We have all heard the older generation speak about taking precautions before you have to take medicine. They have always spoken about the importance of an effective and healthy diet to improve our immunity system. Simple practices like having a glass of milk in the morning to having a small piece of jaggery post meals, I believe that the senior generation was subtle yet consistent in taking care of their basic health using natural products which were mostly available in the kitchen.
We are currently experiencing a global situation where it is very essential to take care of our immune system. In addition to increased pollution, stress levels are also increasing. These everyday problems have received an additional burden of never before seen flu and viruses. Natural immunity boosters are a ‘must-include’ in our diets more than ever now. No matter what, I am always drawn back to my roots - Eat 1 teaspoon of ghee every day in the morning.
As per Ayurveda, it is advised to drink ghee in the morning on an empty stomach as the ghee treats the body like Rasa. Rasa is an essential source of nutrition for each and every cell in the body. It improves the process of cell rejuvenation which assists the healing process of the body.
Butyric acid for a strong immune system
A Japanese study conducted in 2013 shows that butyrate is effective to boost the immune system. Their research demonstrates that butyric acid, a short-chain fatty acid produced by commensal bacteria acts on naïve T cells to promote their differentiation into Treg cells. It achieves this through epigenetic changes that regulate the expression of the genes responsible for the differentiation of naïve T cells into Treg cells.
Desi Cow Ghee for Boosting Immunity
Ghee is a rich source of Butyric Acid. In addition to being a great support for improved immunity, ghee also helps in keeping the digestive system in good shape. A combination of a good digestive system along with strong immunity is definitely helpful in staying fit and healthy.
Which Ghee should be consumed to get the benefit of strong immunity?
Only 100% verified Desi Cow Ghee made using the traditional Bilona process should be consumed to get any ghee benefits. What we must understand is that the traditional process of making ghee includes converting whole milk into curds and later churn it with a bilona to get butter which is then heated to make ghee.
