Bitters: Bitters are extracts of bitter-tasting roots, leaves, and berries in alcohol. Bitters have been used throughout history to stimulate the digestive system.
Medicinal Uses: Herbal bitters are an ancient tonic for stimulating the production of bile in the liver which improves the digestion and absorption of fats. Take bitters 5-10 minutes before every meal. Best taken in only 2-3 ounces of water so that your taste buds may experience the bitterness of the herbs, since it is the bitterness of the herbs that enhances the digestive process and promotes the production of digestive enzymes.
Culinary Uses: Adds a creative element to craft cocktails, can be used as part of a pickle brine or marinade, and a tasty digestion-enhancing addition to sparkling water.
