How to make Bitters
Digestive bitters aid digestion, stimulate bile juices, and calm the nerves, engaging the para-sympathetic nervous system. When you taste bitters, your heart rate slows down, your glandular and intestinal activity increases, and the muscles in your intestinal tract relax, getting ready to digest. Your fight or flight response is relaxed in order to allow your body to nourish itself. Bitters stoke the inner digestive fire. And when the digestion is working optimally, so is the body.
