Bitter Tonic Helps You Digest Heavy, Fatty Meals

  • Promotes fat & protein digestion
  • Strengthens stomach functions
  • Supports liver & gallbladder health

Gentian root provides superior digestive support, particularly for protein, heavy-to-digest, large, fatty or rich meals. It stimulates the production of beneficial stomach acids and digestive enzymes, as well as alleviates bloating, gas, and nausea.

Herbalists suggest taking Gentian 10-15 minutes before meals to encourage proper digestion. Its bitter principles go to work quickly and provide long-lasting support.

For those brave enough to brew an herbal decoction, aromatic herbs such as Cardamom, Cinnamon, and Ginger will improve the taste. Or you can try our convenient high-potency capsules or fast-acting liquid extract.

ALSO KNOWN AS: Bitter Root, Gentian, Sampson Snake Root, Yellow Gentian.
