Potential ‘Underwater’ Breakthrough for COVID?!
Just when you think we’ve perhaps turned a corner with the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems like the virus continues to punch back.
Case in point? Just look at what’s happening right now with the Omicron variant!
And while it seems inevitable that the coronavirus is going to make for a rough start to 2022, I’m here today to share a glimmer of promising news.
Scientists in Israel have unlocked a potential ‘underwater’ breakthrough that could eventually be a valuable weapon in the fight against COVID-19.
Here’s what they found.
Researchers at Tel Aviv University have revealed that a substance in edible marine algae – aka SEAWEED – has the capability to block COVID-19 from infecting cells.
The substance is called ulvan, and is found is many versions of seaweed extract.
Ulvan is extracted from marine algae called Ulva, an edible ‘sea lettuce’ common in places like Japan, New Zealand and Hawaii.

This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
Are we literally FEEDING cancer cells by putting this one food on our dinner plates?
This is important. THIS one food could be growing cancer cells.
And here’s where it gets interesting… as soon as we STOP eating it, the opposite happens: cancer cells STARVE to death — and die out by the thousands.
Skeptical? See the evidence here.
But studies found that ulvan can effectively prevent viruses from killing plants… and it can even block infection from some human viruses as well… which prompted researchers to begin look at it and how it could work against COVID.
Early research has found that in the presence of ulvan, COVID-19 could not infect cells. Other algae extracts did NOT show the same ability to block out a coronavirus infection.
It should be noted that research around ulvan is still in its preliminary stages, as researchers hope to use this latest finding as a spring board for a formula that works in humans and can help stop new COVID variants from spreading.
But, the fact that a natural (and affordable) extract shows the potential to fight back against COVID-19 is promising!
In the meantime, it’s important to continue to follow basic protocols like washing hands and wearing masks (when applicable) to keep yourself safe from COVID-19 – even if you’re fully vaccinated.
You can also find ulvan at many health food stores or vitamin retailers – usually called ‘sea lettuce’ on its product label. If you’re thinking of supplementing with this seaweed extract (for whatever reason), just be sure to talk to your doctor first, and to only take the dosage listed on the product label.
