In truth, all of our bitters contain bitter, digestive supporting herbs and will help ensure great digestive health, but depending on your tendencies or preferences, there are some that may be a better choice than others. When it comes to digestive woes, herbs are among your best allies, and with good reason: they work, and usually quite fast. Bitter substances stimulate the body’s innate digestive response and optimize digestive function. They trigger the digestive system to produce the body’s endogenous digestive enzymes, secrete bile, and balance HCl levels in the stomach.
We have six different bitters formulas designed to be helpful and supportive to a wide range of people. Take a look at our difference bitters formulas and choose the one that's right for you.
Classic Bitters: (TB) Original, Citrus and Maple
Our classic bitters include herbs like Dandelion Root and Leaf, Burdock Root, Yellow Dock, Gentian, and Angelica. These bitter roots are rounded out with carminative aromatic herbs like Ginger, Fennel, and Orange Peel to soothe gas and bloating. Enjoy the liver support bitters offer and expect a clean burning metabolism, support clear & healthy skin, and fewer cravings.
Classic bitter formulas:
Our most bitter formula, featuring more gentian than all the others. Original Bitters are for the bitter enthusiast!
Tasting notes: strong bitter, earthy with light citrus freshness and notes of fennel and cardamom
Our classic bitters formula, with a citrusy twist, making these bright and zesty in flavor notes.
Tasting notes: citrusy, bright, bitter, slightly sweet
Our “beginner bitters” are a great place to start if you are unfamiliar with taking bitters. This is still our original formula, but with a little less gentian and real maple syrup. The maple syrup cuts the strong notes of the bitters so you can quickly adjust to using them. We suggest starting here and moving onto citrus and original once you have gotten used to them. You still get the benefits from the bitters formula; it’s just a little less intense.
Tasting notes: sweet, bitter, earthy with notes of vanilla and maple
Our liver is our superstar. One of the largest organs in our bodies, the liver's primary function is to detoxify and support healthy metabolism. It is the gatekeeper, tirelessly defending our body of all the chemicals, toxins, and anything else we cross during our lives: hormones, synthetics, alcohol, unnatural substances. The filtered waste is turned into bile and stored in your gallbladder. During digestive processes, the bile is released into the digestive tract as we eat and metabolize food.
This formula was designed with specific herbs that encourage and support the movement and production of bile and supports the liver's ability to clear waste from our bodies.
Tasting notes: sweet, bitter, woody and herbaceous.
We wanted a bitter option that was palatable and safe across the board. These bitters are for everyone: during pregnancy, and enjoyed by kids! The sweet and soothing taste of these bitters pleases most palates. With all the same digestive benefits of our original bitters line, our Calm Tummy Bitters are also suitable for morning sickness and occasional nausea during pregnancy, and they can soothe the gut-brain connection during periods of stress.
Tasting notes: smooth, slightly bitter, buttery and floral.
We wanted to rely on the traditional bitter roots that serve as the foundation of our original formulas but offer a version made without alcohol. Apple Cider Vinegar not only meets that goal but is a classic tonic in itself. Burdock and dandelion roots are excellent sources of prebiotic starches, essential for maintaining a healthy microbiome. The powerful bitter qualities of gentian and artichoke fully stimulate bitter taste receptors throughout our digestive tract. The ginger warms the formula up by providing a carminative effect to soothe gas and bloating.
Tasting notes: earthy, sour and pungent.
