The pandemic has left us all worried about our health. Even if we consume multiple medicines to treat several ailments, the impact of a natural herb is always wondrous. While we all follow various diets and look after health differently, Ayurveda offers many herbs for overall immunity. One such herb is Giloy. It is popularly known as ‘amrita’ in Ayurveda, which means the root of immortality. It has innumerable benefits, as stated in the Ayurveda. People use it for general wellness and to treat day-to-day conditions.
The scientific name of Giloy is Tinospora Cordifolia. It is also known as Guduchi in Hindi. Its stem is highly nutritious. However, it doesn’t taste enjoyable and is full of alkaloids that perform various pharmacological activities. Apart from the stem, we can use its roots and leaves to reap many benefits.
