Tummy Tamers


In traditional healing circles, the digestive system has long been lauded as the control tower of health. It's said that a well sorted digestive tract is key to a balanced, vibrant and ageless body. 

Even mainstream circles now connect gut health to immune function. But whether or not you consider optimal digestion the holy grail of health, most will certainly agree that nothing kills your spirit like a sluggish system and the bloating and discomfort that follow. So whether you're looking to look and feel your best throughout the holiday season or to stave off its onslaught of colds, turn to these healers to keep the peace and keep your digestive tract humming. Rest, digest and be your best.


The same classic tonic found behind the bar, may be as close as it comes to a panacea. Bitters heal our bodies at the core, boosting immunity, soothing tummies, curbing cravings (bye bye, sugar!) and clearing skin disorders from acne to eczema. They balance the appetite to assist in weight loss and improve liver function to aid detoxification. Dating back to times when we foraged our food, our bodies learned to register the bitter flavors in bitters as potential poisons. And so when we take bitters, a few drops under the tongue or mixed into a glass of water, we send a message to our bodies to jumpstart digestion and ignite the immune system. A must for any traveler. Don't leave home without them.
