8) Conclusion

Herbal medicine is enjoying great popularity today, in a context where natural products (irrespective of the applicability domain) are favored to others. Angelica Root is an organic liquid extract, advertised as a potent and easily absorbable formulation. A downside to this product is the fact that the manufacturer mentions no benefits or makes no ailment claims. External research reveals that Angelica Root has multiple health benefits, from indigestion to stress. However few to none are supported by actual evidence. This is why we highly recommend that after doing your research you talk to a specialist and decide if this is a suited alternative treatment.
