As claimed by yoga guru Swami Ramdev, Coronil was introduced as a tablet to treat patients suffering from coronavirus from all over the Indian cities like Delhi, Ahmedabad, Meerut, etc. and during the clinical controlled tests and trials.
Coronil has some of the very powerful and known Ayurvedic herbs in it which helps in boosting the immunity of a person to fight against coronavirus.

However, Swami Ramdev claimed that it will be given free to the people below the poverty line.
Consumption of Coronil
Swami Ramdev, in the conference, explained how to consume the ayurvedic drugs including Coronil. He said that he gave the Coronil tablets and Swasari Vati 3-3 every three times in a day, i.e., in the morning, noon, and evening. He also said that Swasari Vati should be taken with an empty stomach and Coronil should be taken after the meal. Anu Taila is nasal oil drops, which cleans the respiratory tract and 3 drops should be taken in the morning with an empty stomach.
Swami Ramdev also added to his speech that the dosages could also be consumed by a person who is not infected by a coronavirus. As it helps in boosting immunity, hence, this pandemic disease won’t spread in the future to a healthy person if a healthy person consumes it.
It is recommended for the age group of 15 to 80 years. It means the majority of people can consume it from youths to old age people.
Effectiveness Of Coronil
As mentioned above Coronil is said to be clinically studied and controlled tested ayurvedic medicine which turned out to give 100 percent positive impacts on Covid-19 positive patients claimed by Swami Ramdev. During the clinical controlled trial, in just 3 days 69 percent of patients who were suffering from coronavirus tested negative, and only in just 7 days, 100 percent of patients had recovered by the dosage. While 35 percent of the patient who was not given Coronil, tested positive for COVID-19.
He also added to it that, there was a 0 percent death rate observed in the clinical trial as 100 percent of patients recovered. And so he concluded that Coronil not just controls the virus infection but also cures totally within 3 to 7 days. And thus, he claimed it as the first ayurvedic medicine for the treatment of COVID-19.
Since it has more than 100 ingredients present in it, it makes it a more powerful drug against COVID-19, claimed by Swami Ramdev. The naturally occurring minerals, herbs, phytochemicals, and phyto-metabolites make it a more special and strongest drug to boost the immunity of an individual human being.
It is not only claimed to fight against COVID-19 but also is claimed to cure other respiratory-related diseases like chronic respiratory disease and also useful for any kind of heart disease. The drug also prevents lowering the oxygen level in an individual’s body thereby, keeping an individual healthy.
Government Approval To Coronil
According to the source, Divya Corona kit including Coronil has been approved as a medicine. It is approved by the government of Uttarakhand as an immunity booster and medicine against respiratory tract infection and other types of bacterial and viral infections.
Swami Ramdev said that “clinical trials of the Coronil don’t need any approval from the Indian Council of Medical Research(ICMR), but was conducted after the approval from the ethics community- the Clinical Trials Registry- India(CTRI)”.
The Ministry of Ayush (MoA) and ICMR have distanced themselves from commenting on this ayurvedic drug Coronil and others in the kit. However, MoA has raised a red flag on Patanjali’s Coronil and asked about the approval from the state government and also about the details of studies done by the Patanjali Foundation and to submit a copy of evidence, clinically trial report and research studies to them. MoA has also asked Patanjali Foundation not to advertise the drug and not to name it as the drug against the coronavirus until it is studied and approved by the MoA and ICMR.
