Andrographis paniculata – one of the most effective plant used as a liver protector

Andrographis paniculata – one of the most effective plant used as a liver protector


Both andrographolides and other compounds in Andrographis paniculata extract demonstrated in modern medical researches that have hepato-protective and hepato-stimulant effects.

Andrographis paniculata has brought clear benefits, consistent and reproducible, in liver impairment induced by alcohol (ethanol), acetaminophen (Tylenol), carbon tetrachloride (CCl4), etc.These hepatotoxic chemicals (alcohol, paracetamol) have different hepatotoxicity mechanisms that suggests Andrographis paniculata and its constituents are not agent-specific but have a broad spectrum of hepato- protective effects.

Studies have shown that preparations based on Andrographis paniculata:

– Were effective in chronic infection with hepatitis B virus,

– Have significant choleretic effects,

– Have demonstrated protective action against increasing serum transaminases induced by prolonged or excessive alcohol consumption

– Led to an improvement in the histological structure of the liver, stimulating liver regeneration

Studies have shown also that Andrographis paniculata extract and andrographolides have hepato-protective effects comparable or even superior to silymarin.

Andrographis paniculata standardized extract is one of the most important extracts from Hepaid Forte composition, contributing significantly to superior clinical efficacy of this natural product for effective protection of the liver. The conclusions brought by current clinical trials show that modern science confirms the traditional use of Andrographis paniculata extract on hepatoprotective products with great efficiency even in the liver disease refractory to newest generation medicine drugs. New multicenter trials are underway to strengthen these conclusions.

Our experience until now with Hepaid Forte confirms or even exceeds the conclusions of these studies, proving to be a NATURAL, VERY EFFECTIVE and SAFE LIVER PROTECTOR.
