The genus of Prangos consists of about 30 species, 15 of which are growing wildly in many regions of Iran. Prangos ferulacea (L.) Lindl. with the common Persian name of "Jashir" is a perennial and aromatic plant from Apiaceae (Umbelliferae) family which is native to the mountains of southern Iran. P. ferulacea has been used in folk medicine as emulient, carminative, tonic, sedative, antiflatulent, anti-helmintic, antibacterial, antispasmodic, and antidiabetic agents. Monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, coumarines, flavonoids, alkaloids, tannins, saponins, and terpenoids are some important compounds identified in this plant. Previous researches indicated that antioxidant properties of this plant were higher than α-tocopherole (vitamin E) and the main compounds of P. ferulacea in different growth stages were monoterpenes, specially α-pinene, and β-pinene. The present article aimed to examine the extensive pharmacologic active factors existing in this plant and its potential efficacy mechanisms to be used in medical and pharmacological works in the future.
