Gentian Bitters are Mockingbird Meadows’ unique twist on the classic bitter plant, Gentiana lutea. You’ll love their savory and satisfying taste that complements the delicious bitter flavor. Best of all, you’ll quickly find yourself dreaming of ways to get even more than the suggested dose. We recommend adding them to a salad dressing! What Is a Bitter? Bitters can help you to balance your digestive system+. You can use them to improve your absorption of nutrients during digestion. You can even use them to curb your sweet tooth. The bitter flavor encourages your gall bladder, liver, and stomach to produce appropriate levels of digestive juices. Sadly, the American diet is severely lacking in the bitter taste that your body needs to maintain a properly toned digestive system. As a result, you may experience symptoms of a lack of assimilation, acid indigestion, reflux, constipation, and much more. *This variety of bitters isn’t recommended if you are pregnant. How Do I Use It? Put 15 drops on the top of your tongue 15 minutes before each meal for best results. Gentian Bitters Ingredients: Apple Cider Vinegar*, Dandelion Root (Taraxacum officinale)*, Angelica (Angelica archangelica)*, Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris)*, Ginger (Zingiber officinale), Gentian (Gentiana lutea)* and Orange Peel (Citrus sinensis)*. 2 ounces.

    Most of us understand the value of eating and buying local. Taking back our food, goods and services from multinational corporations and sourcing them from small growers, producers, artisans and entrepreneurs benefits our families, our environment and our communities. Heal Local argues that "100-mile health care" can be equally valuable in terms of how we treat illness and injury and maintain wellness.

    This innovative guide demonstrates that by harnessing multifaceted whole plants, we can rely on homegrown or regionally produced herbs, rather than importing exotics and non-natives. Based on the small apothecary model, author Dawn Combs explains how to:

    • Maximize the benefits of homegrown first aid, from increased freshness, potency and effectiveness, to community resilience and local economic growth
    • Make home herbal health care less intimidating and more attainable, by focusing on 20 herbs to effectively treat most common injuries and ailments
    • Implement a local medicine culture safely and sustainably, while protecting and respecting wild plant populations

    Many herbals overwhelm their readers, presenting a list of hundreds of herbs, each with a different purpose. Heal Local empowers readers by showing that you don't need to know everything about every herb on the planet to create a complete home apothecary.

    Anyone can be self-sufficient with their wellness, regardless of their previous knowledge, experience or available space.

    The era of the penicillin miracle is over. Through our indiscriminate use of pharmaceutical antibiotics in hospitals and factory farms, humans have created "Superbugs" — tenacious and virulent bacteria that develop resistance to solitary antibiotic compounds at an alarming speed.

You'll learn how antibiotic herbs such as aloe, garlic, and grapefruit seed extract represent our best defense against bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, and Salmonella — and how their use will ensure that, in the future, antibiotic drugs will still be there when we really need them.
