Thursday 5/15/2008 Andrographis and Free Radical Protection

New research sheds more light on how Andrographis Paniculata benefits your health.  You'll recall from previous blogs that Andrographis is the most beneficial herb known for the treatment and prevention of cold and flu.  Several studies done over the past few months show that Andrographis causes your body to produce more glutathione--your body's most powerful antioxidant and detoxifier.  For more on Glutathione read my Antioxidant ArticleGlutathione powerfully protects your body from free radicals and helps you to process and and excrete toxins.

One of the new studies showed that the increased glutathione levels from Andrographis supplementation provide protection to your heart after a heart attack (read the study), and another shows that it protects the liver from injury (read the study).

This powerful herb should be in every medicine cabinet.  It is extremely bitter as a powder--I carry an excellent pill-extract in my webstore--check it out
