Another new study just came out documenting the incredible effects of the herb Andrographis Paniculata on the immune system. The study reported the following findings:
- Andrographis supplementation increases the production of cytotoxic T cells—an immune cell that destroys caner cells.
- Mice with thymoma—a cancer of the thymus gland (which produces immune cells) live more than twice as long when treated with Andrographis extract for 10 days.
- Andrographis extract exerted beneficial effects on several cytokines (chemical messengers that direct the immune response), resulting in suppression of tumor growth.
I recommend the use of Andrographis anytime you feel signs of flu or cold coming on. I offer an excellent product in my office and in my web store. Since I have been using this product I have not had a cold or flu—2 years!
(NOTE: a very similar study to the one described above was done using another of my favorite herbs, ashwagandha. The results were similar with a large increase in immune function and a suppression of tumor growth—here is a link to that study.)
