Don't buy from Wellica, Inc

Don't buy this from Wellica Inc. The andrographis bottle and package arrived smelling strongly of chemicals/perfume, and the safety seal was broken. They also don't accept returns. Otherwise, this would've been a great product. I've tried the brand before and it's good; I'd like to see a brand make the tablets with no stearate in it, though. Himalaya brand used to make it but it's discontinued now.

I took this for a few days but read this study on Andrographis Contraindications for Females Feeding sun-dried Andrographis powder to female mice at a dose of 2 g/kg /day for 6 weeks, then mating them with untreated males of proven fertility, inhibited pregnancy in 100% of the tested animals (R). In has also been reported that administration of Andrographis resulted in abortion in pregnant rabbits. Moreover, the herb is reported to suppress the growth of the human placental chorionic cells (in vitro) (R,R2) . Contraindications for Males is Conflicting Andrographis has shown to reduce Male fertility in Winstar rats (R). Dry leaf powder of Andrographis dosed at 20mg/day for 60 days caused sperm production to stop, and generally altered the health of the male reproductive organs (R).
