Garden Angelica is native to Syria but is known to occur in many parts of Europe and western Asia. Its roots, seeds, leaves, and fruit have been historically used in Nordic folk medicine. Angelica root is the main flavoring ingredient of gin. The roots contain several furocoumarins such as angelicin, bergapten, and xanthotoxin in addition to umbelliprenin and several phenols.

Angelica may be beneficial for indigestion, quitting smoking, excessive urination at night, a decline in memory and thinking skills, and rheumatoid arthritis.
