Andrographis is an Ayurvedic herb which has been used for hundreds of years in Chinese and Indian medicine. It has traditionally been used to help reduce the symptoms associated with the common cold, such as fever, sore throats and coughs. It also aids in recovery from the common cold. Andrographolide, the major active constituent of andrographis, helps to reduce fever and inflammation, as well as stimulating the immune system.
