Canadian Bitters is the best digestive tonic for individuals with flatulent dyspepsia (gas, bloating, burping, indigestion, and fullness associated with digestion). The appropriate rule of thumb may not so much be, "You are what you eat" (as important as it is), but rather, "You are what you digest." Vibrant health is achieved by a variety of means; among the most important of these is good digestion. Certified Organically grown.
The use of herbal bitters has been an integral part of almost every cultural tradition in the world. Extensively taken in Europe – from which it is best known to us – herbal bitters enhance digestion and assimilation by stimulating the taste receptors on our tongue.
With many nationalities it is common practice to consume bitters before a meal, especially if it is apt to include heavy, fatty foods. Bitters can also be taken after the fact, if you find you’ve overeaten. The bitter taste of the herbs (hence the name of this tonic) is essential to their good effects. The bitterness increases the flow of bile, which supports both digestion and the body’s natural cleansing processes.
Herbal bitters are an extremely valuable aid in maintaining good health. They revitalize a whole range of digestive functions by also enhancing secretions of the liver, pancreas, stomach, and small intestine. As well, they provide rich enzyme catalysts, which improve nutrient absorption. In addition, the herbs in our Canadian Bitters formula protect the liver from toxins.
Further indications include constipation, digestive distress, and sluggish peristalsis. Sluggish elimination is often the result of reduced secretions by the digestive organs and small intestine.
