Giloy also known as Guluchi / Guduchi, is a famous Ayurvedic perennial climber herb in India. It grows in deciduous forests often on mango, banyan or neem tree. It has significant heart shaped leaves, yellow flowers and ripe drupes are red in colour. The barks are grey in colour and roots are aerial in nature. Guluchi is an excellent Rasayana for the treatment of various diseases.
The main effect of Guduchi or Tinospora Cordifolia is on AMA (Toxins formed in the body due to malabsorption and ill digestion). It reduces AMA and helps in all types of diseases in which AMA is associated. It is suitable for every person with any body type or with any disease due to its immunomodulator, rejuvenative and adaptogenic action. According to ayurveda, it increases the diminished DOSHA or DHATU and reduces the increased DOSHA or DHATU, so it brings balance of three DOSHA (Vata – Wind, Pitta – Fire, Kapha – Water) in the body and helps preventing all types of diseases.

Giloy and Cancer treatment:
There are various mentions of Giloy in Hindu mythology. In Ramayana, Lord Rama, with an army of monkeys, defeated Ravana. This made Lord Indra so happy with Lord Rama that he sprinkled nectar to make dead monkeys alive. Few drops of nectar sprinkled from the bodies of monkey and from them guduchi sprouted. That is why it is called as amrita that it can’t be dead. According to another mythology, during samudra manthan when the pot full of amrita came out of the sea, the demons took it and ran away. So while running few drops of amrita fell on earth and took form of a climbing herb known as Giloy. Ever since, we are reaping benefits of its magical properties.
Our Neem- Giloy:
Neem-Giloy is the Giloy creeper that has Neem tree as a host. Giloy is a parasitic creeper that normally strangulates all other trees except Neem and Bel. When its host is either of them, it also gets their properties in part. Hence it becomes more potent.
Note: We advise that natural products be consumed in their pristine form, without any preservatives or processing chemicals, unless a preparation is advised by an Ayurvedic doctor. It gives maximum health benefits and keeps costs low (compared to the huge medical costs due to modern diseases.)
