With the COVID-19 situation spreading across the world, there is a race for developing a vaccine or a drug that can cure it but with the availability of these still being a long time away people have resorted to boost their immunity to combat the coronavirus.

The National Institute of Pharmaceuticals Education and Research (NIPERs) have been working during the pandemic to provide sanitizers, masks PPE kits to help the medical sector. The Institute has recently launched its immunity booster Herbal Tea which it claims provides physical resistance to infections.

The highest death rates around the world have been observed in people with a weak immune system and many types of research are focusing on immune-boosting products that may generate a specific and non-specific immune response in the body that may generate antibodies against different types of Bacteria and Viruses.

The herbal tea by NIPER is made from a combination of herbs like Aswagandha, Giloe, Mulethi, Tulsi, and Green Tea which are mixed in a selected proportion to increase its immune-enhancing ability. The herbs were selected on the RASAYANA concept of Ayurveda.

The tea is suitable for people of all age groups and is advised to be taken three times a day to boost the immune system. NIPER claims that it is soothing in taste and will help with seasonal flu problems. A few days ago even the Kangra Tea was presented as a product to increase immunity. The tea is grown in the Dhauladhar mountain ranges in Himachal Pradesh and was awarded the GI tag in 2005.
