Boost your Digestion with Swedish Bitters!

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.

2) Made with only premium quality and tested herbal ingredients.

    • Swedish Bitters ~ A GAME CHANGER !

      from Peaks Island, Maine 04108 America on 9/04/2019
      A brilliant mix of bitters and leaving out the alcohol allows for the herbs to work even more precisely. Looking for a Team to work on all systems to (finally) get your digestion working? This is a game changer - wish I had found it 50 years ago. When the digestion is working. . . . digestion on all levels of your very be-ing can truly work.


      This is a brilliant combination of herbs. Offering it without alcohol makes an enormous difference in the delivery of the functionality of the herbs.


      I dislike. . . that I will be challenged to take it with me as I travel for the next 5 months.

      Swedish bitters rocks!

      from Honolulu, Hawaii USA on 4/23/2016
      I use only 1/4 teaspoon in a cup of cold water with lemon juice. I love the flavor of Swedish Bitters by Flora and it works remarkably well! I'm about to order my fifth bottle and hope never to be without it.

      Swedish Bitters by Flora are much more palatable than others I've tried, and work quite well!

    • The Best Bitters

      from San Jose on 5/28/2015
      My first Swedish Bitters was from Flora. Then I ran out, stopped at a local health food store and bought another brand. That other brand is sitting more than half full in my fridge. I have gone back to Flora. I love it and what it does for my digestion even though it tastes nasty. It is supposed to be bitter, and I actually enjoy taking it. I like the fact that it has no alcohol - just the taste of the herbs. The other brand with alcohol in it that I couldn't stomach - or even get down my throat - was too harsh for my body because of the alcohol and I suspect the alcohol interfered with the effectiveness of the herbs.

      Works great

      from Seattle, WA on 6/18/2014
      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!


      Works great.


      Taste not the greatest but they are bitters!

      Swedish Bitters

      from Endwell, NY on 12/03/2013
      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.
