Andrographis paniculata is a herb that is known for its incredibly bitter taste, as well as many valuable properties. It is most commonly recommended for bacterial, viral, and fungal infections, fatigue and cancer. It is anti-inflammatory, detoxifies the body, and stimulates the appetite, thanks to which it is very helpful in the treatment of digestive disorders. Andrographis is also very effective in the treatment of Lyme disease, and is one of the top herbs recommended by Stephen Buhner. Additionally, the herb lowers blood pressure and has a protective effect on the liver, which is why it is also recommended as a treatment for diseases of the pancreas, liver, and diabetes.
