Nutrisia Aquariushinta Sayuti, Youstiana Dwi Rusita

Abstract

The spread of Coronavirus Disease-19 (Covid-19) has made the Indonesian people optimize their efforts to maintain health and fitness. One of the efforts is traditional medicinal herbs, especially traditional Indonesian medicine or 'jamu’, used empirically to increase immunity. The literature review aimed to describe the formula of traditional medicinal herbs in Indonesia to maintain health and fitness during the Covid-19 pandemic. The literature review searched articles on Pubmed, ScienceDirect, and Google Scholar. The selected articles were the last ten years' articles. The keyword was 'Covid-19 and herbs and immunostimulant or immunomodulator and Indonesia'. The article was published the last ten (10) years, in English or Indonesian, and discusses traditional medicinal herbs for maintaining health and fitness during the Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia. The selection was made by reading the title, abstract, and full article to analyze the quality of the research. Data extraction was carried out to describe the formula's name, simplicia of the ingredients, pharmacological activity, and secondary metabolites. The literature review found five (5) articles that met the inclusion and exclusion criteria with thirteen (13) formulas. The formula was jamu, and the formula was from traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda. Each formula contained simplicia that support each other's properties for health and fitness maintenance. The simplicity was used as an immunomodulator, reducing the symptoms of Covid-19 and overcoming the comorbid factors that accompany the Covid-19 disease. The government's efforts to increase the independent actions of healthy life in Indonesia can be supported by traditional herbs.
