    HI.
    people of new generation have no idea, what is “Giloy”.
    I have been using Giloy herb in my most of the medicine for diabetes.
    If I start writing benefit of herb “Giloy” then I will be needing full 300 pages or more to finish.
    Giloy creeper grown on Neem tree adds more benefit to it.
    It is true , if you have neem +giloy+amla , it is very good.
    Bcos this 3 herbs has 90 % of all vitamin which are needed by our immune system .
    But if you add Turmeric (haldi) to this 3 herbs , it is called golden remedy for any sickness.
    According to old script of ayurveda, Person who have this herbs regularly and in 7days if person takes drumstick soup 4 times , person can keep himself away from major of life threatening sickness.
    I want to guide my friends related to giloy powder. In market Giloy powder is available in 3-4 colors.
    mostly what is available in market is very light brown color, while some shops give powder which look like maida (flour),while some powder which are available in market is of off white color. This all powder are not pure powder of Giloy herb. According to my experience in 100 gm powder only 60 to 70% is giloy powder. Let me give idea how to check giloy powder. let giloy be of any color, You have to smell the powder keeping your mind very calm. You have to focus on your breathing while smelling of giloy powder. When Giloy is pure and when you smell and focus on your breath, you will notice that smell of giloy is sweet and you can feel the taste of giloy. Taste of giloy is totally different then its smell. It is bitter in taste. Basically when giloy is powdered and no other powder is added to increase the weight, you will experience the taste of giloy while smelling powder without putting powder in mouth. if you don’t get the taste while smelling then you can take pinch of impure giloy powder and taste it. Still it’ll taste bitter.

      • Ratheesh says:

        Anybody above the age of 5 years can have it. More over its absolutely safe with no side effects. Since its also an immunity builder people can have it regularly no matter they are facing any kind of problem or not. Some wise people have very rightly said “prevention is better than cure”
