First, it was Vitamin D, then magnesium, then Ivermectin. Now Covid chewing gum to stop the spread of Covid….? What other stranger things can be. Many people would think that this is just another gimmick, a joke per se. But the research from the University of Pennsylvania shows significant signs of success.
This gum is an ordinary gum that you chew. It has a cinnamon-flavored taste. There is no different consistency to it when you chew it. The gum is no different from any other gum you buy in a store except for adding the protein to stop Covid. The gum is infused with a protein that traps and destroys the Coronavirus. As a result, scientist Henry Daniel from the University of Pennsylvania said that they could kill 95% Covid-19. Since saliva is the primary way of Covid transmission, chewing gum works on the saliva. So, if you cough, sneeze, or spit particles into the air from your nose or mouth, you are less likely to spread Covid because the gum decreases the viral load. The protein also blocks the entry of the virus into the cells of your lungs and heart.
Could a cinnamon-flavored gum specially treated with a protein stop the spread of Covid-19?
The answer is yes. Because before Covid, the gum was used to treat heart failure and hypertension. The gum successfully affected the ACE2 receptors associated with heart disease. And, it is successful in treating Covid because Covid attacks the same angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptors that line the cell walls of the lungs, heart, and liver. So, using the gum and adding the protein to treat ACE2 is way ahead of the game.
The great thing is, it is safe to chew, not like taking a pill or medicine that can create side effects. The gum, however, is not a cure-all to Coronavirus. Instead, it can be a highly preventative therapy or treatment to slow the transmission in your body as well as to people. The scientist said that the gum seemed effective for about five hours.
The University of Penn scientists performed the third round of testing and saw the saliva samples from COVID-19 patients dropped to nearly undetectable levels. Covid gum is still in the early stages but moving forward with success. The Penn researchers said they passed the first-round process with the FDA. As a result, they are trying to be granted emergency use to begin testing on people. However, there is no time committed to when this will be made public.
The protein is simple and easy to make. They produced the protein by infusing and growing lettuce, so it is simple and cheap to grow and create. As a result, it cost much less than masks and other medicines. And, it can be used by countries where vaccines are not available or for people who are unsure about taking the vaccinations.
The gum could be a godsend to irradicate COVID-19 and end this pandemic. Let’s hope.
