The forgotten tradition

The super herbs in our blend

Gentian

Gentiana lutea

Gentian is one of the most powerful digestive bitter tonics we have. Used traditionally for damp heat and stagnation in the stomach and liver meridians, she gives us a boost to say goodbye to what is no longer serving us (whether that’s something physical we need to eliminate through the digestive system, or thoughts and beliefs we’ve been chewing on).*

Each herb within this blend has been expertly combined to compliment one another and selected for their traditional usage as “digestive bitters.” Certain bitters were chosen for their ‘carminative’ action (occasional gas and bloating support) whereas others, like Orange Peel, encourage the downward movement of Qi during the digestive process so that everything moves smoothly.

About the

Formula

Based on centuries of tradition.

“Bitters” (also called “digestifs”) have been used since ancient times for digestive support and refers to a pre or post meal drink containing extracts of the bark, leaves, roots, or flowers of bitter-tasting plants. 

When bitter compounds are detected by our taste buds, digestive secretions are signaled and our bodies are primed to digest the way they’re designed to.* The earliest origins of bitters date back to Ancient Egypt, where digestion-supporting herbs were infused into wine.

“Bitter Deficiency”: A Modern Problem?

Herbalist Jim McDonald coined the term “Bitter Deficiency”, a notion which suggests that much of the digestive discomfort faced by modern society stems from the lack of “bitter” flavors in our 21st century diets -- we tend to lean towards sweet and savory instead. 

By including more bitter vegetables on our plates, and traditional herbal allies in our pre-or-post-meal drinks and tinctures, we can naturally support digestion and digestive secretions.*

Who It’s For

  • the fearless foodie who loves eating out and trying new things
  • someone who finds themselves occasionally gassy, bloated, or belching, and wants to be able to enjoy meals with friends and family with comfort and ease*
  •  the sweet tooth who can’t say no to a good dessert or two, and wants support for the times when you occasionally overdo it with food and drink*
  • anyone looking for a secret weapon in their back pocket that can be used in a pinch before or after meals to help nip digestive issues in the bud*

When To Use

Digestive Juice can be used before meals to prepare the body for optimal digestion, after meals to help nip occasional gas and bloating in the bud, whenever you feel like you ate or drank too much, or when you simply want to settle your stomach for maximum comfort. This formula helps you to feel lighter and more comfortable post-meal.* 

How to Use

About 15 minutes before meals, spray 6-10 times (approx. 1ml) on the tongue and let yourself fully taste the flavors before swallowing. The taste is part of the medicine, as bitter plant compounds on the taste buds have a top-down effect on digestive health and secretions.

If you forget to take before your food, no worries, take your sprays afterwards for support. Digestive Juice can be used any time of day when comfort is desired or occasional gas and bloating arises.

The story
behind the formula

When I sat down to create my "juice" formulas (a 6-piece collection designed as a toolbox of essentials for daily life that can be rotated and used as needed), I knew having a blend within the line for digestion was top priority. Why? Because when your digestion is off, so is your day. This formula is designed to improve your daily life by supporting healthy digestion at the most fundamental level, so you can enjoy food and meals with ease.*

One of the very first concepts stressed to us in my clinical herbalism program was the importance of all 5 flavors, especially underutilized bitter herbs known as “digestive bitters”.  As I began using them myself before meals, I was amazed at the difference such a small change could make, and knew that I needed to honor this tradition with my very own modern spin. 

This formula utilizes specific herbs for their ‘carminative’ action (for occasional gas and bloating support) whereas others, like Orange Peel, encourage the downward movement of Qi during the digestive process so that everything moves smoothly.*

Angelica

Angelica archangelica

One of our favorite herbs for “dampness,” Angelica is the tough-love friend we need to kick us in the butt every once in a while. She’s a bold and spicy digestive tonic that ignites our fire, specifically supporting “cold and sluggish” digestion. This same fire helps to disperse sluggishness of the spirit, with her warmth that stimulates the gut-mind, helping to reawaken our appetite for life.*

Orange Peel

Citrus sinensis

For hundreds of years, orange peels have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, primarily in immune-supporting and digestive remedies. This often-overlooked part of the fruit is perhaps the most beneficial of all, rich in phytochemicals and bitter compounds that support gut and lung health.*

Oregon Grape Root

Berberis aquifolium

Closer to a tart berry than an actual grape, the Oregon grape (also known as holly-leaved barberry) is a bitter herb, historically harvested for its roots as a tool for digestive and microbiome health, liver support, and general well-being.*

Licorice

Glycyrrhiza glabra

Not to be confused with the common candy, Licorice Root is an immune-supporting, adaptogenic herb that happens to be naturally sweet on its own.*
