Centaury is one of the classic bitters. Its taste is clear, cold, and cutting. Bitters like this will stimulate digestive secretions throughout the GI tract, helping you assimilate the nutrients from your food. They are also strongly drying and draining to stagnant fluids; centaury is helpful for mitigating fluid retention and edema. In addition, centaury is a stomachic herb – it strengthens the stomach in those who have weak digestion.
