Gentian Root is a European native herb once used in beer brewing like hops. The root is also a featured ingredient in traditional herbal bitters, most notably the angostura bitters produced in the Bahamas. Since the formula is only known to a few people still living, you'll have to experiment with our dried gentian root to make your own herbal bitters and tea blends.
Precautions - Gentian root is not intended for long-term use. Do not use this herb if you have a history of gastric or duodenal ulcers
