Strengthening the immune system is more important than ever in 2020. Ayurveda is the right choice for protecting their body naturally from viruses and other pathogens. The Indian doctrine of healing relies on a vitamin-rich, antibacterial, and antiviral nutritional concept to strengthen the immune system – for example, in power drinks. Ayurvedic herbal and spice elixirs, which can easily be remixed in this country, activate the “Ojas” – endogenous life energy that is mainly responsible for the holistic feeling of well-being and, in particular, the body’s defenses.
Traditional Ayurveda hotels in India and Sri Lanka have revealed their best recipes for Ayurvedic immune booster drinks – they are healthy and delicious:
