We started offering bitters on a whim, many years ago and it has blossomed into being requested by our followers on a regular basis.
Bitters are a blend of infused botanical aromatics that are traditionally used for medicinal purposes in aiding digestion.
There are two categories of bitters: digestive bitters and cocktail bitters. As their names suggest, digestive bitters help people digest food and cocktail bitters are an ingredient in mixed beverages, such as whisky to enhance the flavor. Our Bitters can be used for both! Actually, our Bitters can be used in many ways to additionally flavor teas, coffee, hot chocolate, sauces and even baked goods!
Our body contains special receptors for bitter compounds in not only our mouth and tongue, but our stomach, gut, liver, and pancreas. The stimulation of these bitter receptors promotes healthy digestion by increasing digestive secretions. This leads to better absorption of nutrients and natural detoxification of the liver.
When your digestion needs a little support, bitters can facilitate stomach acid and act as a digestive aide. This can not only ease indigestion, but also heartburn, nausea, cramping, bloating, and gas.
Curb sugar cravings quickly with the help of bitters, which help counter the brain receptors that drive us to crave sugar and sweets. Bitters can promote overall healthy eating habits and could help control overeating and you may find that it can help suppress the appetite.
Our bitters are made with organic ingredients and is gluten free. We do NOT add sugar, corn syrup, artificial sweetener, artificial flavoring, caramel coloring or other artificial coloring.
You may use this in water, any beverage, foods, cooking, soups, stew or as a digestif.
Bitters are very potent, dosing and frequency will vary on what you’re using them for with many times only needing a few drops diluted in a small amount of water. When using bitters to ease digestive issues, you will need to experiment to find if it works better using directly before your meal or after. You may use bitters in low doses in your daily routine but you also may find that you only need to use them when needed.
We like to use 30 to 60 drops in 1 - 2 Tbs of water in a shot glass to then swallow at once before a meal and especially if going out to dinner to eat the unknown. This is a strong blend and you can absolutely dilute it a bit more just as long as its still giving you a punch of bitter and not so diluted that you cannot taste it.
