For various factors, including heavier meals & decreased physical activity, our digestion in winter months slows down. A traditional way to keep digestion functioning is with the aid of bitter herb tonics, known as Bitters. The bitter flavor stimulates digestion, allowing the body to assimilate nutrients from food more fully, reducing gas & bloating, supporting beneficial gut flora, and gently stimulating bowel movement.
Side benefits of consuming bitter elixirs include common skin complaint (acne, dryness, dermatitis, eczema, etc) resolution, decrease in sugar cravings, and relaxation during meals. In this class we will discuss digestion holistically, taste various bitter elixirs for inspiration, and blend our own custom Bitter blends to use at home.
