Ayurveda relates the body’s immunity to Ojas— that is the essence of the seven tissues that make up our body. The ancient Indian therapeutic science of Ayurveda strongly counsels that we take care of the Ojas or the vital energy for good health and holistic well-being.  The seven tissues or dhatus are believed to make up the human body. These are Rasa [juice], Rakta [blood], Mansa [muscle], Medha [body fat], Asthi [bones], Majja [bone marrow] and Shukra [semen]. Ojas, the prime source of natural immunity, is the core extract of these seven body tissues and is highly vital to life and existence.

Top 6 Herbs For Immunity Building

Herbs such as aamla, mulethi, ashwagandha, ginger, basil, harad, turmeric, brahmi and large cardamom are beneficial for your immune system. Also, unctuous foods like honey, cow’s milk and desi ghee (clarified butter) work as natural rejuvenators.

Aamla or the Indian Gooseberry, is the richest and best natural source of vitamin C. It also contains calcium, iron, phosphorus, albumin, cellulose, fiber, carbohydrate, sugar and water. According to Ayurveda, the fruit of aamla helps reduce all the three doshas—vata, pitta and kapha (air, fire and phlegm); which, when aggravated above their normal limits, cause a disease. The special properties of rejuvenation and revitalizing of the entire body systems makes Aamla highly beneficial for increasing the body’s resistance power. Eating aamla in raw form may not be easy for all, but you need not fret. You could feast on aamla murabba, chutneys or jams. The powder of dried aamla [which is readily available] can also be taken mixed with honey, twice a day. You can even extract fresh juice from the aamla fruit and add it to salads or mix with other juices to balance the sourness. Chyawanprash, which contains aamla along with other herbs, is a well-known formulation that can be taken for long periods as a tonic to do away mental and physical fatigue.

Turmeric is used widely in India both for cooking and for medicinal purposes. It is believed to destroy all the three doshas or the basic humors of the body. Therefore, turmeric is recommended in a large variety of ailments and also as a potent immunity-boosting herb. Turmeric can be used to relieve ailments such common cold, dry itchy skin, joint pains and swellings. The best part is that it can easily be included in your daily diet to equip your body to fight maladies.
About 1 – 3 grams powder of raw turmeric is recommended and can be supplemented with warm water or milk. The powder can also be mixed with oil and massaged on the skin. Haridra Khanda is an effective Ayurveda formulation of turmeric.
