Cold & Flu

A new study has shown that curcumin may help with cold and flu symptoms. The findings come from researchers at the University of California Davis, who presented their results at the American College of Nutrition’s Annual Meeting in Orlando on March 12, 2021.

Combined with zinc lozenges, the compound has been shown to reduce symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, and sore throat within 24 hours. “Curcumin may help with the symptoms of colds and flu because it can be used to treat inflammation,” said Dr. Wendy Haying Dai in a statement issued by UC Davis Health System.
