Andrographis General Information
Andrographis is the herb of Andrographis paniculata, a flowering plant in the Acanthaceae family. The perennial grows wild in thickets throughout south Asia, although it also may be cultivated. In summer and autumn, clusters of small white flowers appear, it is harvested when the flowers begin to bloom. In Mandarin, Andrographis is called chuan xin lian, Yi jian xi and lan he lian, which translates to “Thread the heart lotus.” Sometimes called “Indian Echinacea”, Andrographis is a shrub found throughout India and other Asian countries most commonly used in epidemics. Andrographis was credited with stopping the spread of the 1919 flu epidemic.
