Undoubtedly, there is a natural component in our body that works by decreasing the pathogenesis of Covid-19 and other viruses.
This molecule is in greater concentration or with greater activity in children and young people, with aging its activity decreases.
In the assumption that this virus, like many, is seasonal, with a predictable decrease in its pathogenicity in summer, we must assume that there is a component that increases its concentration in our body in summer.
Looking for what is that possible molecule that our body synthesizes, our IA have found a candidate with a high percentage of possibilities: the osmolyte : betaine, (trimethylglycine TMG).
Betaine is characterized by having 3 methyl groups.
The methylation capacity of our cells decreases proportionally with age.
In summer our concentration of Betaine increases, it acts protecting our cells from thermal stress and dehydration, in fact betaine is widely used in feeding chickens and pigs in high temperature situations.
There are many studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of betaine in improving different viral processes.
There is a weakness in the physiology of this Covid-19 virus: methylation.
