Shrub. The root is used. It contains essential oils, lactones, tannins, coumarins (furanocumarinas), sitosterol. Not to be confused with Chinese angelica (see specific information). Indication from Commission E of the German Ministry of Health: orexigen, spasmolytic, cholagogue. None of the therapeutic properties attributed to it have been scientifically proven. There is very published literature and even less regarding in humans. Furanocoumarins are phototoxic and, together with sun exposure (ultraviolet radiation), are considered to be carcinogenic (EMA 2007). Since the last update we have not found published data on its excretion in breast milk. The lack of literature and the potential carcinogenic risk added to the lack of precise therapeutic indications make it an entirely non-essential product, especially during breastfeeding. Precautions when taking plant preparations: 1. Ensure that they are from a reliable source: poisoning has occurred due to confusing one plant with another with toxic properties, as well as poisoning from heavy metals extracted from the ground and food poisoning due to contamination with bacteria or fungi. 2. Do not take in large amounts; follow recommendations from professional experts in phytotherapy. "Natural" products are not always good in any quantity: plants contain active substances from which much of our traditional pharmacopoeia has been obtained and can result in poisoning or act as endocrine disruptors if taken in excessive amounts or time periods.
