Andrographis King of Bitters

Known as the King of bitters, Andrographis has been used for
anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial infections, anti-viral, whole body
detox that improves skin issues. Also for cold / flu symptoms

Andrographis (Andrographis Paniculata) is an herb long used in
traditional Chinese medicine and ayurveda. Also known as "Indian
echinacea," Andrographis is a bitter-tasting herb rich in compounds
known as Andrographolides. These compounds are thought to have
anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antioxidant properties

Andrographis has numerous traditional uses. In Ayurvedic medicine, it is
used as an alterative, (supporting the routes of detoxification),
stomachic (supporting digestion), and as an immune supporter. In Chinese
Medicine, Andrographis is thought to enter the lung channels and
channels of the digestive organs (small & large intestines, stomach). It
is said to ‘dry dampness’, ‘clear heat’, and to be indicated for heat
manifestations in the lungs and skin. Andrographis has been shown to
provide acute support for the immune system, particularly in maintaining
a normal body temperature. Both Ayurvedic and Chinese modalities utilize
Andrographis for stomach complaints in children. Andrographis is also
used as a digestive tonic. By being immensely bitter (note English name,
‘King of Bitters’), consumption of Andrographis supports the functions
of the gallbladder which in turn supports the liver. Andrographis has
become the subject of interest in modern research studies.
Andrographolide, a diterpene lactone produced by Andrographis
paniculata, has been shown to support a healthy immune response through
the modulation of the levels of immune cells in the blood. In
preliminary research, andrographolide has been shown to support normal
flow and pressure of blood in blood vessels, healthy blood sugar
balance, and normal liver function and lipid balance, making
Andrographis a promising herb for supporting the cardiovascular system
and metabolic functions. Andrographolide has also been shown to have
free radical scavenging and mitochondrial protective activity as an
antioxidant, with the most affinity for the kidney and liver tissues.
