Boost your immunity with turmeric

Health is the biggest wealth in everyone’s life, even more so during the present unforeseen times when we are grappling with the deadly Coronavirus attack.

“Immunity” is the body’s natural defence against disease-causing bacteria and virus which can considerably reduce the odds of getting sick. It is only due to the weak immunity that people are getting affected with the widespread coronavirus and other such pandemics.

So, to fortify our immune system, we should look into the ancient wisdom of our Indian kitchen and what a better way than to fall back to good-old turmeric, which is loaded with anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties due to the presence of curcumin. Add it to your food while cooking, temper your favourite curry with it or simply add a dash to make yourself a glorious golden milk.

“Curcumin has known immune system modulation properties and it alters immune response so as to avoid hypersensitivity reaction. Bronchial problems actually result from the hypersensitive reaction of the immune system and Curcumin helps balance these reactions – proves to be a fast relief,” explains Dr Saurabh Arora, inventor of SNEC30, Arbro Pharmaceuticals.
