Herbal Bitters For Holiday Woes

It’s that time of the year when indulgence is in the air, and let’s be honest, sometimes we all go a bit overboard. But fear not, because I have a nifty herbal solution for those times when your stomach is throwing a fit after that extra slice of pie: Herbal Bitters!

Herbal bitters aren’t just your grandma’s old-time remedy; they’re a powerhouse for aiding digestion. There are many types of bitters remedies. Mine includes dandelion root, dandelion leaf, yellow dock, and orange peel, with ginger, cinnamon, clove added as a carminative. It’s nature’s way of saying, “I’ve got your back” when it comes to digestive discomfort.

Here’s the scoop: When you taste something bitter, your body gets a heads-up to start the digestion process. Saliva increases, your stomach begins to produce acid, and bile flow is stimulated. All this adds up to a smoother digestion experience. It’s like a natural Tums, but with a herbal twist!

So next time you find yourself regretting that extra piece of chocolate cake, reach for a bottle of herbal bitters. Just a few drops before or after a meal can make a world of difference. Not only are you helping your tummy out, but you’re also embracing a time-honored tradition of herbalism.

Remember, overindulgence happens to the best of us. But with herbal bitters, you’re just a few drops away from feeling like yourself again. Stay healthy and enjoy every bite of life, but keep those bitters handy!

Pro tip: I add a few drops to a glass of carbonated water and sip it. It’s literally all I could tolerate during my first trimester, and it works on general nausea very well. Offered like this, even kids will take it. Of course, a few drops on the tongue is traditional, but let’s do what works, amirite?
