Abstract: The capacity to resist almost all types of organisms or toxins that tend to damage the tissues and organs (leading to the causation of disease) is called immunity. There are two types of immunity: innate immunity and acquired immunity. In the current pandemic era, there is a need for drugs that can boost immunity in our bodies and give protection against microorganisms. Rasayan is one of the unique branches of Ayurveda and it is suggested to increase Oja. Modern scientific observation on Rasayan shows that rejuvenating drugs can protect the body against detrimental effects of the atmosphere in which we live by augmenting the individual's capability to fight against disease-carrying organisms through stimulating the immune system. When visha (poison) is used correctly, it becomes beneficial as rasayana. A person who regularly consumes poison is not afraid of anything, including poison given by enemies in food, any type of poisoning condition, old age, premature ageing, and organs that cause illness. Rasayan Yoga is mentioned in many Ayurveda texts, which in this research paper describes Visha Rasayan which is mentioned in Rasatarangini. Visha Rasayan contains the following ingredients: Visha (Vatsnabh), vermilion Hingul, Rajat Bhasma, Shunthi Churna, Marich Churna, Pippali Churna, Cinnamon, bay leaf, small cardamom, Nagkeshar, and Chitrakamool Churna. This yoga may protect against disease-causing organisms as well as any type of environmental poison. Visha Rasayan ingredients include Visha dravya, which also has Rasayan properties, making it more beneficial for gaining acquired immunity.
