Potential treatment - theoretical effect
Taxifolin is a natural flavonoid from the polyphenols class. It can be found in various conifers, fruit, vegetables, wine, tea and cocoa. It is a potential chemoprotective agent. Taxifolin showed promising pharmacological activities in the management of inflammation, tumors, microbial infections, oxidative stress, cardiovascular, and liver disorders.
Regarding SARS-CoV-2, our AIM tool found the data that taxifolin could help against SARS-CoV-2 by inhibiting its protease.
