Ashwagandha

This ancient herb has numerous benefits. If we talk about its role in treating coronavirus patients, firstly Ashwagandha is known to boost immunity with the help of its antioxidant properties. It contains certain bio-actives that interact with SARS-Co-2. This herb has a natural compound called withanone (Wi-N), that can block the replication process of the novel virus and treat the condition.
