ABSTRACT:
The whole world is suffering from the corona virus, a global pandemic, which has captured world attention to the immune system. As the world scrambles to find a cure for Covid-19, health experts have suggested boosting the body’s immunity. Immune system defense against bacteria, virus and other organisms may help minimize the effects and hasten the recovery from the disease. Covid-19 still has a troublingly high mortality rate. A person with a strong immune system and good body health should be able to recover from severe acute respiratory syndrome corona virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infections without any complications because the immune system produced antibodies. Immunity will be “our savior” against the virus. The idea is that if you don’t have a potent weapon to combat the enemy, a strong and effective shield is the best bet to protect yourself. There are still millions of people in the world at risk due to old age, weak immune system and pre-existing medical issue. Turmeric play a major role to boost the immune system and a potent immunomodulatory agent that can help the population to prevent the covid-19 infection.
