Research Investigates Ebola-Fighting Effects Of Turmeric

26 Jan

Orlando, FL — January, 2016 — Ebola is otherwise known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever. This rare and fatal disease is caused by an infection coming from Ebola virus species. There are medications, but there are also certain natural ingredients, such as turmeric, that are believed to be helpful for the condition.

Research investigates the Ebola-fighting effects of turmeric. Ebola is one of the little-misunderstood ailments in the world. It can cause diseases in primates such as chimpanzees, gorillas, and monkeys as well as in humans.

There are four Ebola virus species believed to cause disease in humans, and they are: the Ebola virus, Sudan virus, Tai Forest virus, and Bundibugyo virus. There is also a fifth species called Reston virus, which affects non-human primates.

Researchers believe that Ebola is animal-borne, and originates from bats. Direct contact with blood or body fluids, objects, or semen from an infected person can spread the disease.

The global race for the medication or vaccine for Ebola is on, and it costs hundreds of millions of dollars of investment. Not many people realize that the solution for this life-threatening disease could just be found in the spice racks.

Turmeric is one of the oldest and most popular spices believed to offer a myriad of health benefits. This spice is used as a kitchen ingredient due to its ability to add flavor and taste to food and beverages. However, over the years, it is becoming more and more popular as a natural remedy for a range of conditions.

In Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine, turmeric has been one of the widely used spices for thousands of years. Today, it is internationally available not just in a powder form, but also as a supplement.
“Curcumin supplements can be purchased at local health stores or online,” said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
Turmeric contains curcumin, which is a phytochemical believed to be extremely therapeutic. Curcumin has healing ingredients that are thought to be responsible for its healing benefits. Some of the therapeutic substances it contains are antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties.

The In Vivo journal featured a new study called “Curcumin Suppression of Cytokine Release and Cytokine Storm. A Potential Therapy for Patients with Ebola and Other Severe Viral Infections.” This study as demonstrated an intriguing possibility that turmeric, which is one of the world’s most prized spices, could be an effective treatment for deadly diseases such as Ebola.

Curcumin supplements with BioPerine are extremely popular nowadays. BioPerine is a black pepper extract believed to help increase the delivery of curcumin nutrients inside the body (
