Study Suggests Turmeric Could Potentially Neutralize Lethal Viral Infections


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/28/2015 -- Today, deadly viruses such as Ebola are threatening the lives of many people around the world. This threat costs hundreds of millions of dollars in the attempt of experts to develop effective vaccines. However, could it be possible that the best solution for these viruses can be found right in many household's spice racks?

One study suggests that turmeric could potentially neutralize lethal viral infections. Turmeric is a medicinal spice that has been used for thousands of years as a natural remedy for a range of conditions. It is also a popular subject of many scientific studies and clinical trials that aim at finding the best medicines for certain types of diseases.

"It is widely believed that the powerful therapeutic effects of turmeric come from its polyphenol called curcumin," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.

According to the recent study featured in the In Vivo journal, turmeric, which is one of the most prized spices in the world, could be an effective solution for Ebola and other deadly viruses. Ebola is a life-threatening viral infection, and unfortunately, there has not been any conventional treatment known as its cure.

The curcumin in turmeric contains therapeutic substances with anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. It is even believed to be one of the most widely researched substances worldwide.

With curcumin alone, consumers can check out more than 1540 studies on alone. Its therapeutic effects are believed to extend to more than 600 health conditions. Recently, curcumin has been found to have the potential ability to fight infections caused by parasites, viruses, and bacteria.

According to the study, there is an exceptionally huge overproduction of cytokines by the immune system called cytokine storm. This storm often starts during the terminal stage of Ebola. The findings of the study reveal that curcumin could block the cytokine release, particularly the key pro-inflammatory cytokines, interleukin-6, interleukin-1, and tumor necrosis factor-a.

The researchers believe that the ability of curcumin to suppress the cytokine release is a clinical improvement, especially that cytokine storm plays a major role in mortality. They concluded that the effects of curcumin should be investigated among individuals who suffer from Ebola and cytokine storm.

Curcumin has a long history of widespread availability, affordability, efficacy, and safe usage. It has been found to inhibit viruses such as Hepatitis C virus. Individuals who want to take advantage of the therapeutic benefits offered by curcumin may consume it through supplementation. The best curcumin supplements contain a bioavailability enhancing ingredient called BioPerine, which is a black black pepper extract (
