Andrographis is an ancient medicinal herb with an extensive history in Asia. It has been used for centuries to treat upper respiratory infections, fever, herpes, sore throat, and a variety of other chronic and infectious diseases.
A range of conclusive studies confirm not only its traditional use as an astringent therefore effective for throats, sinus and lungs but also to be active against a variety of bacterial and viral families due to its powerful immune strengthening benefits.. Thus it is easy to see effectiveness for this herb in conditions such as common colds, flu and general bacterial infections especially for sinus, nose, throat and chest infections…
Conditions treated with Andgrographis.
Other uses include strong research for application in Cancer, AIDS, heart disease and diabetes… Andrographis is traditionally highly regarded for benefits to the liver and a number of metabolic liver pathways. Recently more data has come to light for its use in Autoimmune conditions especially Rhuematiod Arthritis. This suggests Andrographis is very much an immune regulation herb with many diverse abilites which is once again likely to confuse and contradict modern medical thinking… However the research in recent years is very impressive.
