“As cases of Corona is on rise in Mysuru, we decided to distribute immunity boosters to employees of Mysore Airport in Mandakalli. Samshamani Vati is an Ayurvedic herbal formulation and each tablet contains herb Amrita Balli (Guduchi). Each box has 40 Samshamani Vati tablets and to boost immune system, one need to take two tablets orally twice a day, morning and evening, for ten days before food. Similarly, Arq-e-Ajeeb is a Unani medicine and one needs to inhale the medication by spraying it to their masks and hand kerchiefs,” he said.
