The genus name Gentiana and common name gentian derive from that of the second-century Illyrian king Gentius, who is said to have introduced this herb as a medicine.
Gentian is so bitter that even when it is diluted to 1 part bitter to 12,000 parts other fluids, the bitterness can still be tasted. It is not generally considered edible, aside from therapeutic use, though it is used to flavor beverages such as vermouth and bitters.
Veterinarians use gentian to stimulate the appetite of animals. Folk wisdom of Appalachia holds that carrying a piece of gentian root in your pocket will increase your physical strength.
