How Andrographis Helps Improve Immune Health

How Andrographis Helps Improve Immune Health

Andrographis (Andrographis paniculata) is a plant native to India that is also known as green chireta or creat. In India it has traditionally been used in Ayurvedic medicine as a treatment for the common cold and sinus infections.

In a 2010 double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial involving 223 participants, researchers found that andrographis extract decreased the severity of upper respiratory tract infection symptoms compared to the control group.1 In a second study involving 130 children, andrographis extract accelerated the recovery time from the common cold.2

In a review of 7 double-blind controlled trials involving 896 participants, researchers conclude andrographis may be safe and effective for the treatment of upper respiratory tract infection symptoms.3

Researchers in another study found that andrographoloide from andrographis can modulate immune response by regulating macrophage antibody production.4

Multiple studies also report andrographis may have antiviral properties as well.5,6,7

Conclusion

Andrographis may help boost immunity by modulating immune response.
