Andrographis (or chuan xin lian in Chinese medicine) has been dubbed “Indian echinacea” for its benefits as a cold and flu remedy from the Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine herbal traditions.  It has been shown to have broad-spectrum antiviral effects with its ability to diminish viral replication while supporting immune system function.

It is very bitter tasting and “cold” energetically which makes it a powerful fever reducer and antimicrobial plant medicine.  It is a top herb for swollen lymph glands, sore throat, and a “strep throat” or viral  presentation.

It is effective against a wide range of bacteria and parasites, including MRSA, E. Coli, Pseudomonas and Staphylococcus species.

It is a well-regarded herb for the treatment of Lyme-Borreliosis, and supports the clearance of endo-toxins due to die-off, which helps to manage uncomfortable Herx reactions.

Andrographis can support treatment of a wide array of inflammatory conditions, including ulcerative colitis, urinary tract and upper respiratory tract infections, herpes, liver and gallbladder inflammation, and eczema.



Andrographis paniculata, distilled water, and certified organic cane alcohol.
