"Having juice made of giloy leaves, aloe vera, papaya leaves and pomegranate not only increases platelet count but also increases overall immunity of the body...having goat or cow milk slightly help as well, but in case of their non-availability, one need not worry," he said. On suggestions that he was trying to market his products at a time when people are in a state of panic over cases of dengue, he said, "Did I for once take the name of any product? I was merely endorsing natural remedies." On the lack of any third party endorsement for his products, Ramdev said it was not needed as he had "first hand evidence". "I could have brought Union Health Ministers JP Nadda and Shripad Naik to my presser. But that would have led to allegation that I have setting with the government. I don't want Narendra Modi's government to get mired in any controversy," he said.
