In 2018 I became sick with a mystery flu-like illness and remained ill with bronchitis and an ear infection for 3 months. A month later it came back for another 2 months. During that time I tried many different immune support supplements and began researching like crazy. This is one that I started taking in 2019 and I have stayed healthy throughout this pandemic, thank G*d. I have since ditched all of my immune support supplements except Andrographis, Homeopathic Cold Tablets +Zinc, NAC and L-Lysine. I really feel like (after prayer) the Andrographis is the main player and I start taking it as soon as I feel a little tickle in my throat or after exposure to illness.
If I took two caps it gave me nausea and dropped my blood pressure. Although I do have a problem with low blood pressure, so something as potant as this triggered it. Just a warning who anyone who's sensitive. But when I was ok taking one cap I was ok! However one cap isnt enough to boost immune system to fight colds and defaintly not viruses. It did reduce my cold slighlty when i was taking 2. But not for long until i had to stop, I figured it's not unsuitable for me. If you appreciate my review I'd appreciate thumbs up please thank you!
I’d like to keep this on hand especially around colder seasons as kids bring home some germs from schools at times. Sometimes they get the sniffles and when it lasts a while or see that it’s getting progressively worse I will have them take this. I like that I won’t have to rely on antibiotics (ones prescribed by doctors) which are harmful to one’s body when taken for a longer period of time. I also heard that they can also destroy the culture in one’s digestive system and so it’s so helpful that one can rely on all natural products like this one when there is a need.
Andrographis possesses antiviral, antibacterial, and immune stimulating actions. It should be in every immune boosting stack. Andrographis can be combined with other immune modulating herbs, such as artemisia annua or astragalus. I only wish iherb would also stock an andrographis tincture.
Decided to try this from my findings that it could relieve symptoms of the common cold and flu. I wanted to try something that could hopefully ease the symptoms once I already have a cold. So this is in my ‘for colds’ pantry.
