Looking in today’s environment, keeping our immune system strong and healthy is of utmost priority. Along with that, another determinant that plays a major role is reducing the inflammation by using anti-inflammatory herbs
A paper published in a journal during March 2020 studied a person who was exposed to Covid 19 with mild symptoms, responded and recovered well. In this, the authors write, days after the symptom onset huge number of helper T-cells, killer T-cells, and B-cells, all of which are crucial immune cells that were active in the patient's blood samples. Basically, there was a robust immune response, which lead to his quick recovery from Covid-19. The same thing has been shown in other infections like flu as well. So we know that immunity matters, and Ayurveda plays a significant role and offers so much in preventing and improving your health
Secondly, with this disease, we know that inflammation is a critical factor. The virus triggers NLRP3 inflammasome, a compound within the cell. So when Covid-19 attacks the lungs and causes pneumonia, which will lead to ARDS( Acute Respiratory distress syndrome), this damage is mostly caused by activating inflammasome by triggering excessive hyper inflammation. So more we keep inflammation down and under control, the more you can prevent the manifestation of severe disease.
