Andrographis extract 20% | Andrographis paniculata

Properties: “Good medicine is bitter for the mouth” – claims a Japanese proverb. If we were to take this for granted, Andrographis should be treated as a panacea. After all, the name “bitter king” cannot be earned for no reason. It is also the case that Andrographis has a wide spectrum of beneficial effects on the organism. Could it be that this “bitterness” scale is accurate? Let’s take a look.  

The impact of Andrographis herb on the immune system has been carefully investigated. Multiple results unanimously confirm that its traditional application as a remedy for all kinds of infections is actually accurate. It is proven that this herb not only has antimicrobial properties but also enhances the immune system response. For instance, it increases the number of antibodies and limits inflammation. Thereby, it can often help to defeat an infection before it spreads. 

Traditionally, Andrographis has been used to treat disorders of the digestive system. These effects were also verified by modern research findings. Compounds inherent to this herb seem to have protective and regulatory effects on the functioning of the digestive system. They strengthen the mucous membranes, stimulate secretion of digestive acid, and normalize the peristalsis of intestines. Furthermore, Andrographis stimulates the liver and thereby improves the detoxification of the organism 

Panacea is a mythological cure for all diseases and as such, of course, does not exist. On the other hand, the application of “bitterness” scale would overvalue medical properties of IPA beers. Nevertheless, Andrographis is an excellent supplement for immune and digestive systems and its impact on the cardiovascular system is being currently investigated. Therefore, it is definitely worth getting to know the “bitter king” in order to experience all its effects – including the taste of absolute bitterness.

Occurrence: Andrographis paniculata is an annual plant that belongs to the Acanthaceae family. The plant has little, purple flowers clustered into leafy panicles situated on top of its branches and fruits that resemble berries. It grows best in shady, moisty areas where it can reach up to 110 cm. In the wild it can be found in tropical Asian countries: India, Thailand, Sri Lanka. Traditional medicine systems of the Far East: Indian Ayurveda, Persian Umami, and Chinese medicine employ Andrographis as a remedy for various ailments of the respiratory and digestive systems. This herb is also used to relieve viral infections, cold, indigestion, and to strengthen the immune system. It diminishes pain and has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties.

Biochemistry: Andrographis beneficial effects are mostly mediated by andrographolides, neoangapholids, and their derivatives found in the overground part of the plant. In terms of chemistry, these compounds belong to diterpenes. Apart from them, this herb also contains flavonoids, phytosterols, saponins, and tannins.

Fun fact: Andrographis is one of the most bitter herbs. That is why in India it goes by the name of “Maha-tikta”, which literally means “bitter king”. Similarly, in Malesia this herb is referred to as “hempedu bumi”, meaning “the Earth’s bile” in order to highlight its unique bitterness.

How does Andrographis extract 20% | Andrographis paniculata work?

Stimulates the immune system: Results of many scientific studies show that andrographis effectively helps the organism to combat infections such as common cold. Active chemical compounds found in that plant slow down the development of microorganisms that cause diseases. They also stimulate natural defense mechanisms of the immune system by stimulating production of white blood cells. Simultaneously, andrographis prevents the spread of inflammation throughout the body. 

Supports detoxification: There are studies indicating that active compounds found in andrographis are beneficial for the condition and functioning of the liver – one of the key organs involved in detoxification of the whole body. They stimulate secretion of enzymes that neutralize toxic compounds. Moreover, they increase the production of glutathione which is one of the strongest endogenous antioxidants. This compound protects delicate cellular structures, such as DNA or mitochondria, from adverse effects of free radicals. This way, Andrographis paniculata helps to improve overall vitality and well-being.

Helps to control appetite: Traditional systems of herbal medicine that originate from China and India treat andrographis as an appetite enhancer. Modern research indeed demonstrates that this herb might be helpful for those who need to increase their appetite. Moreover, it also stimulates secretion of digestive acids in the stomach, pancreas, and intestines, thereby increasing the speed of digestion. Andrographis limits the amount of gas in the intestines and lowers the risk of colics. Furthermore, it protects the mucosa of the stomach and guts. For all these reasons, it is helpful in ailments such as indigestion, diarrhea, and constipation.

Improves condition of the circulatory system: Many research studies investigated the impact of andrographis on the heart and the whole vascular system. The results prove that active compounds present in that plant help to control and stabilize blood pressure. Traditionally, andrographis was prescribed to patients who had higher levels of triglycerides in the blood. The results of pilot studies trying to verify this effect seem to confirm it. On top of that, the anti-inflammatory properties of andrographis support the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
