A blend of bitter herbs and warming herbs essential to improving digestion and internal function.
We often crave the sweet and dislike deep and bitter flavor notes, but the components that make up bitter are exactly what we need to support healthy digestion. The taste of bitter stimulates the entire digestive, absorptive, and eliminatory process, making bitter herbs some of our most important herbal friends.
Digestive bitters should be a key part of digestive health protocols and one of the first steps to consider in most wellness plans. We simply can’t be healthy without good digestion.
When your tongue tastes Belly Bitters, the stomach secretes hydrochloric acid (HCl); the liver, pancreas, and small intestine produce and excrete more digestive enzymes and juices, and the gallbladder contracts, squirting bile into the first part of the small intestine.
Beeyoutiful's Bitters are best taken just prior to a meal so that the digestive processes can get prepared to digest the food. One dropper is all it takes to get the HCl, bile, and digestive enzymes and juices flowing for healthy digestion and absorption. We have found that holding it in the mouth for a few seconds before swallowing allows the receptors in the mouth to begin sending their signals and encouraging the bodies digestive processes.
Belly Bitters formula uses warming spicy herbs along with the bitter herbs. This does more than just improve the taste. Over time bitter herbs which are cold in nature will suppress the “fire” or digestive activity of the stomach. To keep this from happening we pair herbs that are warming – ginger, cinnamon, angelica and orange peel – with the cold bitters: dandelion, artichoke, gentian, yellow dock, and yarrow.
Consult with your medical care provider before using Belly Bitters to make sure they are a suitable supplement for your unique health needs. A complete list of ingredients is available under the Additional Information tab at the top of this description.
Belly Bitters are not suggested for individuals dealing with the following health scenarios: stomach ulcers, gastritis (inflammation of the stomach), and the rare individual with abnormally high HCl production. People with large gallstones may also wish to avoid bitters, as the contraction of the gallbladder can move a stone up into the bile duct where it may become stuck and cause a gallbladder attack.

It is definitely bitter! I haven't really taken it faithfully, but I usually take it if I'm eating close to going to bed. Comes in a convenient bottle with a dropper, so its super easy to slip in your purse when going out.
I haven't had a gallbladder in almost 30 years and this product really works for my occasional indigestion. On my recent vacation trip this product came in handy for the occasional not-so-healthy meals. Even worked taking it after meals when I forgot to take it before I ate!! Thanks for another great product!!
This stuff is amazing! I purchased this because of an article I read about it (in the beeyoutiful newsletter) hoping it would help my acid reflux. Oh my does it help! I have acid reflux that seriously feels like it could be a heart attack. Pain in my chest, neck and ears. When I feel it coming on I take about 5 -7 drops with a swallowful of water and it's gone in 5 minutes! I also take this if I feel like I have a "sour" stomach. The taste is definitely bitter but just pop in a piece of gum and you are feeling better in no time! It seems expensive but a little goes a long way!
I am considering purchasing this but I no longer have a gallbladder. Will this product still be helpful for digestive issues without a gallbladder? Thanks

Hello, we recommend speaking with your care provider to ensure it would be an appropriate digestive support for you to use post gall bladder surgery. We have had customers use it after having their gallbladder removed and they feel it has been helpful but we do not suggest beginning a new supplement without the knowledge and recommendation of your care provider. -- Steph

Hello! This has been used with children but we highly recommend utilizing your child's care provider to make sure it is an appropriate option for their specific health situation. A drop or two immediately before or after a meal is how it has been used with children per care providers approval. However, every child's health situation is unique and what is appropriate for one is not appropriate for another. Hope this helps! -- Steph
