The release of nitric oxide may be mediated via phosphodiasterase inhibition which prolongs the activity of cGMP and cAMP intracellularly. Centella asiatica may also be specific for injury to nerves and highly innervated areas by promoting axonal regeneration.

Lomatium dissectum contains a relatively uncommon water soluable coumarin apiose. Effects of osthol on blood pressure and lipid metabolism in stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats.

And the seeds of many of the Apiacea species such as the culinary species are fairly nourishing containing macrominerals such as Calcium, Zinc, Iron, Sulfer Mangesium, and Potassium, and trace minerals such as phosphorus, chromium, manganese, boron, fluoride, selenium, cobalt, lithium, rubidium silicon and copper. Apiaceae family plants are noted to accumulate flavinoids, mainly in the form of flavones and flavonols, many having significant antioxidant and antiinolammatory effects.


Modern molecular investigations, however, find that these categories do not necessarily make sense according to chemical constituent groupings.

Some research has suggested that furanochromones form photoadducts with DNA of microbes and therby are able to kill pathogens. Research into how estrogens and adrogens might activate cholinergic activity is underway. Lothario Meissner, – Jd. Blood glucose and liver enzymes were also noted to improve. Centella has been shown useful in promoting epithelial regeneration following frrom.

Apiaceae Coumarin and Vascular Effects Coumarins from Angelica species have been noted to posess platelet anti-aggregating effects either equal to or greatly surpassing that of aspirin. These infloresences may hold themselves in a shape quite spherical, a shape that is broad and disk-like, an umbel with a flat top, an fom with a rounded top, or as an umbel with a sphere on the tip of each ray.
