Angelica gigas, also known as Korean angelica or gigantic angelica, is a short lived perennial plant thatis used as a major medicinal herb in Korea and China. It is also called ‘Danggwi’ in Korean medicine,and often used as a health supplement for females, and used to improve cardiovascular conditions andimmunity for both men and women. Unlike various western infused teas, this traditional tea, ‘Danggwicha’ is made by gently boiling water for more than several hours. Many oriental doctors still recommend‘Danggwi cha’ as an immune enhancer.
Scientifically, anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory effects of A. gigas were evaluated in cellular levels andanimal tests. Several coumarin derivatives, including decursins, decursinol, decursinol angelate,nodakenin, and nodakenetin were isolated from A. gigas, some of which inhibited the induction ofinflammatory mediators in the LPS-stimulated macrophages. A. gigas extract was also reported tohave anti-allergic effects by inhibiting the release of β-hexosaminidase from mast cells.
