What is Immunity?
The ability of an organism to fight infection, disease or invasion of unwanted micro-organisms in the body without triggering allergy or autoimmune diseases is called immunity. Immunity is the natural defense system of the body which plays a crucial role in maintaining optimum health.
Stronger immunity, healthier life. Why?
Immunity is the natural shield of the body. A person with stronger immunity is much less susceptible to common diseases and infections, leading to a healthier life and better life quality.
Ayurveda and Immunity
According to the Ministry of AYUSH, Ayurveda is the science of life. Ayurveda, which is primarily a plant- based science, encourages the use of natural ingredients for preventive care to maintain a healthy life. The classical scriptures of Ayurveda emphasize on uplifting and maintaining immunity to achieve better health and also offers the wisdom of pure herb mixtures that can be helpful to boost immunity and improve respiratory health.
What is ‘Shakti’?
‘Shakti’ is a mixture of 18 pure ayurvedic herbs in a specific percentage supported by Ayurvedic literatures and scientific publications, which will help to boost immunity and overall respiratory health. This preventive self-care can be a life-saving ritual when included in daily life.
Why drink Shakti instead of individual herbs?
While individual herbs are effective to improve immunity, a mixture of 18 immunity boosting herbs is the ultimate solution for strong immunity that can work as an effective shield against infection causing virus and bacteria. However, to get the best benefits of Ayurvedic herb mixtures, it is important to mix pure and fresh herbs in the right percentage. Excess or less of even any one ingredient can reduce the effectiveness of the potion or trigger unwanted side effects. ‘Shakti’ has been subjected to clinical trials to ensure high effectiveness and maximum safety.
