Centaurium (or centaury herb) is a small bitter herb that grows in the calcareous soils of Europe and the United States of America. There are approximately fourteen species of centaurium in Europe alone, and for medicine the whole herb is used.
Traditional herbalists identify centaurium as a 'stomach bitter' that promotes Digestion & Gut Health.
Centaurium is thought to tighten the sphincter muscle at the top of the tummy, preventing Food from travelling back up through it. This in turn alleviates the symptoms of acid reflux and an acidic stomach.

Centaurium drops can be taken five minutes before you eat your main meal, to potentially treat GI complaints such as bloating, flatulence, and dyspepsia.
