In the pandemic situation of SARS-CoV-2, where infection cases increase with 90K cases daily in India at a rapid pace per day, precautions are the only way to prevent contamination. Ayurveda seems to be a feasible option, with no existing drugs available to treat or suppress COVID-19, with vaccines under development, and no potential to be available on the market soon. It can be used to eradicate or reduce COVID infection and increase immunity as a preventive measure. The herbal formulations found in Ayurveda for ‘immunity enhancement,’ are deemed useful and are advised by various medical institutions, such as the Ministry of AYUSH. The answers to this global health problem are therefore more likely than in medical clinics, hospitals or pharmacies to be located in the homes and habits of people. In this article, we will look at the significance of ayurveda from a pharmacognostic approach and how it can be used in this pandemic scenario to improve immunity.
