Digestion is the amazing process in which the food we ingest becomes part of our being. We literally are what we eat. Tasting a bitter herb before a meal gets your digestive juices flowing, prepares your body to receive and assimilate the nutrients in your meal and helps to discern and eliminate what is not needed. Taking bitters on a regular basis can help ease digestive issues such as indigestion, constipation and heartburn. Bitters also help the liver to eliminate toxins and are a great companion to any cleanse. Our Bitters Sweet formula combines herbs that are warming and moving and help balance the gut microbiome. It’s a lovely remedy to carry and offer to your friends and family before enjoying a meal together. Best taken before meals. *
ingredients: Angelica root (Angelica archangelica), Oregon grape root (mahonia spp.), orange peel (Citrus aurantium), burdock root (Arctium lappa), yellowdock root (Rumex crispus), cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum cassia), German chamomile flower glycerite (Matricaria recutita), and organic cane alcohol.
Angelica’s delightfully spicy, aromatic roots make for a warming, bitter tonic that stimulates digestion. This lovely carminative herb brings movement to areas of constriction or tension to help keep energy moving so we can digest our best.
Oregon Grape Root:
Oregon Grape Root contains a host of compounds to support healthy liver and digestive function. Its bitter, cooling nature settles a nervous stomach while stimulating digestive fluids, helping the body to break down food and nutrients. A versatile herb, Oregon Grape Root also aids a variety of infections and liver related skin conditions.
Yellow dock is another bitter staple to take in a before meal blend. Digestion starts as we begin to smell and taste our food, and the bitter flavor helps to stimulate digestive juices and enzymes. Yellow Dock helps to tone the organs of elimination and the blood, encouraging movement and aiding in the body’s timely release of toxins.
Cinnamon is an ancient remedy that is used throughout the world. Its potent warming and moving energy aids the absorption of nutrients and helps to stimulate the appetite of a slow, sluggish digestive system. Cinnamon can also help normalize blood sugar levels, stimulate circulation and generally warm the body.
