|Abstract:||Russian Tarragon, Artemisia dracunculus Linn. has a traditional Persian history of use as a natural cleanser of the blood and for the treatment of headaches and dizziness. Studies done on rats showed that an extract of this artemisia has anticoagulatory and anti-hyperlipidemic activities. Thus the extract appear potentially useful as agent to help decrease the incidence of coronary disease in humans since a reduction in serum cholesterol of 15% and serum triglycerides of 25% was observed in rats treated with extract and maintained on a hyperlipidemic diet.|
