Despite its unassuming appearance, dandelion has been shown to block protein to protein interaction between ACE2receptors and the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. Combined with its anti-platelet action, dandelion is capable of preventing miscarriages and menstrual cycle disturbances, according to research.
During pregnancy, a woman’s body releases syncytins, which are utilized in the formation of the placenta and the embryo’s implantation within the uterus. Due to the similarity between syncitins and the SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins, shot induced antibody responses may trigger allergic, cytotoxic and/or autoimmune responses, resulting in severe placental dysfunction, and miscarriage.
Although pregnant women should always consult their health providers for specific guidance, dandelion has been safely used by midwives for hundreds of years. The American Pregnancy Association also considers dandelion as one of the best foods for pregnancy due its iron rich content. At a time where so many women are tragically experiencing COVID injection related miscarriages, the benefits of this common herb just may protect women and their babies throughout pregnancy.
