A popular Japanese rule-of-thumb proverb translates as follows: Good medicine tastes bitter to the mouth. Known as Bile of the Earth to the Malaysians, King of Bitters to the English, and literally Human Gallbladder Grass to the Khmer, the herb Andrographis paniculata is as bitter as they come. Naturally, as you may expect, it also happens to be one of the most promising herbs studied today, as an extremely effective herb for your health challenges.

Andrographis paniculata is native to southern India and Sri Lanka, but today can be found across Asia, Europe, and in the Americas. Its massive migration is attributed entirely to humans, who have cultivated and used the herb as natural medicine.  Andrographis paniculata has existed since the beginning of Aryuvedric medicine, and was renowned as a powerful boost to the bodies own natural immune processes. Even in developing countries today, millions of people rely on plants as their main source of healthcare, where seeds and soil are preferable to drugs and lab-coats. In these nations, Andrographis paniculata is one of the most popular herbs to take. It stands from one to four feet tall in a deep green shade, with the occasional small purple flower or tiny fruit poking out from the side of its thin stem. Its roots are firm and durable, allowing it to grow in most soil types, making it a versatile plant. Every inch of the plant is bitter to the taste, from the roots to the flowers.
