AIM OF THE STUDY Coriander (Coriandrum sativum) is traditionally used for various gastrointestinal and cardiovascular disorders and this study was designed to rationalize its use in dyspepsia, abdominal colic, diarrhea, hypertension and as diuretic. MATERIALS AND METHODS Coriander crude extract (Cs.Cr) was evaluated through in vitro and in vivo techniques. RESULTS Cs.Cr caused atropine sensitive stimulatory effect in isolated guinea-pig ileum (0.1-10 mg/ml). In rabbit jejunum preparations… 
Evaluation of gut modulatory and bronchodilator activities of Amaranthus spinosus Linn.
TLDR
Results indicate that A. spinosus possesses laxative activity partially mediated through cholinergic action, while bronchodilator activity through a combination of β-adrenergic and CCB pathways, which may explain the traditional uses of A.spinosus in gut and airways disorders.
Hypotensive and diuretic activities of aqueous-ethanol extract of Asphodelus tenuifolius
TLDR
The results suggest that the extract of A. tenuifolius has hypotensive and diuretic effects in animals and produced dose-dependent stimulant followed by depressant effects in spontaneously contracting rabbit’s paired atria preparations.
Vasorelaxant Effects of Coriandrum SativumL. Extract onRat Isolated Aorta
Aim: Coriander(Coriandrum sativum L.) is an annual plant belonging to the family Umbelliferae, which distributed in Central and Western Europe, India, Bangladesh, Thailand, China, and other Asian
Antihypertensive and Diuretic Effects of the Aqueous Extract of Colocasia esculenta Linn. Leaves in Experimental Paradigms
TLDR
The results of the present study revealed the antihypertensive and weak diuretic activity of AECE, which may be attributed to the ACE inhibitory, vasodilatory, β-blocking, and/ or Ca2+ channel blocking activities reported for the phytoconstitunts.
Hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects of Coriandrum sativum L. in Meriones shawi rats.
TLDR
Sub-chronic administration of CS-extract in OHH Meriones shawi rats normalized glycemia and decreased the elevated levels of insulin, IR, TC, LDL-cholesterol and TG, validates the traditional use of coriander in diabetes.
Cardio protective effect of Coriandrum sativum L. on isoproterenol induced myocardial necrosis in rats.
TLDR
The results show that methanolic extract of CS is able to prevent myocardial infarction by inhibiting myofibrillar damage and, the rich polyphenolic content of CS extract is responsible for preventing oxidative damage by effectively scavenging the IP generated ROS.
Evaluation of prunes for hypotensive, angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory and diuretic activities in rats
TLDR
It is concluded that the crude extract of prunes has hypotensive and ACE inhibitory activities, which provides scientific justification for its traditional uses as cardioprotective and antihypertensive remedy.
Diuretic Activity of Trianthema portulacastrum Crude Extract in Albino Rats
Purpose: To evaluate the diuretic effect and acute toxicity of the crude aqueous extract of Trianthema portulacastrum in a rat model. Method: Albino rats were divided into five groups. Control group
Rationalizing ethnopharmacological uses of Alternanthera sessilis: A folk medicinal plant of Pakistan to manage diarrhea, asthma and hypertension.
TLDR
The authors' results reflected presence of Ca(++) channel blocking (CCB) activity in As.Cr, thus rationalizing medicinal use of Alternanthera sessilis in diarrhea, asthma and hypertension.
Pharmacological Evaluation of Coriander Seeds against High Fat Diet-Induced Cholelithiasis
TLDR
The data obtained from the current study justified the therapeutic importance of Coriandrum sativum against cholelithiasis, however, further studies are required to explore the underlying mechanism and to separate active compound(s) responsible for the antilithic potential of C. satvum.

TLDR
The results indicate the presence of calcium antagonist(s) in Carum copticum seeds and thus provides sound mechanistic basis for some of their folkloric uses.
Presence of cholinergic and calcium channel blocking activities explains the traditional use of Hibiscus rosasinensis in constipation and diarrhoea.
TLDR
Data indicate that the crude extract of Hibiscus rosasinensis Linn contains spasmogenic and spasmolytic constituents mediating their effect through cholinergic receptors activation and blockade of Ca(2+) influx, respectively, which may explain its traditional use in constipation and diarrhoea.

TLDR
Data indicate that the blood pressure-lowering effect of ginger is mediated through blockade of voltage-dependent calcium channels.
Ca2+ antagonist and cholinergic activities explain the medicinal use of olive in gut disorders
TLDR
It is indicated that olives contain spasmolytic (Ca 2+ antagonists) and spasmogenic (cholinergic) constituents, which provides a scientific base for its medicinal use in gastrointestinal disorders, such as abdominal colic, diarrhea, and constipation.
Acute diuretic effect of continuous intravenous infusion of an aqueous extract of Coriandrum sativum L. in anesthetized rats.
TLDR
The aqueous extract of coriander seed possesses diuresis, excretion of electrolytes, and glomerular filtration rate in a dose-dependent way, validating the use of Coriander as a diuretic plant in Moroccan pharmacopoeia.
Studies on spasmogenic and spasmolytic activities of Calendula officinalis flowers
TLDR
The data indicate that the crude extract of Calendula officinalis flowers contains both spasmolytic and spasmogenic constituents, exhibiting these effects through calcium channel blocking and cholinergic activities and this study provides a scientific base for its traditional use in abdominal cramps and constipation.
Pharmacological basis for the empirical use of Eugenia uniflora L. (Myrtaceae) as antihypertensive.
TLDR
The results suggest that the empirical use of Eugenia uniflora L. (Myrtaceae) as antihypertensive in Northeastern Argentina is mostly due to a hypotensive effect mediated by a direct vasodilating activity, and to a weak diuretic effect that could be related to an increase in renal blood flow.
Diuretic effect of the aqueous extract of Bidens odorata in the rat.
TLDR
It is suggested that the aqueous extract of Bidens odorata induce diuretic response and this increase was dose dependent and aqueously extract at the highest dose induced a more marked sodium and water excretion than furosemide, potassium excretion increased but it was less than the one induced by furoSemide.
Diuretic effects of selected Thai indigenous medicinal plants in rats.
TLDR
Results indicate that two of the plants investigated exert their action by causing diuresis, and the other three plants need further investigation to determine their effectiveness in the treatment of dysuria.
