Weleda Amara Bitters 30ml
Weleda Amara Bitters help to relieve indigestion, heartburn, nausea, loss of appetite and other acute stomach discomfort, eg feelings of bloatedness.
Amara Bitters tone any digestive weakness by stimulating the digestive processes. By stimulating gastric juice secretion, and bile, they tone the digestive organs, encouraging a stronger and complete digestion. They soothe nausea, and an irritable or nervous stomach, Amara Bitters are also excellent for poor appetites, even when they are caused by tension, by stimulating the appetite and helping induce a regular peristaltic action. Bitters improve circulation in the abdominal organs.
For effectiveness, the bitters need to be used regularly, without disguising their taste. They can be taken in water.

These symptoms are often linked to the prolonged use of anti-inflammatory medication.
