DETERMINATION OF MORPHOLOGICAL AND ANATOMIC SIGNS OF CYNOGLOSSUM OFFICINALE L. (ВORAGINACEAE)Abstract
The expansion of research on finding herbal sources for producing new effective and safe medicinal herbal remedies is an urgent pharmacy task. One of the ways to increase the amount of herbal medicinal preparations is a broad study of the pharmacological action of non-pharmacopoeial medicinal plants used in folk medicine. One of these plants is Black root officinalis (Cynoglossum officinale), which grows wild in the European part of Russia, Siberia, Central Asia, and the Caucasus, including North Ossetia, but does not form significant thickets. Today Cynoglossum officinale is used mainly in folk medicine as an anti-inflammatory, analgesic, sedative, and expectorant. When applied externally, Cynoglossum exhibits antipruritic properties and is capable of tissue regeneration. Therefore, the pharmacognostic study for further research on pharmacological effects on the human body is quite promising.
