CBD, Curcumin, and Vit C can strengthen the immune system.
Can CBD, Vitamin C, and Curcumin ( the medical property of Turmeric) help our body defend against viral infections?
What is a viral infection? Viruses are microscopic organisms that need a host to survive so they spread by attaching to cells and causing a viral infection on the cells they attacked. For example, Influenza viruses attack cells of the nose, throat, and respiratory system. And Coronaviruses attack cells of the upper respiratory and gastrointestinal tract. Influenza or Coronavirus infection complications can lead to Pneumonia or inflammation in the airways due to low oxygen levels in the blood. Unfortunately, there is no vaccine for Coronaviruses yet. Our best defense is to have a healthy immune system.
CBD bind to the Cannabinoid receptors-the key components of the Endocannabinoid system located on the surface of cells. Cannabinoid receptors respond to the changing conditions outside the cell by reporting abnormal conditions to the inside of the cell which initiates the appropriate immune response to the viral invasion.

Vitamin C can helps stimulate the production and the functions of white blood cells which bind and neutralize the invading viruses.
Curcumin has high anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which can repair damaged cells caused by viral infections and help our body heal faster.
