Scientists may have found a herbal medicine which processes strong liver protective effects, some studies suggested.
The hepatoprotective effect is the action of prevention of the liver against liver damage or toxicity.
There is no single cause of liver diseases. Researchers suggested that virus such as hepatitis A, B, C, long-term excessive alcohol drinking and genetic mutation inherited from the parents is the major risk factors associated with the early onset of the diseases.
The herb has been used in traditional Siddha and Ayurvedic in treating the common cold, flu, upper respiratory infections, infectious diseases, diarrhea, dysentery, cholera, pneumonia, swollen lymph nodes, leprosy, bronchitis, sore throats, tuberculosis, chicken pox, etc.
Besides the main ingredient andrographolides, giving the plant a bitter taste, other ingredients include diterpene lactones, such as neoandrographolide, andrographiside, 14-doexy-11, 12-didehydro andrographolide, etc., flavonoids viz., oroxylin, wogonin, andrographidines A, B, C, D, E, F.
As of today, despite enormous advances in modern medicine, conventional medicine can only focus to reduce symptoms of liver diseases. There is no completely effective medicine that can stimulate hepatic function, or offer complete protection of the organ, or help to regenerate hepatic cells.
In the finding of a natural hepatoprotective agent which can help to relieve the pressure of conventional medicine in patients with liver damage or diseases, researchers at the Vinayaka Missions University conducted a study to evaluate the liver protective activity of herbal Andrographis in liver injury in rats.
The ANH showed significantly liver protective effect comparable to the standard drug (Silymarin).
