Angelica

IN THIS ARTICLE

How does Angelica work?

Angelica root might work in premature ejaculation by increasing the threshold of vibrations and senses received by the penis.

Are there safety concerns?

Angelica seems to be safe when used in food amounts, although Canada does not allow the Archangelica species as food ingredients. There isn't enough information to know if angelica is safe when taken by mouth in medicinal amounts.

Angelica root seems to be safe for most adults when used as a cream, short-term.

If you take angelica, wear sunblock outside, especially if you are light-skinned. Angelica might make your skin more sensitive to sunlight.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Angelica may not be safe when taken by mouth during pregnancy. It's suggested that angelica can cause uterine contractions, and this could threaten the pregnancy.

There isn't enough information about the safety of taking angelica if you are breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side, and don't use it.

Dosing considerations for Angelica.

The following doses have been studied in scientific research:

BY MOUTH:
  • For stomach upset: A specific combination product containing angelica (Iberogast, Medical Futures, Inc) and several other herbs has been used in a dose of 1 mL three times daily.
