Bitters are used to help balance the digestive system+. They are traditionally used to increase the absorption of nutrients during digestion, but can also be used to curb a sweet tooth. When used 15-20 minutes prior to eating they encourage the gall bladder, liver and stomach to produce appropriate levels of our digestive juices. The American diet is severely lacking in the bitter taste that our body needs to maintain a properly toned digestive system. This leads to a lack of assimilation, acid indigestion, reflux, constipation and much more. Read more about Why We Need Bitter at our farm blog.
