Andrographis (scientific name: Andrographis paniculata (Burm. f.) Nees), also known as spring lotus and autumn willow, one-seeing delight, elephantine lotus, bitter gallwort, golden herb, golden ear hook, Indian grass, bitter grass, etc. The annual herb, 4 to 8 cm long and 1 to 2.5 cm wide, Andrographis paniculata, which we also call Ichneumonia, Indian grass, quadrangular grass, bitter herb, etc., belongs to the family of the jukebox family.
Andrographis extract has also found some use in veterinary animal husbandry. Not only can it be used as a growth feed additive, but it can also be used in animal husbandry to boost immunity and combat disease.
Andrographis injection is very effective in clearing away heat and toxins and is very effective in treating pneumonia and enteritis in pigs. The use of Andrographis injection and other antibacterial agents to treat dysentery in piglets has been found to be very effective. The combination of Andrographis paniculata, Hypericum perforatum and Radix et Rhizoma Huang is used to treat diarrhoea in pigs and has been found to be very effective and this treatment is free of toxicity as well as side effects. This medicine has a very good inhibiting effect on E. coli and is very economical when fed to sows to prevent yellow and white dysentery in piglets.
After a long period of research, more and more animal experiments have shown that the use of Andrographis in animal treatment is very fast absorbing and long lasting, with no toxic side effects, and that it has a very high number of active ingredients. It has a wide range of active ingredients, not only in terms of immunity and antipyretic effects, but also in terms of anti-inflammatory and antiviral effects. For this reason, Andrographis can be used not only as a growth feed, but also for disease control and immunity enhancement in animals, and there are many different types of Andrographis, including injectable, tablet, bulk and granular. The most common dosage forms used in veterinary practice are injections and tablets. This is why we have to work on developing a new generation of safe and effective Andrographis preparations. This will have a very important impact on the development of our green ecological animal husbandry.
