Product Details

Gentian root extract is derived from the roots of various Gentiana plant species, perennial herbaceous plants belonging to the Gentianaceae family. This extract has been used for centuries in traditional medicine and has gained attention for its potential health benefits in recent years. Gentian root extract contains several active compounds, including:

  • Iridoids: These are a group of naturally occurring compounds found in Gentiana species, such as gentiopicroside, amarogentin, and swertiamarin. They are believed to be responsible for many of the therapeutic properties of gentian root.
  • Xanthones: These are polyphenolic compounds with antioxidant properties, such as gentisine and isogentisine.
  • Secoiridoids: These are another class of compounds present in gentian root, including gentiopicrin and amarogentin.
