4 Popular Herbs (Spices) to increase immunity against Coronavirus

 4 Popular Herbs (Spices) to increase immunity against Coronavirus

Ayurveda and immunity

This ancient medical science had stated long ago that plant extracts could do a lot to strengthen the body. According to Ayurveda, our body can withstand infections only when all the seven layers of our body’s tissues (Rasa, Mamsa, Rakta, Medha, Majja, Asthi and Shukra) are strong. When the seven layers are working together, our immunity will be boosted.

And what do the layers need to stay healthy? Ojas. It is a subtle and invisible essence of your body tissues that keep you healthy. Ayurveda has said that certain plants and plant products can build ojas to empower our immunity.

Here are a few herbs that will help your body produce more ojas and keep COVID-19 at bay.

1. Moringa

Moringa is a herb that can help ward off many health complications. And during the COVID-19 pandemic, it should be your go-to herb for immunity strengthening.

So what makes moringa such a powerful immunity booster? The Vitamin C content of moringa is more than that of oranges. Vitamin C is one of the chief nutrients that our bodies need towards building a strong immunity.

That’s not all, moringa also contains some other vital nutrients that strengthen your cells, muscles, tissues and help your body heal. Consume moringa for its high levels of potassium, iron, calcium and amino acids.

2. Neem

Since time immemorial, neem has been respected and widely used as an immunity booster. It is very effective in keeping the body safe from attacks by harmful pathogens, thanks to its anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.

Neem can also keep your blood clean. It purifies the blood by flushing away toxins and this can strengthen immunity.


3. Tulsi

Tulsi is another wonder herb that is much favoured by Ayurveda. Tulsi or basil is a powerful germicide. Because of its phytochemicals and antioxidants, it can help locate germs, viruses and bacteria the moment they enter your body and destroy them. 

Simply chew a few leaves first thing in the morning. You can also add a few drops of water boiled with tulsi leaves into your food. 

4.. Ginger

Ginger has been an age-old remedy for flu and the common cold. It may help against viruses like COVID-19. It contains gingerol – an antioxidant that can power up our immune system and kill viruses. Ginger is particularly good in preventing respiratory tract infections. Add ginger to your meals or you can also have it raw.



Every time your grandmother said you need to consume turmeric for your health, she was right. Turmeric contains  a phytochemical that can help remove toxins from your body and strengthen your immune system to fight off germs and bacteria. Add an extra dash of turmeric to your meals or consume it with milk.
