Andrographis paniculata, more commonly known as “the King of Bitters,” has been used for thousands of years in Indian Ayurveda and Chinese medicine. Ancient traditions relied on andrographis as an antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory ingredient, and traditional remedies abounded for use with skin irritations, seasonal challenges and even occasional headaches.
Both the leaves and roots are commonly used for traditional medicine preparations. However, only the leaves contain andrograholide, which is thought to be the active constituent conferring the highest benefits to users.
Organic Paractin® is a patented extract of Andrographis paniculats leaves, standardized to Andrographolide 4-deoxyandrographolide, and Neoandrographolide.
