This was recommended by a local shop. I started with the smallest size (the only size available in the local shop) and really noticed the improvement on my digestion. I just loved it and searched for a biggest size available. I am so happy that I can find a larger 250ml size at NutriFarm with a good price. Genetically I have a slow and weak digestive system so if I eat a heavy meal or over eat a bit my stomach just malfunction and gives me a great pain for weeks. I’ve used and still time to times use activated charcoal and immediate relief enzymes time to times when my digestion and stomach pain gets really bad from food but this Canadian Bitters is my daily item that I like to use. It is very bitter (I actually enjoy bitter flavours) but 30 mins after taking a dosage before meal really calms my stomach and warms it up as well. Sometimes I will take it a bit more than 1.5ml and it really works. I recommended to my mom, she immediately fell in love with how effective it is (she said it’s like an ancient Asian herb medicine) and uses daily.
