Walden Farmacy | Bitters & Herbal Formulas
Bitters are the antidote to the perennial state of poor digestive function, the antidote to high-carb processed-food diets. Poor digestion is usually the root cause of so many illnesses- allergies, autoimmunity, poor absorption, liver disease, high cholesterol, diabetes, candida, and more. Bitters can work miracles on IBS and other digestive issues as well as help to curb a sweet tooth by providing a contrasting experience to the body so that fruits and even vegetables seem sweeter and “sweets” just become too much. Taken with a meal bitters help to curb feelings of fullness, bloating, or gas. Just add enough to a glass of tea or water so that you can taste the bitter flavor.
