Fight Flu with Curcumall
Curcumin possesses antiviral properties that have a direct effect on influenza infections, or their prevention. According to a study published in a 2009, curcumin can reduce viral replication by over 90 percent in laboratory cells infected with influenza varieties. Curcumin decreased viral replication in infected cells, but also seemed to protect other cells from becoming infected. The researchers suggest that curcumin-rich turmeric is a viable candidate for treating influenza naturally, as it can interfere with the replication process in viruses and other microbes.
The extensive antiviral effects of curcumin against different viral pathogens nominate it as an effective natural antiviral drug.
Curcumall®, the concentrated liquid extract of turmeric/curcumin can be taken preventively or during an influenza infection. As a preventive health supplement, Curcumall® is taken 1-2 times daily—a teaspoon in a glass of water taken on an empty stomach. During an influenza infection, a teaspoon of Curcumall® can be mixed in a cup of warm milk and taken three times daily.
Curcumall® can also be used in cooking. It can be added for flavor and spice in different dishes (for cooking ideas see “Cooking with Curcumall®” at www.curcumall.com)
