3 top benefits of Giloy to improve immunity, digestion and skin

It is a popular herb in ayurveda which is effective in treating many of the health issues. It is a herb which is popular mostly in India and known as Indian Tinospora in Hindi (national language of India). It is so beneficial to health that the Indians also call it as amrut (nectar). By this you can understand the importance of this herb and its benefits on health. Ifit’s called the nectar for health then it should be very useful to health. Right? Yup,it is used in every foot of curing diseases, like we take an example to relieve gout- it is mixed with castor oil and used to relieve gout. Not just gout, but in treating of rheumatoid arthritis, skin related diseases, constipation etc. all these are related to different parts of the body and we can observe that this herb plays a prominent role in every disease or problems related to human body.

There was a time when there was no science or any doctors as we find in today’s modern world so what did the people do to get cured in those days? Off course, they couldn’t take up anything and apply or use to get cured. There they were used to ayurveda and many people were trained to use these herbs in effective way. I agree that ayurvedic treatment is a slow process but it can also be named as an effective treatment which can’t be ignored due to its fewer side effects as compared to today’s medicine implementations. But, the recovery of today’s medicine is quick as compared to ayurveda and when it comes to Giloy, it was a prominent medicine or ingredient in the preparation for cure to various health problems.
