I wanted to discuss some different types of things that you could be doing. Again, I’m trying to give you practical information that you can apply in your day to day life. And so if we ask, I said earlier that one of the things that this drug hydroxycholroquine does is it disrupts viral hijacking. How does it disrupt viral hijacking? So one of the ways that it’s suspected that this drug blocks viral hijacking, is that it is known as a zinc ionophore. That means that this drug binds to zinc.

So we’ll just use hydroxychloroquine as our example, it binds to the zinc and it pushes it into the cell. And then once it pushes it into the cell, it can push it into the cellular machinery, the golgi apparatus, the, the other places in the cell like mitochondria, et cetera, can push that zinc into those compartments in the cell where DNA and RNA replication can occur, which is where generally, the virus likes to get to that component so that it can take over. And so as an ionophore pulls zinc into the cell. So generally speaking, zinc, there are receptors on the surface of the cell and receptors on the surface of the organelles in the cell that are zinc dependent. So the zinc passes through these receptors and, and it’s like a, a door that opens and closes. And so, what hydroxychloroquine does is it binds and it pulls it through into the cell and concentrates it into those areas of the cell.

So knowing that these medicines can do that, I want to talk a little bit about zinc tonight. Id like to show you that zinc has a role as an antiviral and all the different things that it has the capacity to do. In this video you can see here in abundance of evidence has accumulated over the past 50 years to demonstrate the antiviral activity of zinc against the variety of viruses and via numerous mechanisms. Now this was just recently published. This was a review of the literature. This was just published in 2019 – just a few months ago. I want to show you where zinc plays a role in inhibiting viral replication.
