Digestive Bitters tincture, 1 oz. – $9.99 – Sold Out
Consuming bitter herbs before or after a meal is a centuries-long tradition. Many cultures serve a bitter “aperitif” before eating, or a “digestif” afterwards. (See Wikipedia for more info.)
Taken before eating, bitters jump-start the digestive system, priming it for food. Afterwards, bitters encourage continued secretion of essential digestive juices. Bitters are especially useful for helping the body deal with fats. Bitters are excellent for dealing with indigestion, but can be taken as a matter of course in the absence of negative symptoms.
We crafted this particular bitters from three of our favorite bitter herbs:
- Hops (Humulus lupulus) – a traditional ingredient in digestive bitters
- Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca) – a heart tonic
- Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) – a very bitter herb, and also the active herb in Absinthe
Just a few drops will suffice. This is very strong! We formulated this for our own pleasure, and liked it so much we have packaged it to offer here online. As with all of our plant medicines, we grew, harvested & processed these ingredients ourselves.
Tinctured in certified organic alcohol and wild spring water.
