Mannose binding lectins are part of the innate immune system. They are a natural defense system used for biological recognition and surveillance at the molecular level. They are one of the only anti-viral systems that can break down the signature glycoprotein shell that surrounds coronoviruses, including Ebola, Sars, Mers and the nCoV-2019 virus. These powerful defense molecules target the coronovirus early in its replication cycle, preventing viral attachment. They have been studied in plants to target the virus at the end of its infectious virus cycle, reducing prolonged complications.
Mannose binding lectins effectively stop coronoviruses from replicating and therefore keep an infection mild, preventing prolonged symptoms of illness and fatality. In humans, MBLs are found in serum MBL, as lung sufactant protein protein A (SP-A) and lung surfactant protein D (SP-D).
MBLs bind with sugars including N-acetyl-D-glucosamine, mannose, N-acetyl-mannosamine, fucose and glucose. This sugar-binding process allows the protein to interact with many different kinds of viruses, bacteria, yeasts, fungi and protozoa cloaked with such sugars. MBLs are unique because they can bind to the surface of microbes and activate the complement system in an antibody. Deficiency in MBLs occurs when there is a three single point mutation in exon 1 of the MBL-2 gene. To protect your innate MBL immune system, avoid injections, foods, and water contaminants that cause genetic mutations, DNA damage, or which have not been tested for mutagenicity.
There are two species of red algae that contain the mannose binding lectins: Scytovirin and Griffithsia. These algae are potent antiviral foods that help your body stop infections.
One of the plants I keep at home, licorice root, contains antiviral phytochemical Glycyrrhiza spp, which spurs the body's production of interferon gamma in T‐cells, helping the body effectively fight the infection.
Furthermore, science shows that plant-based agglutinines are effective at eliminating cornovirus activity. These included galactose-, N-acetylgalactosamine-, glucose-, and N-acetylglucosamine-specific plant agglutinines.
In a healthy body, coronovirus infection should not be much more burdensome than a "common cold" with symptoms such as runny nose, cough, mild to moderate upper respiratory tract illness (Can I have a side of elderberry syrup and mullein tincture?), and maybe a sore throat (pass the honey and pineapple juice please!).
Deficiency in mannose binding lectins is linked to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), among other complications and respiratory illnesses. Complication and death from any infection are the result of a weak, malnourished body, depleted of its microbiome, dehydrated, burdened by synthetic contaminants, and not utilizing its innate immune defenses. Mannose binding lectins are one potent facet of your immune system. You and/ your child may be experiencing severe illness because you are deficient in mannose binding lectins or the system is suppressed and not responding as it should, making you more susceptible to infections.
To prevent disease, you should fear the viruses LESS and build the terrain of your body more.
