The turmeric compound curcumin was found to effectively suppress a large number of viruses, recent studies showed. The compound was previously known to defer cancer growth, resolve Lichen Panus, reduce type-2 diabetes and prevent Alzheimer’s disease and dementia onset. However, a new article published in GreenMedInfo.com listed several other studies indicating that the compound was able to inhibit the growth of a plethora of viruses including zika virus, hepatitis, herpes, chikungunya virus, influenza-A, HIV and HPV.

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. There are no vaccines for either zika or chikungunya viruses. There are also no real treatments either.
