Cydonia oblonga: antispasmodic actions

This study clearly demonstrates the mild spasmodic property of the Cydonia oblonga seed extract is caused by the activation of muscarinic receptors, while Ca++ antagonist mechanism is possibly responsible for its antispasmodic actions seen in gut and tracheal tissues.
Thus, these data provide a validation for the medicinal use of Cydonia oblonga in gut (diarrhea and constipation) and airways (bronchitis and asthma) disorders.
