Seasonal changes can cause several health problems even to healthy people, if not promptly addressed. While people suffering from respiratory problems should be even more cautious and be well prepared in the advent of climatic changes that may elicit any kind of existing respiratory symptoms. In this monsoon season, infections like common cold, cough, flu, asthma, respiratory distress, and other infections caused due to pathogens are very common. Thus, rather than going down with a sickness, it is best to take necessary measures to stay safe and healthy.
The holistic science of Ayurveda offers you a rich array of traditional formulations that help to prevent seasonal infections and bolster the immune system. One such potent formulation is Lavangadi Vati, which is used for relieving persistent cough, sore throat, congestion, and other allergic respiratory issues. It aids in reducing throat irritation, dilutes the thick mucus in the lungs and soothes the airways. Aside from this, it eases throat pain and averts the formation of pus in the lungs. Lavangadi vati is a demulcent, anti-inflammatory, and expectorant in action. The key ingredient of this churna is clove that is known to pacify Kapha dosha. This churna is credited to have antispasmodic, antiseptic and carminative traits.
