Today I’m thinking of all-natural herbal supplements. Of course, always consult your health-care professional before taking herbs or supplements, but keep a bottle of andrographis at hand if you need something that stimulates immunity. Andrographis has long been used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine traditions for treating colds, sinus issues and other more concerning airborne illnesses. It contains a number of bitter constituents that embrace both anti-inflammatory and immune stimulating properties. Recent research have found that andrographis may even help to reduce symptoms of influenza, which might explain why the Swedes have used this supplement as a primary herb to ward off common winter ailments.
