Thailand: Herbal Product and Regulatory Compliance
Studies conducted in Thailand have revealed that Thai herbs, e.g., Andrographis Paniculata (Burm.f.) and fingerroot (Kaempfer or Boesenbergia rotunda) can treat COVID-19 symptoms, and there have been some indications that these herbs may be able to suppress SARS-CoV-2 and stop the virus from replicating.
The COVID-19 pandemic in Thailand, along with results from research into Thai herbal remedies has led to the increase in the sale of Thai herbs. As such, many players in this area should be aware of the regulatory framework for the production and sale of such products in Thailand.
