# Table is not centered

I'm having some problems creating the following table:

\begin{table}[h]
\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{X X}
\begin{itemize}
\item  Very efficient!
\item Use of mild conditions
\item Broad spectrum of reactions, almost everything
\item Not Bound to Natural decision!
\end{itemize}
&
\begin{itemize}
\item Only one enantiomeric form
\item Restricted conditions
\item Prone to inhibition
\item Better in water
\end{itemize}
\end{tabularx}
\end{table}


Problems

I'd like to center it (now it is more on the left side).

What I tried

I tried using \begin{center} instead of the table environment and I also tried to use \centering command but it didn't work.

How can I do it in a simple manner?

Something like this perhaps:

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{table}[htp]
\begin{minipage}{.5\textwidth}\centering
\begin{itemize}
\item  Very efficient!
\item Use of mild conditions
\item Broad spectrum of reactions, almost everything
\item Not Bound to Natural decision!
\end{itemize}
\end{minipage}%
\begin{minipage}{.5\textwidth}\centering
