Angelica is useful for indigestion, gas and colic.
Angelica root stimulates the appetite, relieves mild stomach discomforts, and is used with certain kinds of angina, chest pains caused by atherosclerosis. Angelica root can be taken in the form of a fluid extract or as a tincture, which is an extract in an alcohol base.
Angelica contains at least 15 compounds that act as calcium-channel blockers, which cause smooth muscles in the uterus, intestines, arteries, and elsewhere to relax. Angelica can curtail the activity of intestinal worms, kill fungi, trigger the secretion of gastric juices, and combat stomach spasms. Recent studies have shown that Angelica root can lower blood pressure.
