King of Bitters Andrographis - 50 Capsules (500mg)
Botanical Name: Andrographis paniculata
Andrographis paniculata is an herbaceous annual plant in the Acanthaceae family. Known as Kalmegh in Ayurveda, Creat, King of Bitters, Green Chiretta or Indian Chiretta in English speaking countries, and chuān xīn lián in Pinyin Chinese.
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 useful for COVID prevention and infection.
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.
