The Bitter Truth

December 11, 2014

bittersAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
Bitters have been used pan-culturally, from Africa to Eurasia, as a natural tool to enhance digestion and appetite since our most primordial times. It would not be uncommon, for instance, to catch your primitive self nibbling on a bit of greenery along your post-hunt journey or rummaging in the village foliage after indulging in some flame-broiled bison. We humans learned very quickly that these bitter tasting shrubs growing all around often help ease our tummies after an unsettling meal.

In our more modern incarnation, we have come to enjoy our bitters, in style, as an herbal cocktail – sometimes before meals as in your classic pre-dining apéritif to stimulate your digestive tract or as a post-meal digestif in repentance of the decadence in which you’ve just indulged. Both are equally useful in aiding your digestion whether around meals or anytime you feel food is “stuck” or that your digestion is sluggish.

Life saver!

Recommended to me by 2 Naturopaths. this product has helped me out of SIBO issues and also maintained my body's natural gastric process.
Whenever I have a flare up of digestive problems, this product, in combination with garlic and probiotics has helped me restore things without the torment of antibiotics, which destroy your gut lining. I highly recommend staying on an assigned regiment of Candibactin BR for a cure.

Sleep Now
Sleep Now is my new favorite cocktail.

Sleep now is a beautiful tincture that helps de-stress my mind and makes my body feel instantly calm. Sometimes other sleep cocktails can knock you out too quickly or give you a groggy feeling in the morning but not Sleep Now. I love the taste of it, maybe because I have always felt connected to lemon balm and motherwort.
Sleep Now is a soft, flowing medicine that works perfectly. My neighbor introduced me to Farmacopia and I just ended up buying a small lazy susan to display all my lovely tinctures. I use different ones throughout the day and I can honestly say they are making a huge difference in my life. My moods are much more stable now. Thank you so much, Farmacopia!!

Aw!!! This review is so sweet and we love your lazy-susan Farmacopia display!

Son loves them

Love these vitamins. My son looks forward to them everyday and usually reminds me if I forget. They seem to work well. He is a very healthy 4 year old.
