SORIG immune boosters are proving to be highly effective in the fight against COVID-19, claimed the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA).

The CTA has its headquarters at Dharamsala and it has been providing the medicine free as immune boosters to all Tibetans above the age of 65.

“Numerous feedbacks from the settlement offices suggest that the SORIG immune boosters which the Mentsee Khang and the Health Department have been distributing are highly effective in aiding the recovery of patients,” an official statement quoting CTA’s Deputy Secretary Tenzin Kunsang said on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the Mentsee Khang is ramping up its production because of the increasing requirement, despite the unfavourable weather conditions.

Kunsang urged the people not to waste SORIG as it was ‘truly rare and precious’.

SORIG products are prepared from a variety of herbs.

So far CTA’s task force has distributed the immune boosters to 15,144 Tibetans in India and abroad.

The CTA further informed that the prescribed set of 10 immune boosters containing precious pills such as Mangjor, Drangjor, Rasam and others were approved by a panel of Tibetan Medical and Astrological Institute doctors led by Tsewang Tamdin.
