In India, nutritional inadequacies are a big problem. Due to poor diets, both children and adults experience minor to severe nutritional imbalances. As a result, a lot of people have poor immune systems and get sick more frequently. Protein, vitamin D, iron, vitamin B12, and folate are a few of the typical nutritional deficits that Indians suffer from. With the pandemic, it has become more important than ever to review our health and naturally boost our immunity to fend off illnesses and infections.

"Our immune system naturally protects us from pathogenic bacteria, but if our immune systems are compromised, we are more likely to contract illnesses. The immune system relies on balance and harmony to function. We must consume healthful foods, drink plenty of water, engage in regular physical activity, and get enough sleep to maintain that. According to Dr Shruthi M. Hegde, Senior Research Associate-R&D, Himalaya Wellness Company, employing immunomodulators produced from herbs and herbal products also boosts immunity and increases the body's resilience to infections. "Herbs help with detoxification and contain anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant qualities. By using supplements, we can incorporate these into our daily routines. The best course of action is to adopt general good-health standards, she continues.
