In these unforeseen times, when we are battling against the deadly coronavirus attack, staying healthy, fit and boosting our immunity is very important. “Immunity” is the natural way in which the body protects itself from bacteria and viruses. If you or a loved one suffer from weak immunity, there are chances that they may be prone to all the viruses and bacteria out there.
To fortify our immune system, we just have to look back to the ancient wisdom of our Indian kitchen and what better spice there other than turmeric. It is loaded with natural anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties and all this is because of a remarkable ingredient present in turmeric called “curcumin.”
Curcumin is known for its immune system modulation properties, and it alters immune response to avoid hypersensitivity reaction. Bronchial problems actually result from the hypersensitive reaction of the immune system, and curcumin helps balance these reactions, thus offering fast relief.
Curcumin not only makes our immunity stronger but has many other great health benefits to fight many diseases like the ones listed below.
Cough and Cold
As the temperature changes from cold to warm, it is very common for individuals to catch a common cold or flu. Turmeric helps the body naturally cleanse the respiratory tract. It helps fight the infection, and its anti-inflammatory qualities relieve individuals from the direct impact of cold and flu.
People having bronchial problems like Sinusitis face a lot of problems due to lower immunity. Curcumin can help fight such problems and build up the immunity so that there should not be such kind of respiration problems.
Upper Respiratory Tract Problems
Symptoms of upper respiratory tract problems include bronchial asthma, congestion of nose and airway due to inflammation, cough, cold and occasionally, shortness of breath, affecting children, adults, and elderly population. Inflammation constricts the airways and makes it difficult to breathe. This is often related to an exaggerated response by the immune system that leads to chronic inflammation and damage to lung tissue by free radicals. Curcumin inhibits inflammation, relieves congestion and pain and thus improves your breathing.
Curcumin helps in boosting up the immunity and helps to fight against viral replication of a disease which may have an incubation period ranging from 1 or 2 days to years.
Curcumin suppresses various inflammatory molecules that are responsible for the causes of the damage caused by viruses. It helps to reduce symptoms and provides relief.
Inhibit Viral Replication
Exhibits all the antiviral properties by reducing the replication of the virus. Curcumin hence reduces the viral load.
