Appetite Stimulant Tincture

Whether you have a loss of appetite due to anorexia or as a side effect of certain prescription medications or medical conditions, some herbs might act as appetite stimulants. Herbs like gentian, blessed thistle and others could help to improve your appetite and promote healthy digestion at the same time. Consult your doctor before taking any herbal appetite stimulant to discuss the potential health risks and drug interactions.

We have incorporated herbs the help aide in stimulating your appetite such as  horehound, centaury, alfalfa, fenugreek, gentian and blessed thistle to stimulate your appetite. Gentian, blessed thistle, horehound and centaury are considered "bitters," meaning that they contain certain constituents that are thought to improve appetite and digestion, says the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Bitter herbs seem to increase stomach acids and saliva, which may account for their appetite-stimulating effects. 

In addition to stimulating appetite, horehound could also help in treating respiratory ailments like coughs and bronchitis, while centaury is sometimes recommended for low stomach acid and indigestion, says the University of Michigan Health System. Alfalfa may help lower cholesterol levels and treat menopause. Gentian and blessed thistle are often also used to improve digestion, notes the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Talk to your physician before taking any of these herbs as appetite stimulants or to treat any other health problem.

Although few medical studies have been performed on these herbal appetite stimulants, the Germany government's Commission E has approved centaury, horehound and blessed thistle as viable treatments for poor appetite. Centaury is one of the most popular herbs used in European folk medicine to treat digestive tract ailments, says the University of Michigan Health System. In traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, alfalfa was used to treat digestive problems. Eclectic physicians in the United States during the 1800s began using the herb to treat poor appetite and indigestion (Reference 3). Blessed thistle has been used in European traditional medicine for digestive problems and is part of Essiac herbal therapy used to treat cancer, notes the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
