Gentian can be useful as a blood-builder and has been popular to use during convalescence. Gentian strengthens the entire system even when given in moderate doses. One way it does this is by stimulating general circulation. Gentian is also high in simple energy producing sugars. It has been found that Gentian root increases the activities of many glands and organs.
Gentian stimulates the appetite and can be given for anorexia and exhaustion. It strengthens the digestive organs while improving the vascular system to that the digestive tract receives a rich supply of blood and the digested nutrients are all absorbed. It also appears to have a mildly cleansing effect on the bowels. It is effective in slowly cleansing the hardened morbid mater lining the colon.
