Gentian is one of the bitter herb greats, used by herbalists for over 2000 years to help stimulate liver function and digestion.
Traditional folk healers believed that gentian root could improve the digestive process by stimulating the flow of saliva, bile and stomach acids if taken before meals. During the Middle Ages, it was used as an antidote to certain poisons.
Today, it is used specifically to protect the liver, stimulate its function, help regenerate its cells and increase the flow of bile.
Actions include: antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and anti-angiogenic properties.
