Heartburn, indigestion, constipation, and bloating are all common symptoms of sluggish or compromised digestion.

Digestion is a cascade of physiological events that start before you even put food in your mouth. That anticipatory “mouthwatering” effect is your digestive system kicking into action.

Digestive prompting can also come from something today’s diets often lack: bitter flavours. These stimulate the vagus nerve in the mouth, which ultimately results in the production of saliva, gastric juices, enzymes, and bile — crucial elements of healthy digestion.

Bitters also help the nervous system to shift into “rest and digest” mode (rather than “fight or flight”), which allows for optimal digestion.

Improving digestion in this way has numerous benefits:

  • Helps eliminate digestive upset such as gas, bloating, and heartburn
  • Greater absorption of critical nutrients
  • Support for the immune system
  • Reduction in sugar cravings
  • Retrains the digestive system to function more efficiently on-going, instead of merely providing a temporary solution

All this while being non-habit forming, unlike other laxitive-heavy bitters formulas, or some over-the-counter options.

Be prepared, for ’tis the season for over-indulgence!
