Hey, I'd like to know too. Can andrographis be tinctured for use as a bitter?
Yes, or if you want to avoid the alcohol just put a little powder on your tongue and suck on it for a few seconds before swallowing.
What parts of the plant are the correct parts to use?
The aerial part of the plant.
hve semi-offtopic what part of andrographis is what we need? ive been offered 2 different types of powder aerial powder or whole plant powder. I take it the latter is better?
The upper part of the plant is the part used. When they say whole plant they are referring to the upper part of the plant in this case. The roots are not harvested.
I've also noticed that little aches and pains that I'd simply grown to accept as a part of life are now vanishing as well. This I accredit the andrographis as well as the DE water.
Among andrographis' many properties it is also an anti-inflammatory.
