Ayurvedic drug Fifatrol 'can help beat deadly coronavirus'
Fifatrol ayurvedic drug offers improved immune system in top notch form to fight off viral, bacterial and other infections; normalises raised body temperature, fastens recovery and eases the associated symptoms like flu, cold and congestion.
Fifatrol as an immunity-boosting ayurvedic drug has found a mention among around 200 technologies and research activities evaluated by experts in a recently released compendium for combating the novel coronavirus. It is a natural formulation providing fast relief from nasal congestion, sore throat, body ache and headache.
Compiled by the state-run National Research Development Corporation, the "Compendium of Indian Technologies for Combating COVID-19 (Tracing, Testing &Treating)" provides the status of 200 indigenously developed technologies and ongoing research activities and efforts taken by the government to combat the deadly viral infection.
Health experts have suggested that boosting the body's immune system may help minimise the effects and hasten the recovery from the disease, the compendium stated.
"Fifatrol acts as an immunity enhancer which is a multi-drug combination of ayurvedic classical medicines and herbs. Researchers have suggested that Fifatrol acts as a natural antibiotic and fights infection, flu and ache," it said.
Fifatrol is "enriched with scientifically validated botanical extracts and micro-nutrients. It is a rational combination of vital phytoconstituents, immunomodulators and antioxidants which justifies its beneficial effect for the treatment of viral upper respiratory infections", according to the compendium.
Developed by the AIMIL Pharma, Fifatrol is a formulation of well-known immunity enhancer herbs like ‘Guduchi’, ‘Sanjeevini Ghanvati’, ‘Daruharidra’, ‘Apamarga’, ‘Chirayata’, ‘Karanja’, ‘Kutaki’, Tulsi, ‘Godanti’ (Bhasam), ‘Mrtyunjaya Rasa’, ‘Tribhuvana Kriti Rasa’ and ‘Sanjivani Vati’.
The drug offers improved immune system in top notch form to fight off viral, bacterial and other infections; normalises raised body temperature, fastens recovery and eases the associated symptoms like flu, cold and congestion, the compendium said.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi, too, recently highlighted the benefits of ayurveda and urged people to have a look at AYUSH Ministry's protocol to stay fit, saying good health is the harbinger of happiness," it further said.
This comes as the Prime Minister has urged AYUSH practitioners to pitch in to tackle the coronavirus pandemic. He has also been exhorting the citizens to fall back on traditional home remedies to boost their immunity amid the outbreak.
