The coronavirus pandemic has pushed researchers toward alternative studies to find treatments to end the pandemic and return to normalcy.
On this occasion, Răzvan Dumitrescu
drew attention to a plant with miraculous powers and which has been awarded abroad: sweet wormwood.
“It’s about sweet wormwood. A Chinese researcher has been awarded for discovering an antiviral treatment based on sweet wormwood. We have a plant similar to the one in China. We are starting to find out that there are also natural remedies that could help in COVID-19 ″, said Răzvan Dumitrescu.
Artemisia Annua or Sweet Wormwood could help treat COVID-19. This is the basis of a malaria drug developed by a researcher
from China, awarded the Nobel Prize for this discovery.
The plant is also studied by the specialists of the Buzău Vegetable Research Station, according to antena3.ro
Several varieties of wormwood are being studied at the experimental resort in Buzau, in the laboratory led by researcher Costel Vînătoru. Sweet wormwood attracts more attention, because the variety has been nominated by several medical institutes as having strong healing effects.
In Romania, wormwood is found in spontaneous flora, our plant being found in hard and arid areas. That is why the Buzau researcher says that it is necessary
studied in many ways, it has, in addition to interesting benefits in the medical field, the property of resisting drought.
Researchers at the Center for Pharmaceutical Biology in Heidelberg, Germany, published a study in 2008 in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases concluding that artemisinin has strong anti-viral activity against: cytomegalovirus and other members of the Herpesviridae family (eg, herpes simplex virus type 1 and Epstein-Barr virus), liver virus B, liver virus C. Artemisinin also stops the replication of liver viruses B and C.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has acknowledged that certain traditional medicines and remedies “can alleviate the symptoms” of coronavirus. However, he recalled that “there is no evidence that these substances can prevent or cure the disease.”
Researcher Costel Vânătoru, a horticultural specialist, claims that there is a lot of truth in the opinions of those who believe in the properties of sweet wormwood, scientifically called Artemisia annua.
“There are opinions of some specialists in the field that show that sweet wormwood, Artemisia annua, helps a lot in this case. In the past, in our country, it was widely used for soap
From home. The people knew then how valuable it was and we only do now to rediscover what was known very well in the past “, says the researcher Costel Vânătoru.
