Early 20th century brown mold blown glass bottle with bakalite screw on cap. Labeled Elix. Gentianae Glycerinatum.

According the the 1915 issue of the National Association of Retail Druggists Journal, Gentianae Glycerinatum was used as a bitter tonic, stomichic, alterative, useful in diabeties for its germicidal action, and has nutritive value. While it may have nutritional benefits, especially for those recovering from illness, according to a 1907 issue of the Medical Critic and Guide, the taste is so bad that it is very difficult to administer.
