Bitters are an important class of botanicals that help support efficient digestive, assimilative, and eliminative functions. The primary function of Swedish Bitters is to help with digestive complaints like bloating, flatulence, sluggish digestion and constipation.
Bitters stimulate the flow of bile from the liver, which in turn stimulates intestinal peristalsis and promotes nutrient absorption. By enhancing digestion, Swedish Bitters are a great help in cases of bloating, flatulence and gas.

After a heavy meal, Swedish Bitters can be quite helpful against indigestion, as well as to relieve bloating and gas. Adults can take 5-10mls daily. Children can take half dose, or as directed by a Healthcare Professional. Swedish Bitters has a strong, bitter flavour and may be taken in water, herb tea or juice.
