In addition, it purifies the blood, enhances immunity, flushes out toxins from the body and effectively fights against bacteria and viruses. Consuming Giloy juice can help you get rid of fever, which is one of the symptoms of COVID-19. Its anti-inflammatory properties help in dealing with respiratory problems such as cough, cold and breathing problems. These are also major symptoms of novel coronovirus infections.
