In the midst of a pandemic, some might be tempted to rely on plants to protect themselves from the coronavirus. Bad idea, according to the National Health Security Agency. ANSES warns against food supplements made from plants. Some have inflammatory properties that can act like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and thus weaken the body’s natural defenses.

“In view of the epidemic evolution of Covid-19, ANSES has self-entered the risks linked to the consumption of food supplements containing plants which may interfere with the immune and inflammatory response, useful for fighting infection by SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. “

“Counterproductive” Effects

The Agency has identified several plants “with counterproductive effects in defense against the coronavirus”. They are willow, birch, poplar, queen of the meadows, goldenrod, polygalas, harpagophytum, echinacea, turmeric, cat’s claw as well as “plants of the genera Boswellia and Commiphora (known for their gum-oleoresins called respectively “incense” and “myrrh”) “, specifies ANSES.

The Health Security Agency recommends stopping food supplements as soon as Covid symptoms appear and consulting your doctor in case of chronic inflammatory pathologies.
