Our ancestors commonly consumed a diet that included ample bitter herbs and vegetables‚ which helped them maintain efficient digestive systems. Despite having four different taste buds on the surface of our tongues to discern taste (sour‚ sweet‚ salty and bitter)‚ today’s modern diet is virtually void of bitter substances. Thanks to Austrian herbalist Maria Treben’s rediscovery of a centuries old elixir that was once an integral part of European folk medicine‚ we now have the blessing of a potent digestive tonic with its stimulating bitter element.
The original bitters recipe dates back to the 16th century‚ when it was created by the famous physician Paracelsus. It wasn’t until 1850‚ when Dr. Claus Samst of Sweden refined‚ researched and confirmed its restorative benefits that it was given the name Swedish Bitters. He was a zealous believer in the potion and consumed it himself‚ living to the ripe old age of 104. Maria Treben is credited with placing the formula in the modern spotlight through her best-selling book Health Through God’s Pharmacy.
Maria’s original Swedish Bitters represents the essence of skill‚ knowledge and experience in producing the finest quality herbal bitters. Only premium ingredients have been selected to achieve the highest quality and potency. They are ideal to use before meals to stimulate digestion or after meals to lessen feelings of fullness or gas.

Love this product. I take it after a late meal and have no digestive problems! Taste is a little strong and takes a bit getting used to. Well worth it to sleep through the night without any reflux problems!
Taste not the greatest but they are bitters!

So far I believe this product can be advantageous but I havent been using it long enough. Ill let you know after a month.
I am usually not very regular and this product corrected that right away.
Very tough to drink even with ice tea. I found it is easier to just take a gulp and then drink the ice tea instead of putting it in ice tea and drinking it slowly.
