Which Bitters Are Best For Me?

All of our bitters formulas contain traditionally bitter, digestive supporting herbs that will help ensure optimal digestive health. Depending on your digestive needs or preferences, one formula may be a better choice than another. When it comes to digestive woes, herbs are among your best allies, and with good reason: they work, and usually quite fast. Bitter substances stimulate the body’s innate digestive response and optimize digestive function.* They trigger the digestive system to produce the body’s endogenous digestive enzymes, secrete bile, and balance HCl levels in the stomach.* As soon as you taste the bitter flavor on your tongue, it's like a doorbell message to your stomach to get ready for a meal - and right away, your digestion gets going!

We have five different bitters formulas designed to be helpful and supportive to a wide range of people. Take a look at our difference bitters formulas and choose the one that's right for you.

Healthy Liver Bitters

Our liver is our superstar. One of the largest organs in our bodies, the liver's primary function is to detoxify and support healthy metabolism. It is the gatekeeper, tirelessly defending our body of all the chemicals, toxins, and anything else we cross during our lives: hormones, synthetics, alcohol, unnatural substances. The filtered waste is turned into bile and stored in your gallbladder. During digestive processes, the bile is released into the digestive tract as we eat and metabolize food.

This formula was designed with specific herbs that encourage and support the movement and production of bile and supports the liver's ability to clear waste from our bodies.

  • Looking for natural liver support
