London: An ingredient often used to make curry may be the key to fending off the cold virus.

But now the herb has been hailed as an unlikely "fix-all elixir" thanks to its powerful antiviral properties.

In a three-month period - between October and late December - 10 healthy volunteers consumed two portions of the herb per week.
