What are centaurium drops used for?

These drops may help to tone up someone with a 'sluggish' Digestion and enhance their appetite - an action which may be beneficial in children who are picky eaters, or adults recovering from illnesses. This stomach bitter improves digestion by increasing the secretion of digestive enzymes and increasing gut motility. These actions, mediated via the hormone gastrin, enhance the breakdown of food which then helps to relieve symptoms of indigestion such as nausea, flatulence, fullness and gastric discomfort. Another important function of gastrin is to tighten the oesophageal sphincter. This reduces the tendency for reflux of the gastric contents into the oesophagus, a condition which is seen with hiatus hernia and other causes of reflux, which give rise to the symptoms of heartburn.

How do you take centaurium drops?

It can be taken by adults and children over the age of two years, with a little water, at least five minutes before a main meal. It should be sipped and held in the mouth before swallowing, to stimulate its action.
