- Andrographis Paniculata
- Anti-inflammatory, Stimulates the Immune System and helps your body fight Viral Infections
Constituents: The beneficial effects of Andrographis come from its high levels of bitter tasting Terpernoids, the most well known being Andrographolide. These terpenoids are potent anti-inflammatories, immune stimulants and lower blood sugar and blood glucose. Andrographis is also rich with flavanoids, including 7-O-methylwogonin and skullcapflavone-1. These flavonoids have strong anti-inflammatory effects, inhibiting the release of inflammation promoting cytokines (TNFα, IL-1, IL-6) in the body.
Actions: By inhibiting the release of inflammatory cytokines, formulations of andrographis may help to reduce or shorten the duration of inflammation and fever due to bacterial and viral infections. A recent double blind study which trialled a combination of Andrographis and Siberian Ginseng to treat upper respiratory tract infections found that the combination significantly reduced symptom severity and shortened recovery time. Andrographolide and its derivatives also have been found to have an anti-HIV effect, limiting the viruses ability to reproduce in the body.
