BITTERS: AN ALTERNATIVE TO STRICT FOOD ELIMINATION
*The statements on this page have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
Suggested Use: To stimulate healthy digestion, enjoy approximately ¼ teaspoon (1.2 mL) of our bitters before or after meals-- or to curb a sugar craving (not to exceed 8 times per day)! Start small in your serving: everyone's body is different, and many people find that a very small serving can be quite sufficient. If the bitter taste is especially rare in your diet, your digestion will fire up with just a very small amount of the bitters. Use the mouth spray for a convenient way to spritz the bitters directly on the tongue!
Q. Do bitters really work as a digestive aid?
A. Yes! Bitters stimulate our 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. To prime digestion use our bitters 10-15 minutes before you eat! For best results, take straight or spray in your mouth with our mouth spray–you need to taste the bitter flavor to get full effect! Bitters can also be used for acute needs like upset stomach, indigestion, or occasional heartburn–take them after a meal or whenever you need them!

Q. Can I use the digestive bitters while pregnant and/or breastfeeding?
A. Our chamomile bitters are suitable for occasional nausea and heartburn during pregnancy. Our original, citrus, and maple bitters are not safe for pregnancy; the gentian and angelica in them are herbs that are not recommended during pregnancy.
All flavors of our digestive bitters can be used with caution while nursing; please stay within the recommended dosage and consult your healthcare practitioner.
Q. What is the difference between the 4 flavors of digestive bitters?
A. The original, citrus, and maple flavors all have the same basic formula with different natural flavors added. The maple flavor has a touch of organic maple syrup, the original flavor has a spicier & the most bitter flavor, and the citrus flavor has more organic citrus essential oils. The chamomile bitters are a little different; they are our only bitters formula that contains chamomile, and they are free of citrus, fennel, & essential oils, so that they can be enjoyed occasionally during pregnancy and by more folks with sensitivities!
