Swollen glands gone
Posted by Jeanne1974 on Jul 19, 2014
After having swollen glands for about five years and continual sore throats, I decided to try the Lyme disease protocol by herbalist Buhner. After a few days of Andrographis and Cat's Claw, one three times a day, I noticed I was beginning to feel well and not weak and sickly all the time. I will continue on this product for a year as Buhner suggests. Update: It is the cat's claw that helps, and not this. I have discontinued this.

This has a bitter taste but it probably acts faster than capsules. It's a good price.
Worst Andrographis I ever purchased

Andrographis is a powerful herb, but that doesn't mean that ground up leaves and stems put into tablet form is going to be effective. In order to work properly -- to provide the wonderful sinus clearing and immune response that it's known for -- you have to extract the major ingredient and provide that via supplement. Other companies (Jarrow is one) do this. For some reason, Planetary Herbals has the idea that you just just mash up the Andrographis plant and put it into a big hard-to-swallow tablet, and get some benefit. That's not the case. This product is the clear result of a company that did not investigate the herb, and one that thinks they can simply pack-and-ship in the lowest cost methods possible. They mention that the Swedish use Andrographis. That may be only partially true. The Swedish Herbal Institute sold a lot of a product called Kan Jang -- in Sweden, that's a liquid that does NOT contain andrographis. That's because Andrographis is so bitter and nasty tasting. They NEVER put Andrographis into Kan Jang -- that is, until it became a Tablet that was sold in other parts of the word. And that Kan Jang tablet had a coating on it that prevented your tongue from picking up the horrible, horrible taste. It was also a tablet that contained another herb, Eleutherococcus, which was quite important in the pairing and not just a minor ingredient. Here, this company is simply packaging one-half of the famous Swedish formula (the Andrographis), and they are not even spending the .0001 cent to coat the tablet so that you can't taste it. Folks, this will literally make you vomit. It's the worst tasting tablet you've ever placed in your mouth. You'll be dying for water in half a second. Bad product, bad formulation. For a good Andrographis, buy an Andrographis Extract, and not a whole leaf formula like this.

I am using this and when many people at work got sick (probably flu), I did not. As for the taste, it is bitter but it is not so bad as one of the reviewers complained - I plan to buy this one again when it is back in stock.
