• Traditionally used to help support loss of appetite, digestion, constipation, recovery from illness and much more.
Centaury, called Canchalagua in its native Chile, is a small, herbaceous plant. It has sharply pointed green leaves and produces small pink or yellow flowers. A related species is found in southern Algeria, where its roots are used as a yellow dye.

Topically, Chilean Centaury is often used to help support dandruff, fight lice, help promote the rejuvenating of wounds, and in the reduction of skin blemishes. Since it is a digestive and stomachic stimulant, Centaury is indicated primarily in lack or loss of appetite (anorexia), and for any sluggish digestive activity (recommended to be taken as a bitter tonic about ten minutes before meals). It has been used in combination with Burdock Root and Chamomile to stimulate liver action. Centaury also acts as a mild laxative. It is often combined with Meadowsweet or Althea Root to help support dyspepsia. In Chile, Centaury can be used as a general tonic and a blood purifier. Centaury also works to strengthen the bladders of the elderly and those with urinary control problems. Used in times past to help support intermittent fevers & malaria, Centaury can be used to help support periodic febrile health issues such as malaria.

Centaury
Centaurium erythraea Raffin.

Family: Gentianaceae.

Other Names: Petite centaurée (French); Echtes Tausendgüldenkraut (German); centaurea minore (Italian); centaura manor (Spanish).

Description: Centaurium represents a complex of at least 12 subspecies. It is a sparse, erect biennial of about 0.5 m high. A basal rosette of oblong leaves is tbrrned in the first year and a slender, much-branched flowering stalk bearing small pink flowers emerges in the second year.

Origin: Europe and the Mediterranean; products mainly from eastern Europe and North Africa.

Parts Used: Dried aerial parts, collected while the plant is in flower (Centaurii herba).

Therapeutic Category: Bitter tonic (dyspepsia).

Uses and Properties: A bitter tonic to help support digestive disturbances, chronic dyspepsia, and lack of appetite. Traditionally thought to be helpful to help support fever and digestive, liver, bile, bladder and urological complaints. Externally used for wound support.

Active Ingredients: The plant contains bitter iridoid glycosides, so-called secoiridoids - mainly swertiamarin but also gentiopicrin, deacetylcentapicrin and sweroside. Small amounts of dimeric secoiridoids, such as centauroside, occur with flavonoids, xanthone derivatives (such as methylbellidifolin), other phenolics (phenylpropanoids), triterpenes, sterols and trace amounts of secoiridoid alkaloids.

Health Effects: The bitter iridoids are known to act as appetite stimulants by reflectorily increasing the flow of saliva and gastric juices. Some anti-inflammatory and antipyretic (fever reducing) activity has been shown in animal studies.

Notes: Small quantities of centaury are added as a bitter food flavouring to foodstuffs and to alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Centaurium species all have bitter iridoid glycosides; several of them can be used to support health, e.g. the Chilean C. chilense is an ingredient of homoeopathy.

Status: Traditional health; Pharm.; Comm. E+; ESCOP 6.

Preparation and Dosage: The crude herb, tincrures or extracts are included in supportives and supplements. In Europe, a bitter tonic tea is prepared by steeping one heaped teaspoon of the dried herb in a cup of cold water for several hours and then heating it to drinking temperature. The recommended daily dose is 6 g of the crude herb or 1 - 2 g of extract.

Medicinal Usage

Although scientists find no basis for the use of centaury as an antidote, they have substantiated other traditional applications of this plant - its use to help stimulate the appetite and to help support gas pains. Centaury, they have discovered, contains a substance (called erythrocentaurin) that stimulates the flow of saliva and gastric juices and the secretion of bile by the liver.

A tea brewed from centaury flowers will perk up a flagging appetite, aid digestion, help ease an attack of heartburn, and may even reduce the sufferings of jaundice in certain cases; it will, however, cause nausea if taken in excess. Because the chemicals in centaury are extremely bitter, herbalists recommend mixing the tea with sweeter herbs. Another method has been to take the herb in the form of vermouth, a popular aperitif wine in whose recipe it figures.

A tea brewed from the dried flowering plant serves as an appetite stimulant and carminative (a substance that expels intestinal and stomach gas). Scientific studies have confirmed that both of these uses of the plant are valid. Centaury is an ingredient of vermouth. The plant was once recognized as a drug in the National Formulary, a reference book for pharmacists.

General Herb Information

Humanity first learned the use of nutraceutical plants, said the storytellers of ancient Greece, from the centaur Chiron, half man, half horse. When he was wounded by a poisoned arrow, this sage monster supported himself with a pretty blue wildflower, and in his honor - so the story goes - the plant was named centaury.

Habitat: Moist meadows, fields, waste places.

Range: Native to Europe, centaury is naturalized from Quebec to Michigan, south to Georgia and Indiana, and, in the West, from northwestern California north to Washington and east to Idaho.

Identification: An annual or biennial 4-20 inches tall. A branched stem rises from a basal rosette of leaves. Each branch bears pairs of lance-shaped leaves. Five-petaled rose-purple flowers (July - August) are borne in dense, flat-topped clusters.

Common Centaury
Centaureum erythraea
[Lesser Centaury, Feverwort; Culpeper: Centaurea cyanus]

Medicinal Usage

The wound-mending and blood-staunching properties of centaury were known to the ancient Greeks, and in Europe it was traditionally used as a panacea for almost ever kind of ailment and health concern, including malaria. Externally, in the form of a lotion, it was reputed to remove freckles and facial blemishes. Culpeper said that "the herb is so safe you cannot fail in the using of it" adding, with reference to the herb's bitter taste, "it is very wholesome, but not very toothsome."

Culinary Usage

Centaury was used to flavour herbal teas, wines and adult drinks.

Miscellaneous

Centaury is reputedly named after Chiron, the centaur of Greek mythology, who used the herb to mend himself of a wound contaminated by the blood of the many-headed serpent, Hydra. In The Boke of Secretes of Albartus Magnus of the Vertues of Herbes, Stones, and Certain Beastes, printed by William Copland in 1560, it was claimed that if centaury "be joined with the blood of a female lapwing or black plover and be put with oil in a lamp, all they that compass it about shall believe themselves to be witches so that one shall believe of another that his head is in heaven and his feet on earth." The plant was listed by Aelfric.
