What is an Ayurvedic Kadha?
If you are not aware of the Indian Ayurveda school of medicine, a Kadha is an Ayurvedic Immunity Booster Drink. It requires many Ayurvedic herbs and spices. These spices & herbs are sometimes soaked beforehand, then boiled in water to extract their nutrients and activate their medicinal properties. Then it is served hot as an herbal tea. It is considered to be the most effective remedy against cold, cough, flu, and other such symptoms.
Since Indians have been practicing Ayurveda for a very long time, many recipes for Kadha are available. Many families have their own list of basic ingredients with some variations. Mostly, turmeric root, ginger, cinnamon, cardamons – green and black both, black peppercorns, carrom seeds, are some of the common ingredients of a homemade kadha recipe, Some of those are highly effective, some are drinkable and some are not as effective or good to taste.

💫⭐🙏🏻⭐️🌈🦪 In the Pandemic Times, everyone is looking to consume Kadha from our rich Heritage of Ayurveda. So was my mom! But I'm not someone who can hoard herbs and happily sip a kadha 😁😁 I'm more of a coffee person and we all know coffee and tea do more harm than good. When I received #NanijiKaKadha I honestly liked the name a lot. @the99platter_t99p assured me that once you try this, you will definitely order another and she sounded so confident, I decided to try it out. She was right! The kadha has immense benefits, is made of all natural herbs, and tastes Fine – drinkable – nice! Its not like the awful kadha we often get. I was getting low grade fever since quite a few days. I drank #NanijiKaKadha for 1.5 day ( empty stomach for 2 mornings and just before sleeping for one night) and thankfully I've not had any viral symptoms since then #honestreview You can see how doubtfully I take the first sip 😂😂😂 Infact, Chitransh happily consumed some too. The kadha is sugar free, and has mulethi, so it is naturally a little sweet – a little spicy. But you may add jaggery or honey to the fresh concoction. 1 tsp makes 4 cups. After making the kadha, you can use the sieved mix to soak again. You can re-use the mix upto 2 days or 4 doses. I highly recommend this for your family! It is available in Jar and a refil pack.

Kindly make sure that you do not add any sugar, as refined sugar tends to diminish the potency of any ayurvedic medicine. Using jaggery is ideal however, you may use honey, stevia, or erythritol as well.
