Flora Original Sweden Elixir

Our ancestors generally consumed a diet that included ample bitter herbs and vegetables, which helped them maintain efficient digestive systems. By including bitter foods in their diet, they maintained the balanced functioning of the digestive organs. Poor digestion, so common now, was foreign to them. Despite having four different taste buds on the surface of our tongues to discern taste (sour, sweet, salty and bitter), today’s modern diet is virtually void of bitter substances. Bitters have beneficial effects on the body’s organs and systems as they stimulate the salivary glands and activate the mucosa to secrete more fluid to soothe the gastrointestinal tract while stimulating the liver to produce more gall for better digestion. Bitters also stimulate the release of digestive juices from the pancreas.

Original Sweden Elixir is a 15-herb liquid formula containing aloe, angelica root, anise, camphor, carline thistle, fennel, galangal root, gentian root, licorice root, manna, myrrh, bitter orange peel, rhubarb root, senna pods and zedoary root. The Original Sweden Elixir represents the essence of skill, knowledge and experience in producing the finest quality herbal bitters.  Only premium ingredients have been selected to achieve the highest quality and potency.  They are ideal to use before meals to stimulate digestion or after meals to lessen feelings of fullness or gas.
