dandelions growing so close to homes? Handy, eh?
Now, seriously, get this!

RESEARCH: Dandelion leaf extract blocks spike proteins from binding to the ACE2 cell surface receptor!
BY L.J. DEVON // 2021-06-28
The engineered spike proteins from SARS-CoV-2 can be STOPPED by a common “weed” that is exterminated from lawns every year. A German university study found that the common dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) can block spike proteins from binding to the ACE2 cell surface receptors in human lung and kidney cells. The water-based dandelion extract, taken from the plant’s dried leaves, was effective against spike protein D614 and a host of mutant strains, including D614G, N501Y, K417N and E484K.
Dandelion extract blocks SARS CoV-2 spike proteins and their variants!
The researchers used high molecular weight compounds taken from a water-based dandelion extract and put them to the test in human HEK293-hACE2 kidney and A549-hACE2-TMPRSS2 lung cells. The dandelion blocked the protein-to-protein interactions between the S1 sub unit of the spike protein and the human ACE2 cell surface receptor.
This effect was also true against the spike protein mutations from the predominant variants in circulation, including the United Kingdom (B.1.1.7), South African (B.1.351) and Brazilian (P.1) variant. The dandelion extract stopped SARS-CoV-2 spike pseudotyped lentivirus particles from attaching to lung cells and stopped an inflammatory process called interleukin-6 secretion. Because the study was conducted in vitro, further clinical studies are needed to understand how the dandelion extract is absorbed and utilized in biological systems of the human body.
As vaccines weaken herd immunity, natural herbs promise true prevention, more substantial immunity.
Even though tens of billions of public funds have been poured into experimental vaccine development and propaganda campaigns, the world continues to struggle with new respiratory infections, as SARS-CoV-2 is pressured to mutate into different variants. There is no evidence to suggest that corona viruses can be eradicated from the Earth, so human adaptation will be essential going forward.
Dandelion extract is one of many herbs that will assist in a healthy immune response. Better yet, dandelion extract could prove to prevent infections altogether, by blocking the precise channel by which the spike proteins attach and cause viral replication. Other natural compounds have been investigated using molecular docking studies. Nobiletin is a flavonoid isolated from citrus peels. Neohesperidin, a derivative of hesperetin, is a flavanone glycoside also found in citrus fruits.
