Immunity Booster

Share this article

Tulsi leaves and Giloy stems have been mentioned in Ayurveda as being very beneficial for warding off flu/cold/infections/cough and running nose. These time-tested herbs have been used in India for generations and we just need to get back to them. Here, I have created a concoction using tulsi, giloy and other herbs that works as a wonderful immunity booster. Jaggery helps to mask the taste as well provide various minerals and vitamins.

Ingredients:

  • 10-15 Tulsi leaves
  • 1 stick Giloy (Approximately 10 cm long)
  • Small cube of ginger
  • 5-6 Curry leaves
  • 2-3 Cloves
  • 1 Stick cinnamon (3-4 cm long)
  • 3 Gms jaggery
  • 2 Cups water

Directions:

  1. Add all the ingredients into the water, except jaggery.
  2. Boil all the above for 15 minutes till the water reduces.
  3. Add jaggery to it and strain.
  4. Drink it lukewarm or hot as you would prefer.
