Very helpful to aid digestion after overindulgence in alcohol, rich or spicy food, shellfish and other minor digestive challenges.

Made from extracts of Gentian root, Ginger root, Meadowsweet, Silver Birch, Dandelion, Milk Thistle and Peppermint.

Highly concentrated, one bottle provides about 20 servings.

Taken as an aperitif before a meal, bitters help to stimulate the appetite, getting saliva and bile flowing to improve digestion. (Particularly helpful for those who have lost their appetite such as the elderly or convalescent.)

What are herbal bitters - A bitter is a herbal drink containing aromatic herbal essences, with a bitter or bittersweet flavor, often flavored with citrus, with no added sugar. Numerous varieties of bitters are on the market, as they have been popular across Europe since the 18th century.

When are bitters drunk - Bitters are used to stimulate the appetite, either for food or for cocktails. Used in both apéritifs and digestifs, they help to settle the stomach before a meal or a night of drinking. Apéritifs are usually taken before and digestifs taken afterwards.

How are bitters drunk - Bitters are often added to alcohol but a teaspoon can be added to any liquid, including water, tomato juice, fruit juice, teas & non-alcoholic beverages.
