fig8: Two forms of curcumin of Curcuma longa. The keto-enol form is more preferable [7].

Mentions: Andrographis paniculata, the aerial parts, contained total lactones not less than 6% (calculated as andrographolide, Figure 8). The indications cover the relief of noninfectious diarrhea, with the daily dose ranging from 2 to 8 g and the relief of common cold, with the daily dose ranging from 6 to 12 g. The lactones have weak antimicrobial activity. The therapeutic effect may also be due in part to other activities as well, such as anti-inflammatory and immunostimulatory effects. A review of this botanical is published as a monograph in the WHO Monographs on Selected Medicinal Plants volume 2.
