How digestive bitters can help improve your gut.
When it comes to gut health, little has as big of an effect as digestion. It comes down to the foods we eat, if we’re chewing properly, taking our time, and if our gut is “prepared” to eat food.
It used to be that home cooked meals were the norm. The scents wafting out of the kitchen would signal our bodies that food was on the way and it’s time to get your digestion on. Sadly, that’s not often the case anymore. In the world of takeout and busy lives, it’s not often that most of us sit down to a long meal and our guts pay the price.
This week we’re looking at digestive bitters. If you’re unfamiliar with them, you’re not alone. These aren’t exactly your cocktail bitters, though in reality they’re not so different. This are bitter herbs in a liquid tincture specifically formulated to help kick start our digestion before eat. They’re a great, easy way to help alleviate digestive discomfort and help us get the most our of our food.
