St. Francis Herb Farm
Canadian Bitters® is probably the most iconic and best known of all our formulas. Herbal bitters are an extremely valuable aid in maintaining good health, so much so that the appropriate rule of thumb may not so much be “you are what you eat”—as important this is—but rather, “you are what you digest”. By enhancing secretions of the liver, pancreas, stomach, and small intestine, bitters revitalize a whole range of digestive functions and provide rich enzyme catalysts, which improve nutrient absorption. If you have trouble with flatulent dyspepsia—gas, burping, bloating and indigestion—you’ll derive tremendous benefit from Canadian Bitters®.
