The age-old spice turmeric has been used for centuries to reduce inflammation, but now can it help prevent COVID-19.

A recent study found turmeric contains anti-viral properties, which makes it a "candidate" in the fight to find a cure or antidote for the novel coronavirus.

According to the study published in the Journal of General Virology, turmeric (curcumin) can prevent transmissible infection.

The research team found a higher concentration of turmeric to reduce number of virus particles in cell culture, reported by the Times of India. It can kill the virus by directly killing it before it infects the cell, and by altering the metabolism of the cell to prevent the virus from entering the body.

I have been taking turmeric for years (daily) no flu and no COVID-19, knock on wood!
