Amino Z Andrographis 1kg

Sometimes referred to as the “king of bitters”, this plant was used for centuries in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine, having been native to South-eastern Asian countries. The leaves and underground component of the stem are most often used for its medicinal purposes.

Perhaps its most legendary claim to fame is that it was allegedly responsible for quelling the spread of the lethal flu pandemic of 1918 to 1919 throughout India, although there is no recorded proof of such. Today, it is still widely used throughout the world, thanks to its many benefits which include:

May Help Manage The Common Cold

Andrographis used in conjunction with Siberian ginseng may help support rapid recovery from the common cold, especially when taken within 72 hours after the onset of symptoms, according to results of one published study[i].

The combination may also prove superior when used in children, compared to the use of Echinacea.

May Help Reduce Sore Throat And Fever

The use of Andrographis is comparable to the pharmaceutical drug acetaminophen (paracetamol) for reducing symptoms of fever and sore throat pain[ii] associated with tonsillitis, when used over the course of 3 to 7 days according to findings of one study.

This may prove to be an interesting alternative to people looking for non-pharmaceutical ways of treating fevers or pain.

May Reduce Inflammation

The use of Andrographis in managing inflammation in humans is extremely limited at this time, but one study which investigated how it dealt with induced inflammation in rodents revealed that it possesses significant anti-inflammatory properties in vivo. This effect was said to be stronger than the anti-inflammatory drug dexamethasone[iii], which may be noteworthy in patients trying to avoid corticosteroid medications.

There is a high likelihood that these anti-inflammatory properties will hold true in human subjects, but until studies are done to confirm this, the jury is out.

May Possess Antimicrobial Properties

Preliminary investigations have found that Andrographis impairs growth of several pathogenic microbes in vitro (in the lab), including some of the most difficult to treat infections of the day. These include the bacteria that cause multidrug-resistant pneumonia and sepsis[iv], along with herpes simplex virus[v], and even specific parasites.

It is important to appreciate the fact that activity in the lab does not always translate to effect in humans, so do not attempt to self-treat for this specific purpose.

In Summary

Andrographis generally appears to be well tolerated when consumed, and possesses a good margin of safety. Minimal side effects are reported in approximately one out of every five individuals that consume it, but accepted dosages range from as low as 20 mg to 6000 mg daily, depending on your specific use.
