Possible antithrombotic effects of Angelica keiskei (Ashitaba)
Angelica keiskei Koidzumi (Ashitaba) is a large perennial herb that is native to the Pacific coast of Japan, and it has recently become popular as herbal medicine, dietary supplement and health food in Asian countries. The structures of various constituents isolated from Ashitaba such as chalcones, flavanones and coumarins have been precisely characterized, and many of them have bioactivities. A recent study clarified that Angelica keiskei exerts actions that lead to the prevention of thrombosis. Here, we introduce the possibility that ingesting Ashitaba could help to prevent thrombotic diseases.
