The Secret to Reverse Ageing

HIIT form of exercise has been gaining popularity and a recent study has proved its benefit in anti-ageing

Have you heard about the Hindu mythology where gods and demons churned the ocean with a serpent? This was done to find that magical elixir (amrita) which could give youth and immortality.

As per the Himalaya website, Septilin is as per doctor’s prescription and not for self-medication. It is available as a syrup too but I tried the capsules since it is convenient to carry.

It is light blue in color and leaves a color mark on the tongue or on the fingers if they are wet.
