We can take as a single example of natural anti-viral attributes, the case of the flavonoid Rutin - found in buckwheat, olives, asparagus and plums. This food chemical, also called Rutoside, was for a few decades known as 'Vitamin P' due to its many beneficial properties.
Not only is it a powerful Anti-Inflammatory, Antioxidant and Bactericidal Agent, but Rutin has for many years been investigated widely in regards to its anti-viral properties. In fact, not only have dozens of researchers testified to the anti-viral effects of Rutin in relation to viruses as diverse as Influenza, Hepatitis C and Dengue, but specific evidence has been forthcoming over the past half year of Rutin's specific activities against SARS-CoV-2 - the virus that brings about COVID-19.
For instance, in simulated molecular docking experiments, it was determined that Rutin is a potent inhibitor of SARS-CoV-2 (through interacting with an enzyme that is beneficial to that virus), and it has in fact been noted that out of all the compounds studied: "Rutin (a natural compound) has the highest inhibitor efficiency among the 33 molecules" [Journal of Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics; 2020]. These findings are significant - nor are they isolated.
The study above and a multitude of others have observed that natural molecules can prove to possess anti-viral qualities that are equal or greater than pharmaceutical anti-virals. Continuing with our brief focus on Rutin, the highly respected peer-reviewed journal 'Future Virology' already featured an article in June of 2020 which concluded that: "Rutin may influence viral functional protein assembly and host inflammatory suppression" - specifically relating to its action against the virus which causes COVID-19.
With findings in favor of the anti-viral activities of Rutin against SARS-CoV-2 being published equally in America and Europe - as against the rest of the world - it is clear that it is not just those nations who favor Traditional Medicine that are being open-minded about objectively appraising the potential of natural anti-viral compounds. However, in closing, it will add balance to this post if we may quote from one of the most respected Chinese research periodicals of our day - 'Acta Pharmaceutica Sinica B' - where it is asserted (after speaking about a whole group of natural chemicals, including Rutin) that: "herbal medicines containing these compounds as major components might be meaningful for the treatment of SARS-CoV-2 infections".
Whether people will listen more to the results of Science as opposed to the rumors of the media, it is hard to tell, but about one thing there can be little doubt: new research is providing abundant evidence that natural anti-viral compounds deserve as much attention and recognition as synthetic ones, especially as their safety and lack of toxicity are in most cases already a well-established reality.

IN SPITE OF the discovery of numerous vaccines effective against SARS-CoV-2 - as well as effective antiviral treatments - there is no room to rest in the battle against COVID-19 and the many other viral illnesses we face on this planet. As science has already proven that good nutritional status is able to increase vaccine effectiveness and decrease side effects, it is essential that this is explored in more depth as the implications are far-reaching. If eating a diet with the correct balance of specific nutrients and other phytochemicals can make vaccines more effective, and if it is really true - as the evidence suggests - that numerous dietary ingredients do have direct anti-viral effects that can protect us against viruses and viral illnesses, then this is truly a domain where Science must continue to advance our understanding.

'AVD' is a 3-Phase Research Project launched by The Academy of the Third Millennium (A3M). Phase 1 of this scientific inquiry is now complete and a summary of the findings are presented in the volume 'AVD: The Anti-Viral Diet' (2020/2021) available from this site. Information about the progress and purpose of Phases 2 and 3 of this ongoing A3M research program will be shared at the NEWS page on this website.
