Assoc. Dr. “Today, medical use of quercetin is combined with its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiplatelet, antiapoptotic, nephro, gastro, angio, cardio and chondroprotective properties. The last point reached in its use for medical purposes has been the investigation of its effectiveness in the treatment of the coronavirus pandemic, which is the deadliest disease of our age and affects our country and the whole world. Hundreds of experimental studies have been conducted in many countries on this subject, and scientists have published them in the form of articles and reviews to serve humanity. Biancatelli et al. Presented current evidence of the use of vitamin C and quercetin as an adjunct to pharmacological agents such as Remdesivir or convalescent plasma, an antiviral drug that is effectively used both in prophylaxis in high-risk populations and in the treatment of Kovid-19. “They emphasized that a safe biological molecule like Quercetin is the biological molecule that should be prioritized for use in the global health pandemic.”
Assoc. Dr. The war continued his words as follows:
“Abian and colleagues screened a drug library of 150 chemical compounds and identified the natural product quercetin as a reasonably potent inhibitor of 3CLpro (the main protease enzyme highly protected among coronaviruses), an enzyme of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. They stated that quercetin can be considered as a good candidate with optimization and development for the therapeutic treatment of Kovid-19. Liu et al. Angiotensin converting enzyme-2 (ACE 2) is the human cell entry receptor in COVID-19 disease. As is known, this protein is the protein to which the virus targeted by most of the existing vaccines bind with the S protein, that is, the most critical step in the initiation of infection and virus transmission. In this experimental study, it was aimed to determine whether various polyphenols inhibit recombinant human ACE-2 activity. Quercetin was found to be the strongest ACE-2 inhibitor among the polyphenols tested, and has been shown to inhibit ACE-2 activity at physiological concentrations. In Derosa’s review article, he emphasized the results showing that quercetin stopped the replication of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, making it the fifth best compound among 18 candidates.

VITAMIN C TREATMENT COMPLEX IS RECOMMENDED
Assoc. Dr. Savaş said, “A reputable medical school in Virginia Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) recommends quercetin and vitamin C treatment complex in the Kovid-19 management protocol in the prevention of disease, that is, prophylaxis, and more importantly, for treatment at home and in the hospital in mild cases of Kovid-19. In addition, the FLCCC Alliance was created in March 2020 by a group of highly renowned academics, with academic support from doctors from all over the world, to investigate protocols for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 in all disease stages. They published many treatment protocols and guidelines. In the guide of this important institution, quercetin and vitamin C treatment complex are recommended for prophylaxis and treatment of outpatient covid-19 cases, ”he said.
Assoc. Dr. Ümit Savaş concluded his words as follows:
“As a result, I think quercetin, which is a natural molecule, can be used safely in order not to get covid 19 disease, in outpatient treatment even if it is caught, and again very importantly, even if it is the most important protective weapon such as vaccine, in vaccinees against the possibility of mutated viruses to escape from the vaccine. I am currently using quercetin and vitamin C complex as a healthcare worker who has always voluntarily made the MRNA vaccine working in the field in the fight against Kovid-19. “
