Ammi visnaga



SD aerial parts


In Egypt, a tea made from the fruit of this species has been used as an herbal remedy for kidney stones.[4]

Preparations of Ammi visnaga fruits have also been used for angina pectoris therapy.[5]

Khellin, a chemical compound obtained from A. visnaga, was used at one time as a smooth muscle relaxant, but its use is limited due to adverse side effects.[8] Amiodarone and cromoglycate are synthetic derivatives of khellin with fewer side effects which were developed for use in modern medicine.[medical citation needed]

Visnagin is another chemical compound which is found in A. visnaga.[9] Visnadine is a natural vasodilator found in A. visnaga.
