Queasy tummy? Nausea? Not digesting well? Take a little Gentian 15 minutes to an hour before you eat your meal and see what it can do to help you. It gets those digestive juices flowing and speeds up a sluggish digestion. It even helps with flatulence! That’s got to be a good thing.
Each ml contains 250 mg of organically grown gentian root (Gentiana lutea) in a non-medicinal base of 40% grain alcohol and purified water, with organically grown licorice root as a natural flavour enhancer.
Gentian is used traditionally in Herbal Medicine to aid digestion and help relieve digestive upset.
Adults 18 and over: take 1 ml, 3 times per day, 15-60 minutes before meals.
For best absorption, squirt the tincture under your tongue and hold it there for a few seconds, then swallow. If you want to remove the alcohol, add the dosage to a half cup of freshly boiled water. The alcohol will evaporate off. Let it cool, and drink as a medicinal tea!
Caution: Do not use gentian if you are pregnant, have acute stomach irritation, inflammation or stomach or duodenal ulcers. Please talk to your healthcare practitioner before using gentian if you are breastfeeding. And always talk to your healthcare practitioner if your symptoms hang on or get worse!
