Curcumin - The Powerful Anti-Viral Superfood

Curcumin is a naturally-occurring compound found in the root of the turmeric plant and is scientifically known as Curcuma Longa.

Curcumin is among the principal curcuminoids of turmeric root and is responsible for the healing properties of turmeric. The amount of curcumin present in the root of turmeric is only 3 to 5%. Therefore by consuming raw turmeric, one cannot get the required dose of curcumin daily.

As turmeric generates heat and can be consumed in limited amounts only, the alternative for getting better healing properties of turmeric is the potential medicinal extract of turmeric root itself i.e. curcumin.

The effect of curcumin on the human body is wide enough to prevent and manage more than one hundred diseases in the human body.  A single power ingredient in your food and supplements can make you stay in good health even when a lot of others are fighting a serious disease of communicable or non-communicable nature. Prevalence of viral infection or vector-borne diseases such as dengue and chikungunya can make it hard for you to stay safe if you have not been taking preventive measures beforehand. Chronic unwanted inflammation can be the reason for onset or progress of chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis in your body. To prevent diseases, to manage them and to limit their progression to dangerous complications; curcumin can come to the rescue!

Curcumin has also been found effective against Zika virus.
