According to Delhi government: Chyawanprash is also an immunity booster

A study on Chyawanprash as an immunity booster against Covid-19 has shown ‘encouraging results’, a Delhi government-run Ayurvedic hospital has claimed.

A four-month-long study on health care workers of Chaudhary Brahm Prakash Ayurved Charak Sansthan, the country’s biggest hospital of Indian system of medicine, has suggested that regular use of Chyawanprash can protect an individual from a severe infection of Covid-19.

The study was started in May last year on 200 Covid-19 negative healthcare professionals who were equally divided into two groups – Study and Control.

The Study group was administered 12 grams of Chyawanprash daily twice a day empty stomach in the morning at least one hour before breakfast and at night two hours after dinner with warm water.

‘However, in the long term follow-up after completion of the intervention period, the participants in the study group were found to be more protected from a severe infection of Covid-19 as only two participants were RT-PCR positive after 2 months of completion of the study period and both were asymptomatic,’ Prof (Dr) Vidula Gujjarwar, the Director and Principal of the hospital said.

‘On the other hand in the Control group, four participants were RT-PCR positive in the same duration, and one out of them had to be hospitalized,’ Prof (Dr) Gujjarwar said.

The research was initiated on the hypothesis that Chyawanprash could potentially be used as a safe prophylactic intervention along with standard precautionary measures, to prevent symptomatic infection in the population having a high risk of exposure to the SARS CoV-2 virus.
