Research report: Mushroom is also helpful in the fight against corona, scientists claim – good results in increasing immunity and anti-viral


Mushrooms have the ability to prevent infection with viruses, including Influenza A and Herpes. The mushroom has been chosen because of its history of use for boosting immunity and having antiviral effects.

New Delhi.

Research is going on around the world for the accurate treatment of the corona Pandemic. American scientists are also continuously working in this direction.

A team of American scientists is working on the medicinal properties of mushrooms and the treatment of corona with the help of Chinese herbs. According to Gordon Sachs, a principal investigator in the Director of Research Center for Interactive Health at the University of California San Diego, the mushroom has been chosen because of its history of use for boosting immunity and having antiviral effects.

According to the report, MACH-19 (Mushroom and Chinese Herb for Covid-19) is a multi-center study working closely with the San Diego School of Medicine and UC Los Angeles, La Jolla Institute for Immunology.

A pre-clinical study conducted in the year 2019 found that mushrooms have the ability to prevent infection with viruses, including Influenza (H1N1), Influenza A (H5N1) and Herpes. Gordon Sachs says he thinks medicinal mushrooms have the ability to inhibit virus replication and wants to test this theory in a phase-2 trial against SARS-CoV-2 (SARS-CoV-2).

Gordon Sachs said that mushrooms have many benefits and they grew with us. Just as mushrooms fall prey to bacteria, viruses and other fungi, so are humans. Just as mushrooms fight these kinds of pests, we’re sure we’ll get a defense mechanism when we eat them.

Not only this, the medicinal properties of the mushroom are being assessed in the third trial on MACH-19. It was given as a capsule at the beginning of the Covid vaccination, can it increase antibodies and how the immune system responds. He said that its fourth trial launch is yet to be done.

Mushrooms can not only increase the number of antibodies, but also increase the T-cell immunity which works against the virally infected cells. Gordon Sachs pointed out that naturopaths have been using it for many centuries to treat infectious diseases. Let us inform that out of 3 trials of MACH-19, 2 trials have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Preliminary safety data for these trials is expected by the end of this year, while the data regarding its effectiveness will be ready within a year.
