Curry, Curcumin & Coronavirus

Curry, Curcumin & Coronavirus

Curcumin, a substance found in Turmeric, a spice used in curry, has been studied for years for its antiviral properties. It's not yet been studied for the Coronavirus, but consider this:

COVID deaths in India = 156,000
COVID deaths in the US = 498,000

And this difference is even more dramatic when you consider the population of India is about 4X that of the US. The average Indian consumes about 100 - 200 mg of Curcumin each day.

But you don't need to eat curry every day, because Amazon carries Curcumin pills. I've been taking a pill a day for a while.

Here's a review of Curcumin published by the NIH back in 2014.
