In the celebratory moments of life – eating is almost always involved.

Food is a joyful part of family BBQs, summer picnics, life celebrations, camping trips, giving thanks, long weekends, and making merry with favorite holiday foods. 

Unfortunately, digestive issues can arise when indulging – or overindulging – resulting in bloating, heartburn, gas, or discomfort that can put a damper on good times.  

We’re here to tell you that herbs can help to soothe discomfort, and even help you to prevent indigestion – so you can indulge joyfully!  

Herbs have helped treat a wide range of digestive maladies throughout history and across cultures. In this tradition, we harnessed the unique benefits of plant medicines in 3 targeted formulas that address common digestive issues. 

Canadian Bitters

Canadian Bitters® – Supports Optimal Digestion

We’ve all been there, feeling like food is just sitting heavily in the stomach after overindulging, or eating when stressed out. But certain traditional herbs contain unique bitter compounds that help to relieve uncomfortable symptoms of indigestion, like stomach upset, gas, bloating, and heartburn. 

Canadian Bitters® formulas can help!  
  • Unique digestive bitters tonics that prepare and support healthy digestion.
  • Features 9 certified organic herbs with bitter compounds that relieve symptoms of indigestion.
  • 100% natural and non-habit-forming. 


Bitter compounds stimulate the vagus nerve that communicates to the digestive system to kick into action – helping to support the body in processing food throughout the entire digestive tract while working to help regulate blood sugar, reducing energy crashes and sugar cravings. 

Our Canadian Bitters® contain a spectrum of traditional bitter herbs including globe artichoke, dandelion, and gentian root that can be taken daily as a tonic to help support digestion. This traditional formula also contains cardamom and chamomile, which are carminative herbs — meaning they help to calm the digestive tract, alleviating gas, and bloating. 

Bitters are, well… bitter, but that’s why – and how – they work! For a version with a hint of sweet, try Canadian Bitters® Maple or convenient Canadian Bitters® Maple Spray with a touch of maple syrup. 

How to Take: Ideally, take Canadian Bitters® 5- 10 minutes before a meal. While best to take them before eating, it’s “bitter late than never!”: if you forget to take it before meals, you can always take it during or after. 

Unlike formulas that can create dependence or irritate tissues, Canadian Bitters® and Canadian Bitters® Maple are both natural, non-habit-forming formulas that encourage the digestive system to function more efficiently on an on-going basis, instead of merely providing a temporary solution.
