Organic Kalmegh, andrographis paniculata, in 96 vegetarian capsules
Here is some information about dosage from research done at a hospital in Tennessee. http://thechildrenshospitalnashville.com/hl/?/21485/Andrographis Clinical trials in children with upper respiratory tract infection reported the use of andrographolide 30 mg daily for 10 days according to http://www.drugs.com/npp/kalmegh.html
This is a pretty comprehensive compendium of the many uses of Kalmegh from the point of view of western medicine. https://examine.com/supplements/andrographis-paniculata/
Kalmegh contains a rare plant chemical called andrographolide, which has been found to significantly boost the concentration of certain cancer-fighting cells called cytotoxic T lymphocytes. These lymphocytes circulate in your blood stream and attack any cancerous cells that they encounter. Because it has the ability to stimulate their activity, this means that your body becomes better protected against the disease.
In addition, kalmegh increases the amount of other immune-protective chemicals, such as interleukin-2 and gamma-interferon, which help shield your organs against infection and cancer (Immunopharmacol Immunotoxicol. 2007;29(1):81-93).
In fact, it has been found to be so effective against cancer that drug companies have honed in on its profit potential and created synthetic versions of the plant for the purpose of developing cancer-fighting drugs.
Research on Kalmegh In a research report published by the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Universiti Putra in Malaysia, scientists concluded that: Compounds from this herb were found to be selective towards leukaemia, colon cancer cells, ovarian and renal cancer cells. Analysis indicated that the anti-cancer activities of these new class of compounds were not similar to that of standard anti-cancer agents, suggesting novel mechanisms of action (J. Phytochemistry. 2007 Mar;68(6):904-12).
Here is some information about using it to kill Ebola virus
This research sees benefits of kalmegh (andrographis) for flu, herpes, cancer and AIDS. http://www.altcancer.com/andcan.htm
“Our results suggest that kalmegh leaf extract has more protective action on carbontetrachloride-induced hepatic toxicity than its bitter principle, andrographolide.”http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6513681
“The results of our study suggest that Kalmegh extract protects alcohol-induced toxic-effect in liver tissue.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6672491
“On the total assessment 80% cases of this series were cured and 20% patients were relieved. Therefore, Kalmegh appears to be a useful remedy for the treatment of infective hepatitis.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3336768/
“…the present study revealed that the extracts of A. paniculata or S. chirayita offered protection against hepatotoxicity induced by paracetamol.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21983487
“In the present study, kalmegh (0.01 microg/7ml culture media) was used along with the highest dose of arsenic; the results showed that arsenic induced increase in these genotoxic endpoints were fairly diminished by kalmegh. In addition, mutagenic in vitro effect of ethyl methanesulphonate (EMS) was used as a positive control in this study. It is thus concluded from this study that kalmegh has a protective role in arsenic toxicity.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17482447
The study indicates that the regenerative capability elicited by kalmegh is possibly due to its ability to reactivate liver function enzymes that catalyze the reaction of several biochemical and synthetic processes and that it may be useful for severe liver damage conditions. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19679627
“Oral administration of a single dose of kalmegh leaf extract to adult male albino rats produced a dose-related and time-dependent characteristic activation of brush-border membrane-bound hydrolases, viz. lactase, maltase and sucrase in three regions of small intestine… Maximum stimulation of lactase and maltase was noted after 30 consecutive days of treatment while sucrase exhibited maximum activation after 15 consecutive of treatment with either KE or A. These results suggest that both KE and A accelerate intestinal digestion and absorption of carbohydrate by activating these intestinal disaccharidases. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3938507
