“Secret of Curry,” an online post, has gone viral in Internet communities.

The post explains that curry is good for the health due to the medicinal effects of its powdered spices. 

Most curries contain turmeric, cumin, allspice, cardamom, ginger, garlic and capsicum -- spices with strong anti-bacterial properties.

According to recent studies, curries are known to improve memory, appetite and immunity. They also help stave off Alzheimer’s, cancer and obesity.

Curry, which originated from India and other South Asian countries, was first introduced in Korea during the Japanese colonial period.

The Korean version of curry, similar to that of Japan, is a meal with yellow curry sauce on rice that has enjoyed broad popularity.
