The first step to immunity is treating your body right. It is extremely important to be good to your body because it’s the only place you’ll be living in your whole life. Our grandmothers always knew how to make the most of nature to keep us healthy. They had a plethora of options for all sorts of ailments. There’s a reason they were called “dadi maa ke nuskhe”!
Gone are the days when our beloved grandmothers would grind together different herbs for us to consume with scrunched up noses. Modern medicine has come far today when it comes to creating supplements to boost our health and build immunity. Dr. Care’s super Immune Blend is one such innovation. These effervescent tablets follow the simple principle of Drop, Fizz, Sip and are a delicious way of boosting your immunity!
Imbued with the goodness of Tulsi, Amla and Orange, it’s a quick and easy supplement that can easily blend into your daily routine. Here’s how it’s a blessing to your health and immunity:
Tulsi is a herb for all seasons and reasons as its roots, leaves and seeds have tremendous medical properties. It has phytochemicals with strong antioxidant properties that prevent liver, skin, lung and oral cancer. Hence, it helps fight major respiratory diseases like Asthma, Bronchitis, Sinusitis and Flu.
This herb is rich in Vitamin A, C, K, Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorous, Iron and Potassium. The presence of Zinc and Vitamin C boosts your immunity and the pain relieving properties of Eugenol helps reduce body aches. Tulsi is also antipyretic in nature and helps combat fever. Its anti-bacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties keep infections at arm’s length.
Often regarded as the ‘elixir of life’, regular consumption of Tulsi has proven to be a shield against cardiovascular diseases. It lowers the blood lipid content which keeps your heart and circulatory system healthy. Hence, it’s often prescribed to patients with hypertension to reduce blood pressure and stress. Tulsi helps enzymes function better, and aids in breaking and using carbohydrates more effectively.
This multifarious herb is also known to have hypoglycemic properties which help in controlling your blood sugar levels. It improves the secretion of insulin that regulates the level of blood sugar in the human body.
Also known as Indian gooseberry, Amla has quickly emerged as an inexpensive and popular superfood. Though it is abundant in Vitamin C, it’s also a great source of Vitamin A, E, Iron and Calcium. Hence, for someone with vitamin deficiencies, it is like a one stop shop to get a ton of nutrition! In fact, it has eight times more Vitamin C than Oranges and 17 times more antioxidants than a Pomegranate.
Due to the high level of Ascorbic Acid, it works as a strong antioxidant which helps your body cope with inflammations and even slows down ageing. Due to this property, it also becomes an excellent way to boost your immunity. In the current scenario, where the world is trying to cope with a pandemic, it’s essential to strengthen your immune system to keep all kinds of infections at bay. Regular consumption of Amla is a great way to achieve this.
You may have seen a lot of advertisements espousing the advantages of Amla for healthy hair. It improves blood circulation to your scalp, thereby promoting hair growth. It also prevents dandruff and slows down graying. In contrast, one of the least advertised benefits of Amla is perhaps, it’s ability to increase the body’s metabolism and help in burning fat.
Amla also helps reduce the risk of chronic health problems like diabetes, cancer, heart troubles and cholesterol. It helps maintain a healthy skin, heals wounds faster, relieves pain and strengthens your bones and cartilage. It is also a proven way to improve your eyesight. As you can see, the versatility of Amla is endless!
Oranges have quite an interesting history. They are believed to have originated in south east Asian, particularly in north-eastern India and south China. With the onset of Roman conquests and the establishment of Arab trade routes, the plant began to spread its wings to different continents. It is said that Christopher Columbus had bought orange seeds in 1493 and planted Orange orchards in Haiti. By 1518, Mexico and Panama had also had a taste of these delightful fruits.
Like Amla, Oranges also maintains immunity, thanks to Vitamin C which prevents inflammation. They are a great source of fiber, Vitamin A, C, Thiamine, Folate, and antioxidants. The presence of Vitamin A enhances your eyesight as it keeps the mucus membranes in your eyes healthy. On the other hand, its antioxidant properties prevent skin damage, boost your immunity. Oranges are packed to the gills with phytochemicals like flavonoids, carotenoids and hesperidin. These are largely responsible for its antioxidant properties.
They are also rich in Potassium which is a boon for those with hypertension as it reduces blood pressure. It lowers skin damage, maintains a healthy gut and prevents anemia. Though Oranges are not a great source of Iron, they contain organic acids like Vitamin C and Citric Acid which help your body in absorbing Iron from the digestive tract. Research has also shown that this fruit lowers the risk of heart diseases and kidney stone formation.
Apart from the richness of these herbs and fruits, Dr. Care’s Super Immune Blend is also packed with Vitamin D, Vitamin C and Zinc. This rare blend is seldom available in other supplements and makes your body stronger. These effervescent tablets are also free of sugar and calories, so they can be consumed by diabetic patients as well.
