European centaury or common centaury is a member of the Gentianaceae family. It contains essentially the same phytochemicals as its cousin yellow gentian and thus can be used interchangeably in practice as a digestive bitter. German Commission E approved centaury to loss of appetite & peptic discomfort. No published clinical trials could be found for this herb.
