Strong immunity is key to healthy living and health experts have been speaking about it for eternity. But it is just recently (since the year 2020) that people started paying extra attention to strengthening immune health. We have noticed that many of us include more and more nutritious foods in our diet to keep up good health. We also saw kadhas and herbal teas making their way back to our daily lives. Today, the internet is filled with different types of kadha recipes - each loaded with unique health benefitting properties. While it is advised to consult experts before including these kadhas in our diet - studying the ingredients (used in kadhas) can be a great way to start healthy living.
