May 17, 2021 18:16 IST | By Editorji News Desk

India is currently battling the deadly coronavirus' second wave and it is now coming to affect children as well. Hence, it is extremely essential to take extra care of their diet and immunity levels. Apart from eating clean and healthy foods, consider adding some ayurvedic herbs recommended by Kaumarbhritya to strengthen your child’s immunity.

For those who are not aware, Kaumarbhritya is the branch of Ayurveda which deals with child immunity and wellness. Take a look at these herbs defined by Ayurveda that may help boost your child’s immune system.

Tulsi

Often referred to as the queen of herbs, tulsi leaves are rich in vitamin C, A and K. They are an excellent remedy for common cold or cough, so boil some basil leaves in water and let your child drink this concoction every morning.

Turmeric

Also known as haldi, it can be found in every Indian household. Turmeric is anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic, which is why it is great for children. Giving a cup of turmeric milk regularly will ensure that your child does not fall ill frequently.

Ashwagandha

An ancient medicinal herb, Ashwagandha is known for not only helping heal physical ailments but also improving a child's mental health. It is particularly helpful for preventing colds but can also be used when kids are stressed out or tired.


Amla

This fruit is excellent for your child! Adding amla to your kid's daily diet can help your child not only develop a strong immunity but also reap various other benefits related to digestion, skin and others. One can put grated amla in dips, sauces and salads.

Giloy

If your child is running a fever, you can give Giloy water to them. It helps in removing toxins, purifies the blood and fights bacterias. It also acts as a rejuvenating agent and cures urinary tract infections. One can easily prepare giloy water at home by boiling one long branch of giloy and a few Tulsi leaves for a few minutes.
