What Is Giloy And What Are Its Health Benefits?
Giloy. Ever heard of it?
Giloy is such a secret that even MS Word doesn’t recognise it.
But it’s not going to be a secret for you much longer.
Giloy is a powerful herb that spices up your diet and boosts your health. Known in Asia as the Indian Tinospara, it is basically the Indian version of nectar (and we all know that nectar is the food of the gods, right?).
According to some, it’s even known as the “roots of immortality”. Sounds amazing, right??
Giloy can be added to smoothies (or any kind of juice), or you can consume it in the form of capsules or powder. Here a few of its amazing health benefits:
Giloy Boosts Immunity
According to ancient Indian’s, giloy was the root of immortality. This has not been scientifically verified (unfortunately), so you’re either going to have to take the ancient Indian’s word for it, or you’ll have to admit that they had a bit of an overly optimistic imagination.
Either way, giloy does boost your immunity so that you’ll at least be functioning at your best for the few years you’re here for.
And a well-functioning immune system is super important. Once your immune system is compromised, you’re more vulnerable than usual to catching infections and viruses. Moreover, you feel more exhausted and ‘out of it’ than usual.
