“I absolutely love these before and after meal bitters! Not only are they delicious but they do help with digestion.”

How Digestive Bitters can help your clients hormones

  • Aids liver detoxification: Burdock, dandelion root, and andrographis are bitter herbs that have been shown to move toxins, protect the liver, and help it regenerate. The liver plays a vital role in overcoming Estrogen Dominance and a supporting healthy thyroid function.
  • Helps bind "dirty" estrogens: The increase in bile then helps address Estrogen Dominance.
  • May enhance fertility: Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is the leading cause of infertility in women, and now there’s a possibility bitters could help.

How Digestive Bitters support overall health

  • Improve digestion: Thanks to increased enzyme secretion and stomach acid production.
  • Better bile production: Which in turn eases constipation, improves fat digestion (key to HDL “good” cholesterol formation), estrogen metabolism, and regular bowel movements.
  • Lower inflammation in the gut: A bitter combination of myrrh, chamomile, and coffee charcoal was comparable to the drug mesalamine in helping ulcerative colitis patients maintain remission.
  • Lessen acid reflux: Bitters improve the tone of the esophageal sphincter, according to animal studies.
  • Activate the parasympathetic nervous system: Stimulates the vagus nerve. This can help get you out of “fight or flight” and into “rest and digest” mode.
  • Healthy skin: By supporting the liver, you support the skin. When the liver gets overwhelmed as a detoxification system, the skin can be used as a second resort for elimination of toxins. Even psoriasis has a liver connection. Other examples include “liver rashes” and jaundiced skin associated with liver disease.

Frequently Asked Questions

For best results, recommend that clients take the bitters any time between 15 minutes or immediately before or after a meal.
The Wellena Digestive Bitters can be taken every day. If you are recommending bitters from other brands, that might not be the case.
They can, but the bitter receptors in the body need a higher concentration of bitters to gain the medicinal benefits.
Pregnant women, children, and people with ulcers and gastritis, and former alcoholics should avoid bitters. For those sensitive to any of the herbs present in the bitters, they should avoid the product.
Our Wellena Before Digestive Bitters are 90% organic and After Digestive Bitters are 80% organic. The non-organic herbs are responsibly wildcrafted and confirmed not to contain any harmful compounds.
Our glycerin is derived from coconut.
Our alcohol/ethanol is derived from sugarcane.
Unfortunately, we do not. Many of the medicinal constituents found in herbs are only alcohol-soluble and won’t get extracted by water or glycerin alone.
It’s officially 3 years but they are likely to last much longer. We hope they are used much sooner than that!

Anyone with stomach ulcers, should avoid bitters for the time being – although it depends on the blend of herbs. The herb gentian, as an example, stimulates the stomach’s production of hydrochloric acid (HCL), which will irritate an ulcer. The same goes forgastritis. Gentian and other HCL-promoting herbs can be used once the stomach lining is healed.

If there’s an allergy to Asteraceae herbs, like feverfew, chamomile, or echinacea, bitters may cause an allergic reaction.

Additionally, if your client is currently pregnant or may become pregnant, please check with their leading provider about any new herbs or formulas you want to recommend.

Digestive bitters have a proven track record of helping digest food better which may result in feeling lighter after meals, experiencing less acid reflux, burping, flatulence, and constipation. The liver loves bitters, too, the bitter taste facilitates detoxification. Bitters also stimulate bile flow which is helpful in digestive fatty meals and metabolism of “dirty” estrogens (present in estrogen dominance). Bitters have also been shown to balance blood sugar levels and activate the parasympathetic (rest-and-relax) nervous system.
Yes, many bitter users swear that bitters have relieved their constipation.
Before dinner, yes. Before bedtime, we don’t recommend it as it may make you feel hungry and cause night waking.
Yes, almost every culinary tradition has an element of bitterness. Some in the form of aperitifs (like Campari in North Italy, pastis in France, ouzo in Greece), others as condiments (green mango chutney in India, mustard in many countries).
The role of digestive bitters is to stimulate the body to produce and release the various enzymes that aid digestion. Taking digestive enzymes is giving your body these enzymes. For some people, taking bitters creates enough enzymatic activity that they don’t need enzymes. For others, it’s not enough and they need to supplement with enzymes. So, it really depends on the age and digestive “fire” of your clients. We suggest starting with the bitters and see if that’s enough. If not, add the digestive enzymes. You know too many digestive aids have been taken when your clients develop nausea, diarrhea, abdominal cramping or discomfort, headache, neck pain or nasal congestion.
