Originally Posted on Heal Naturally. The turmeric compound curcumin has been found to inhibit a number of significant viruses, including zika virus, hepatitis, herpes, chikungunya virus, influenza-A, HIV and HPV. Turmeric has been used as a medicinal food for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. I have discussed its ability to slow cancer growth, help prevent Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, help resolve Lichen Panus, and reduce type-2 diabetes. More recently, research has confirmed that the central medicinal compound in turmeric – curcumin – blocks the growth of the zika virus, hepatitis, herpes, chikungunya virus, influenza-A, HIV and HPV. These are all serious viruses. Collectively, they affect hundreds of millions of people around the world. Some of these viruses are transmitted by mosquitoes. For example, zika and the chikungunya viruses are transmitted by the Aedes species of mosquito.  Last year, researchers found that zika is linked with birth defects such as microcephaly. Zika virus has recently spread from South and Central America into Southern states in the U.S., including Texas and Florida. The chikungunya virus is also spreading in South and Central America.

Championed by sports and fitness enthusiasts for its anti-inflammatory properties, stories abound of athletes making the switch from post-workout pain-relievers to daily curcumin supplementation—allowing them to avoid countless negative side effects of NSAIDs. Curcumin, the main active ingredient in turmeric, is responsible for its bold, yellow hue. A powerful antioxidant, curcumin is one of several compounds called curcuminoids that possess potent medicinal properties. These biologically active micronutrients do more than ward-off inflammation; they have been studied for their role in the prevention of degenerative diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and dementia. When it comes to supplementation, curcumin is not without its detractors. Taken in isolation, curcumin has reduced bioavailability and becomes destabilized.[1] Taken as a whole-food in either fresh turmeric root or ground spice, the full-range of beneficial properties of this miracle plant are conveyed.
