Research Facts
"An oleo-gum-resin obtained from the living rhizome and root of Ferula assafoetida . . . It is in the form of greyish-white or yellow tears with a garlic-like odour and a bitter acrid taste . . . been used as a carminative in the treatment of flatulence and as an expectorant in bronchitis. It was formerly used for its supposed effect in nervous disorders, but any effect it might have in these conditions is attributed to the psychological response to the objectionable odour and taste."
