Gentian root (Radix Gentianae) is one of the strongest bitters known. It embodies the best of the bitters' known characteristics: stomachic, cholagogue, choleretic, sialagogue, secretagogue, appetite stimulant, and digestive tonic. Gentian has given excellent results in the treatment of dyspepsia and several other forms of digestive disease. As a cholagogue its actions is reliable, but not the strongest. The herb has antibacterial properties, and several of its components are anti-inflammatory. It generally stimulates the digestive system and produces a mild rise in blood pressure. Clinical or in vivo tests routinely demonstrate the plant's ability to promote secretion of digestive juices.
