This herb is most highly valued for its pharmacological properties that can help fight a variety of infections by helping in boosting immunity. Dr. Vaidya’s Giloy Capsule allows you to consume this highly regarded Ayurvedic herb in a convenient way. Giloy or Guduchi features rominently as a balya (that which enhances bodily strength) and rasayana (that which promotes health, provides defense against disease, and promotes longevity) in some of ancient Ayurveda’s most revered texts that also mention other properties such as Agnideepana, Tridoshshamaka, Kasa-swasahara, Kamla-Kushta-Vataraktanashaka, Prameha, and Arshnashaka. From a modern scientific perspective, these ancient Ayurvedic recommendations are now supported by research. Described botanically as Ttinospora cordifolia, giloy has been found to exhibit a wide range of potential medicinal properties, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, anti-arthritic, anti-allergic, anti-diabetic, and most notably immunomodulatory properties making it natural immunity booster. The herb boost immunity through both immune stimulating and antibacterial effects. Research shows that giloy supplementation can enhance phagocytic and intracellular bactericidal activities of macrophages and can also induce Th1 immune responses. This is why one of the primary uses of giloy in Ayurveda is for building immunity.
