The root acts as a bitter,stimulating release of bile, which increases gastric secretion and improved appetite and digestion.

Hepatorestorative (liver supporting) and cholerectic (increasing bile) herbs such as St. Mary's thistle (Cnicus benedictus), fringe tree (Chionanthus virginicus) and schisandra (Schisandra chinensis) are an important part of treatment for IBS. 1
