Pathogens are everywhere. Allergens are all around us. we can not stop them to attack our bodies. But, what we can do is just prepare our body to fight efficiently against them. So that we can check their entry in our body. And if anyhow they enter our system/tissues our defense cells don’t let these pathogens do much or irreparable harm to our body. This fighting capability of our body is called immunity and strong immunity is the key to stay healthy.
So how can we strengthen our immunity? Mother Nature has gifted us with many wonderful herbs. among this herbal treasure, Giloy and tulsi are natural immuno-booster and anti-viral herbs. Daily consumption of extracts of both of these herbs together rejuvenates us.
But nowadays the problem is that due to urbanization, it is hard to find these plants around our dwelling areas/homes. secondly, we can’t spare time from our ever busy schedule to collect herbs and make extract preparations at home. Thirdly, the herbs are not available in every season but the body requires them around the year. And the answer to all these problems is Aadees Giloy-Tulsi extract-based tablets.
AADEE’S GILOY-TULSI Tablets are Beneficial in
- Viral fever

Ayurveda marks it as a” Rasayana” which means a herb that aids in increasing natural immunity, enhances general well being, improves the fundamental functions of all organs, and delays the process of aging.
Tinospora cordifolia is a traditional ayurvedic herb used since ancient time mostly in the treatment of a number of ailments, for instance, fever(P.U.O), viral diseases, malaria, general and sexual debility, diabetes, arthritis, hyperacidity, chronic diarrhea, dysentery, jaundice cancer, bone fracture, pain, asthma, skin disease, poisonous insect, snake bite, eye disorders, etc.
Let’s understand how Giloy exhibits such versatility in its medicinal effects.
The white blood cells, lymphatic system (thymus, spleen, tonsils, lymph nodes, ) and bone marrow together constitute our immune system.. It protects our body against the constant health provocations we face every day. These provocations include billions of microbes, pollutants, allergens, physical and psychological stress. Our weak immune system can not confront them and we become ill.
Recent reports have shown that Giloy plant extracts have active compounds in the form of alkaloids, glycosides, lactones, and steroids. All these active compounds have immunomodulatory and physiological roles of different types. For instance, the daily consumption of Giloy extract increases our natural immunity against many diseases.
Giloy extract helps in bacterial clearance and improves the phagocytic and intracellular bactericidal capacities of neutrophils. It enhances the phagocytic activity of polymorphic nuclear cells. It is helpful in managing viral fevers like swine flu, and dengue. Its extract is beneficial in malarial fever and other types of chronic fever.
Giloy plays a significant role in the treatment of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. It shows protein anabolic and anti-osteoporotic effects. The researches report that it affects the proliferation, differentiation, and mineralization of bony tissue and also induces a significant increase in the thickness of the joint cartilage.
The phytoconstituents of Giloy have been reported to play an anti-diabetic role. It regulates blood glucose levels by promoting insulin secretion which results in the inhibition of gluconeogenesis (formation of glucose from proteins and fats) and glycogenolysis (formation of glucose from glycogen)
Oxidative stress(OS) means the tissue damage caused by free radicals in the body. This OS weakens our natural immunity. Reports claim that the extract of the stem of Giloy helps in mitigating oxidative stress. Giloy-extract helps in scavenging free radicals generated in our tissues due to poisonous carcinogens and mutagens.
It enhances the activities of antioxidant enzymes. the antioxidants in Giloy neutralize the free radicals and keep our cells healthy.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF TULSI
Ayurveda marks the holy basil as the queen of herbs as it is a tonic not only for the body but also for mind and spirit. it offers solutions to many modern-day health problems. Let’s talk about the medicinal properties of Ocimum sanctum, an aromatic shrub in the Lamiaceae family.
It gives protection against natural toxins produced within the body as well as the toxins produced in the body due to the vast range of pollutants, pesticides, synthetic medicines, heavy metals, radiation, and other industrial toxicants created from human activity.
Tulsi has a high content of phenolic compounds that protects the cells from toxin-induced damage. The researches show that the holy basil increases the levels of anti-oxidant molecules such as glutathione in the body. It also enhances the activity of antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase and catalase.
Thus, it protects the cells from the damage caused by free radicals. It enhances the activity of liver detoxification enzymes which in return deactivates toxic chemicals and enables the body to eliminate them safely
Prolonged physical exertion, exposure to cold, flu, fever, etc. disturb our homeostasis. It leaves the body in physiological and metabolic stress. Laboratory studies reveal that tulsi enhances aerobic metabolism and improves stamina. It reduces oxidative stress and normalizes many physiological functions of internal organs.
Tulsi enhances the production of neurotransmitters in the brain which helps in reducing the effects of acute and chronic noise-induced stress. Tulsi enhances the production of natural corticosteroids within the body which helps in reducing physical stress.
