The corona is a new virus which our bodies have no prior experience of dealing with. So, when it enters our body, our immune system gets hyperactive and triggers an inflammatory response called cytokine storm. This response can be self-damaging and, interestingly, curcumin, present in turmeric, is highly beneficial in treating this storm. Through some new farming methods developed recently, turmeric can retain more curcumin content compared to the traditional processing methods. These alternative methods also help farmers in using turmeric leaves for cooking, which reduces their wastage. Further, they are eco-friendly and are also raising the income of turmeric farmers.
