AAH_AndrographisLG

Andrographis (Andrographis paniculata) in the acanthus family (Acanthaceae) is an erect, branched annual, 1-3' tall with small pink or white flowers with brown or purple spots. Native to the Indian subcontinent, the aerial parts have many uses, including treating chronic and intermittent fever, sore throat, malaria, inflammation, cough, bronchitis, skin diseases, intestinal worms, dyspepsia, flatulence, colic, colitis, diarrhea, dysentery, urinary infection, and hemorrhoids.

The American Botanical Council (ABC) is passionate about helping people live healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. As an independent, nonprofit education organization, ABC is dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information for consumers, healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators, industry and the media.

Please enjoy this information on andrographis made available through the generosity of Natural Remedies' adoption.
