Asafoetida is routinely used as a carminative and substitute for garlic in many Asian countries. In both India and China it is often favored over garlic, which is looked down upon by Brahmin, Taoist and Buddhist priests probably because of the strong odor it leaves on the breath. Asafoetida has a similarly strong odor and flavor but will not remain on the breath. In Western countries, it is an important ingredient in Worcestershire sauce.

Asafoetida, having warming antispasmodic properties, can be useful for hysterical symptoms, hypoglycemia, Candida albicans overgrowth, coldness, coughs and coughs. Called "hing" in Sanskrit, it is the primary ingredient in "hinga-shtak," the most famous digestive formula in India. In this form it is taken as a pill or powder, or it is mixed with food to help avoid gas, aid digestion and alleviate the mood drop and loss of energy that follow eating certain foods. Thus asafoetida, or hinga-shtak, are effective as carminatives in regulating chi and helping to overcome food allergies.

Commonly called Devil's dung or Gum asafoetida, the gum resin of this herb can be used to help support gas, weak digestion, food sensitivities, hysteria and mood swings, candida albicans overgrowth, hypoglycemia, colds and coughs. Its digestant, carminative, aromatic, antispasmodic, and expectorant properties have a positive effect on the liver, stomach, and digestive tract. Its biochemical components include an essential oil, resin, ferulic acid, glue, secbutyipropenyl disulfide, and farnesiferol.

Asafoetida
Ferula assa-foetida L.

Family: Apiaceae.

Other Names: Devil's dung; férule persique, ase fétide (French) Stinkasant, Teufelsdreck (German); assafetida (Italian).

Description: An erect perennial herb of up to 2 m in height, with a fleshy taproot, deeply dissected leaves and inconspicuous yellow flowers borne in compound umbels. Asafoetida or similar oleogum resins are obtained from F. assa-foetida, F. foetida and F. narthex; gum galbanum from F. galbaniflua (= F. gummosa) and F. rubicaulis.

Origin: Iran and Asian deserts. The various Apiaceae gums are produced from wild plants in a large area that stretches from Iran to Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.

Parts Used: Oleogum resin (devil's dung - Asa foetida), obtained as secretions of the upper parts of the roots of the plants by incision.

Therapeutic Category: Carminative, antispasmodic, expectorant.

Uses and Properties: Asafoetida can be used to help support dyspepsia with flatulent colic, but also to help support coughs, coughs and nervous disorders. Externally it is counter-irritant. Despite being considered the most foul smelling of all natural substances, it is widely used as a natural food flavourant. Galbanum is said to be a digestive stimulant with antispasmodic, carminative and expectorant properties. It has wound-mending properties and can be used in perfumes as a fixative and to give a grassy note.

Active Ingredients: These oleoresin gums have a complex composition; they contain sesquiterpene-coumarin ethers (such as asacoumarin B and farnesiferol A-C), and a volatile oil rich in sulphurous compounds, with which the smell and positive health activity of asafoetida and galbanum are associated: disulphides and polysulphanes in asafoetida; propenyldisulphides with various other compounds in galbanum.

Health Effects: The disulphides can open and form new disulphide bonds with proteins and thus alter the activity of enzymes, receptors etc. This would explain the wide variety of symptoms supported with asafoetida. Support for respiratory ailments is a common theme, and this may be linked to the sulphur compounds that are partly excreted through the lungs.

Status: Traditional health; Pharm.

Preparation and Dosage: Powdered asafoetida can be taken in doses of 0.3 - 1 g, three times per day (or as 2 - 4 mL of a strong liquid extract).

Dosage: 100 milligrams to 1 gram of the powdered gum steeped in boiling water or added to food.

My review won't do you much good. I bought the Asafaetida for a friend whose mother made her wear an "Asafaetida bag" when she got sick as a child - folk medicine. We joked about it so much I decided to look for some and send it to her for nostalgia sake. I have no idea what the hell it is, but it seemed to be the genuine article. I googled Asafaetida and found you. But I couldn't find an Asafaetida BAG to make the joke complete! No complaints. On time delivery. Good background info on Asafaetida provided by one of your staff.

MY REVIEW WON'T DO YOU MUCH GOOD.
