“Picrorhiza kurroa is a herb from Ayurveda that is commonly called Kutki or Kutaki. It has been a rare and endangered plant for decades. This Kutki is sustainably grown. It contains a 'bitter principle' which is a mixture of two molecules, the irioid glycosides known as picroside I and picroside II (picroside II also being called kutkoside) and the mixture overall is then called kutkin or picroliv. Overall, these are the active components.
The herb itself, due solely to the kutkin molecules, appears to be potently hepatoprotective (protective of the liver) when ingested prior to or taken after exposure to a toxin. The protective effects seem to extend to all tested toxins or stressors that are known to alter liver function, and appear to also extend to states of intrinsic liver dysfunction (viral hepatitis and NAFLD from a high fat diet). Most notably it is protective against Tylenol, alcohol and the deathcap mushroom with a potency that is greater than silymarins (the active parts of milk thistle supplementation).” https://examine.com/supplements/picrorhiza-kurroa/
Kutki is considered Ayurveda’s premier liver tonic, but its benefits reach far beyond the liver.
Traditionally, Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine used it to support healthy liver, digestive, elimination, skin, immunity and respiratory function. By boosting the liver’s natural antioxidant, glutathione, and multiple liver enzymes, it supports detoxification and immunity through both the liver and the lymphatic system.
Here is the short list of kutki benefits:
- Helps shield the liver from toxins, stress and the environment
- Decongests bile and liver ducts, supporting healthy bile flow
- Encourages liver, gallbladder and intestinal detox
- Supports healthy external skin
- Maintains the integrity of the intestinal and respiratory inner skin
- Maintains healthy lymph and immune function
In Ayurveda, herbs are classified by their effects on the 3 doshas: vata, pitta, and kapha. This classification is determined by the taste of the herb, its action in the body, and its post-digestive effect.
Kutki is easygoing and gentle to the intestinal tract, but has powerful effects on the lymph, liver, skin, immunity, lungs, gut, gallbladder, digestion, and much more.
As a potent liver-protectant, kutki helps to shield the body from toxins and the bio-chemistry of stress. The herb also acts to detox environmental toxins. Bitter herbs are extremely cooling, as is kutki, but having pungent (hot-spicy) properties are what make kutki so special and powerful. Its cleansing and detoxing properties come from its pungent properties.
Kutki’s bitter-based, cooling properties make it a perfect, kind and gentle approach to address most pitta imbalances, including acidity issues of the stomach, mild skin irritations, seasonal hypersensitivities to environmental irritants, liver, spleen heat or discomfort.
Kutki is also known as an effective cholagogue. Cholagogues stimulate the healthy downward flow of bile from the liver into the intestines.
By supporting healthy bile flow and decongesting the bile and liver ducts, kutki supports liver, gallbladder, and intestinal detox with each meal.
Kukti, known for supporting external skin concerns, also maintains the integrity of the intestinal and respiratory inner skin barriers that maintain healthy lymph and immune function.
Our innate immunity often fails to respond to a certain environmental factor which triggers the activation of humeral immunity, or the ability to produce immune B-cells cells, to protect the body from a current threat.
In many studies, kutki has been shown to support healthy humeral immunity and, therefore, support a normal immune response to a changing and sometimes toxic environment.
Lymph Mover (Antioxidant)
Kutki has shown in many studies to support antioxidant activity and neutralize free radicals in the body. While kutki is primarily a liver herb, much of its antioxidant activity takes place in the liver and spleen.
The lymph is the body’s first line of defense, as it lines the walls of the intestines. If the intestinal barrier breaks down, the body’s lymphatic system is called upon to support detoxification and antioxidant activity. Kutki may be the best herb to support the body when multiple organs and organ systems are involved.
Often, a digestive concern may be due, in part, to issues in the liver and lymph that are subtle and hard to diagnose.
Kutki provides a multi-pronged approach to help the body address health imbalances holistically without the risk of creating dependency.
Picrorhiza kurroa (Kutki ) is a liver tonic from Ayurveda that, when used at low doses, appears to exceed milk thistle silymarins in potency. It is underresearched, but its liver protective effects and some other immunomodulatory properties hold"Intervention with standardized plant extracts of P. kurroa regressed several features of NAFLD like lipid content of the liver tissue, morphological regression of fatty infiltration, hypolipidemic activity, and reduction of cholestatis.

Picrorhiza kurroa Royle ex Benth is a perennial herb and is traditionally well known in Indian ayurvedic system for the treatment of liver and respiratory disorders.

Of the total 22 iridoid glycosides present in the genus Picrorhiza, P. kurroa posseses 7 distinct iridoid glycosides namely kutkin, kutkoside, picroside V, pikuroside, mussaenosidic acid, bartsioside and boschnaloside . The iridoid glycosides of P. kurroa are monoterpenes biosynthesized from isoprene and typically occur as glycosides. Plants use these glycosides for their protection and defense against infection from different microorganisms and insects. These iridoid glycosides are effective in treating hepatic, inflammatory, bacterial, viral, mutagenic, cancer and other infections" https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0753332218351965?fbclid=IwAR0o-ksFzIACk93SOO-jS_-LjiOlgSeGdqEU75FKSoD9My3SKoqtn3GgOxA
