Why Is Andrographis Herb Revered In Tradtional Chinese Medicine?

Andrographis in powder form is commonly used to make capsules.  In general terms Andrographis is not drank as a tea, due to the bitterness of the herb. In fact, in Malaysia it is known as Hempedu Bumi, which translates into "Bile of Earth".  Use caution when first using this herb as to much to quickly may cause bowel irritation.  Andrographis is categorized as a "Cold" herb and it is used to rid the body of heat, dispel toxins, and bitter tonic.  In Ayurvedic medicine Andrographis is used to stimulate digestion.

Andrographis, renowned for its potent immune-boosting properties and valuable role in promoting respiratory health, is a prized herbal remedy used to combat a range of ailments including the common cold, influenza, and upper respiratory infections. By harnessing the natural power of Andrographis, individuals can potentially bolster their immune systems and alleviate symptoms associated with respiratory illnesses. The optimal time to leverage the benefits of Andrographis is at the onset of cold or flu symptoms, where its proactive use may assist in mitigating the severity and duration of the illness.
By incorporating Andrographis into one's wellness routine early on, individuals may enhance their immune defenses and foster respiratory wellness.
