C is for Covid, Chilli and, just maybe… Cure?

According to this report in today’s media, Vitamin C might be a viable defence against the dreaded Covid-19 virus. And what better way to load up on the bug-buster than with chilli.

Science reckons that 100g of fresh chilli (red or green) will give us around a whopping 230% of our vitamin C RDA.

With regard to Covid-19 directly, well research is still underway,  trials are ongoing (and likely to be for some while), and there is no hard evidence to support the efforts being made by the New York Doctors  who are prescribing large doses of Vit C.

That said, any excuse to load up on our beloved chillies is welcome, and it can only benefit our industry if the tests prove positive.
