Kickstart your Digestive System this Spring with these THREE herbs

By Shannon, Posted in Herbal Remedies

Ah, spring! The season of blooming flowers, chirping birds, and... digestive issues?

Yes, you read that right. Spring can be a tricky time for your digestive system. It's simple to overindulge and have an upset stomach with all the fresh food and outdoor activities.

Springtime allergies are one of the most frequent causes of digestive problems. Allergies in the spring are well known to cause various gastrointestinal discomforts. Your digestive tract can suffer from diarrhea, gas, bloating, and other problems due to allergies.

With a clean diet, optimum hydration, and a few herbal remedies, you can breeze through this season without any digestive mishaps. Today, we are talking about 3 of the most potent herbs you can incorporate into your diet for better gut function while enjoying the beauty of spring.


Dandelion is a powerful herb that can be used to improve overall gut health. From the roots to the leaves, every part of this mighty herb is edible. It is brimmed with bitter principles which enhance the production of digestive juices, enzymes, and bile. This assists in the breakdown and absorption of macronutrients, especially the emulsification of fats. 

Its anti-inflammatory action helps in soothing the inflamed walls of the gut while supporting the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). 

Try adding Dandelion Root Tincture this spring to your teas, smoothies, and other beverages for a humble boost of nutrition with digestive benefits.


Artichokes are not just a fancy-looking vegetable, they can also help improve your gut health. Its prebiotic fiber, inulin, acts as a gourmet feast for the good bacteria in your stomach, keeping them content and thriving. It also contains cynarin which stimulates your gallbladder to release more bile to break down those pesky fats. And to top it off, artichokes contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory powers, which can help soothe an inflamed tummy.

And if you are feeling lazy, try adding our Digestive Bitters to your water or teas to give the digestive tract a break from springtime anomalies. 


Ginger- the spicy root with tons of benefits for digestive health. It works by increasing the secretion of digestive enzymes to enhance the breakdown of food for better absorption of nutrients. It also assists with the peristaltic movement of the gut muscles to speed up the movement of food through the tract and relieve nausea, bloating, flatulence, and constipation. Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties can support the treatment of ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease.

Use Ginger Tincture at least 3 times a day in water or tea as a natural way to support your digestive health.
