Robust immunity has helped men remain anchored to the planet earth. It has increased the chances of survival of mankind since ages. The documented concept of immunity dates back to 411 B.C. where Greek historian Thucydides observed that people who survived the endemic in Athens did not catch the disease again. The concept evolved over time and was made scientific with the inventions of Edward Jenner & Louis Pasteur in the 20th century.
Immunity: The focus of the world
In the current pandemic need of robust immunity has become more important than ever as there seems no signs of any vaccine and drug coming in next few months. Immunity has become the focus of worldwide health organizations, with Centre for Disease control and Prevention and University of Maryland, school of medicine including immunity booster supplements in their guidelines for prevention of Covid-19. In the current pandemic even though the virus is new, a robust immune response across different cell types was found to be associated with clinical recovery, similar to what is seen in influenza, observed by Prof. Katherine Kedzierska, co-author of a study in journal ‘Nature Medicine’ and researcher at University of Melbourne.
Immunity & our indigenous medical science
To boost the immunity of Indian citizens, Ministry of AYUSH, Government of India, has leveraged on our indigenous system of medicine – Ayurveda which describes immunity as ‘Bala’ & ‘Ojas’ which are further classified into ‘Sahaja bala’ – inborn immunity, ‘Kalaja Bala’ – acquired immunity & ‘Yuktikrit Bala’ as adaptive immunity. To put these concepts in practice, Ministry of AYUSH has come up with a potent formula to boost immunity and ward off most infections. The formula comprising of Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum), Sunthi (Zingiber officinalis), Dal Chini (Cinnamonum zeylanicum) & Kali Mirch (Piper nigrum) are all scientifically validated for boosting the immune system and exerting anti-bacterial and anti-viral action. Tulsi, for instance increases humoral immunity and rapidly produces anti-bodies against viruses and bacteria. Sunthi, relieves coughing, sore throat & common cold by boosting immunity due to the presence of gingerol which inhibits inflammatory mediators and thereby eases breathing. On the other hand, the protective effect on the body cells & lung tissues is exerted by Dalchini which scavenges DPPH free radicals due to rich polysaccharide content. The powerful anti-microbial action is exerted by Kali Mirch due to presence of piperine which damages the cell membrane of the pathogens. The AYUSH Ministry has also standardized the therapeutic concentration of these herbs and has named the formula as AYUSH KWATH. Aimil Pharmaceuticals to fulfill its commitment to serve the masses has come forward to bring AIMIL AYUSH KWATH in the market, AIMIL AYUSH KWATH is the result of the most superior quality ingredients with state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities to ensure the right quality, safety and efficacy of the product. For instance to maintain the strict quality control, Dal Chini, one of the ingredients of AIMIL AYUSH KWATH was procured from lands of Sri Lanka as it has best therapeutic concentration of the volatile oils, similarly Tulsi was procured from the holy lands of Mathura & Vrindavan which have a reputation to produce one of the best quality Tulsi in the world. All these efforts have a sole purpose of serving the mankind and preventing the spread of deadly corona virus by boosting the immunity of people.
With any help from modern medicine months away, boosting our immune defense in one of the important ways to save ourselves from the pandemic & AIMIL AYUSH KWATH becomes a beacon of hope as it comes from the science which conceptualized immunity 2500 years before Thucydides and 5000 years before Jenner & Pasteur.
