Les plantes de la famille des Apiacées dans les troubles digestifs

Abstract : Formerly known as Umbelliferae (by their inflorescence umbellate), the Apiaceae are a highly evolved family of plant within angiosperms, used both in medicinal and food areas. In herbal medicine, the Apiaceae are particularly indicated in the treatment of functional digestive disorders due to their essential oils and are used in cases of dyspepsia, flatulence, bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, gastritis, gastroesophageal reflux and colic in infants due to their synergistic properties: eupeptic, spasmolytic, antiseptic and carminative. The plants of this family that have recognized indications in the treatment of functional digestive disorders are dill (Anethum graveolens L.), angelica (Angelica archangelica L.), anise (Pimpinella anisum L.) caraway (Carum carvi L.), coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) and sweet fennel (Foeniculum vulgare Mill. var dulce). Cumin (Cuminum cyminum L.) and fennel (Foeniculum vulgare Mill. var vulgare) are not included in the specification of the Agency book No. 3, 1998, but nevertheless have a significant effect in these digestive disorders. After a review of the current legal status of herbal medicine in France, Apiaceae based medicines and food supplements currently available in Pharmacy are listed with their related advices.
