Since ancient times, nilavembu has been widely used in traditional Indian medicine, including Ayurveda and Siddha, to treat fever and the common cold. In the cases of malaria, dengue fever, chikungunya, and swine flu, it is thought to be incredibly effective. It is well recognised to boost immune function and get the body ready to fight off diseases. Allergies can be successfully treated with it as well.
How to make
Boil 2-3g of Killi Nilavembu leaves with 150ml of water for 5 minutes, filter and serve. Add palm sugar to enhance the taste, if required."
