In 1848, French physiologist Claude Bernard realized that juices from the pancreas could emulsify and saponify fat. Later he attributed that finding to an enzyme that would be called pancreatic lipase, or lipase for short.
The crescent-shaped seeds of caraway, AKA meridian fennel or Persian cumin, are actually the fruit of this plant. They have long been used for digestive issues like gas and bloating.
Ginger has been used as both food and medicine in Asia for thousands of years.
Gentian root has been on the herbal map for more than 2,000 years as Europeans knew its benefits as a digestive aid. It grows in the mountains of Europe, China and the US. Gentian was sought during the Middle Ages to promote appetite and offset indigestion. Some cultures still use gentian as a flavoring.
