Indian medicinal system is one of the most promising systems among health sciences as it not only cures the ailment but is also important in preventing the disease or building the immunity in body that can itself act as a barrier against many diseases. Today, when the world is struggling with a pandemic called as Covid-19, various research labs and scientists are finding it difficult to come up with any treatment or vaccine that can stop this pandemic whose infection rate is much higher than its other genetic members like SARS CoV-1 and MERS. In such a situation, our Indian Herbal medicinal system i.e. Ayurveda gives a ray of hope in preventing against such infectious disease by boosting the immunity of persons of all age group specially the elderly who are more prone to it and the ones with other disorders related to hypertension and glycaemia. This article focuses on a polyherbal drug i.e. Dashmool which is a combination of roots of ten herbal plants and can act synergistically in fighting against a pandemic which is now turning to be a syndemic.
