Angelica dahurica is a herb species of theAngelica genus. It is widely cultivated in NorthEastern China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Siberia, Russia,the Far East, and Mongolia. It is also known as Chinese Angelica and Bai Zhi in the Chinese language.

With a long tradition of usage, Angelica dahurica's root is known for its warm, and spicy flavor. Nearly three hundred chemical components from Angelica dahurica have been found so far. However, the main active substances in these components are coumarins and volatile oils. A. dahurica's root additionally contains traces of other medicinal substances, including alkaloids, sterols, benzofurans, phenols, and polyacetylenes.

Today, knowledge about Angelica dahurica roots that have been passed down through many ancient texts or experiences with ethnic medicine is widely known. Yet, only a small number of texts mention the chemical makeup of the extracts. As a result, more research is still needed to determine the therapeutic effects and capacities of A. dahurica root.

Interestingly enough, Angelica dahurica was additionally employed as a sedative and liqueur, which has no mention in Chinese traditional medicine texts. Its wild variant frequently grows in dense forests, woodland edges, streams, bushes, and even hillside valleys. Similarly, despite Angelica dahurica's advantageous chemical components and bioactivities having been extensively studied, a thorough review of its edible properties is lacking.

The roots of this herb havean analgesic and an anti-inflammatory effect.It is widely used in Southeast Asia for medicinal purposes such as treating neuralgia, rheumatism, and skin disorders. It also has a potential effect on skin whitening and moisturizing. Researchers are actively engaged in exploring ways to use these herbs in health and beauty segments.

In China and some South East Asia countries, the famous Yuanhu Zhitong pill has been readily used to treat stomach pain, chest muscle inflammation, headaches, and abdominal cramps. It is known to be a polyherbal Chinese medicine made combining Angelica dahurica of 223 g and Rhizoma Corydalis of 445 g after treating with vinegar. Its use to treat degenerative joint diseases or wear and tear of bones is likewise well-established for a long time.

Tang, a biochemist, is currently working on a quality control technique for quantitative and qualitative examination of the Yuanhu Zhitong tablet. He used a photo-diode-array detector and tandem mass spectrometry to determine "common peaks" in the chemical fingerprint of the Yuanhu Zhitong tablet. It is predicted that commercial interest could offer a fresh perspective for future research on its chemical components as well as biological functions.

Modern pharmacological studies have also shown that its active ingredients exhibited a variety of bioactivities, affecting the cardiovascular system, nervous system, and liver system. These bioactivities included anti-tumor, analgesic activity, anti-oxidation, antiviral and antimicrobial effects on skin diseases, and so forth.

Various Southeast Asian companies are actively manufacturing Angelica-basedmedicines and skin whitening creams from dahurica root extracts,as it has an inhibitory effect on melanogenesis in B16 melanoma cells. Major opportunities exist for exporters of Angelica dahurica extracts across the globe. Currently, the usage of this herb is in the nascentstageand is used for commercial purposes.However, the demand for Angelica dahurica is projected to witnessa double-digit growth rate over the next six years due to growth in demand for herbal medicines and cosmetics.The market for Angelica Dahurica can be segmented by applications as healthcare, cosmetics, food, and others.

One of the restraints in this market includes packaging and labeling of herbal medicines. In addition, consumers are advised to be cautious as consumption of herbal medicines can interfere with allopathic medicines and lead to some side effects.Lipoquimia, Grupo Nutramex, Future Foods, Neelam phyto-extracts, and Guangzhou Herbs-Ex are some suppliers of Angelica dahurica extract.
