Hilde Hemmes' Herbals Digest-Rite Teabags relieve symptoms of indigestion, stimulate gastric secretions and support healthy digestion/appetite.

Hilde Hemmes' Herbals Digest-Rite Teabags combine gentian with other bitter herbs in a therapeutic, powerful formula. These herbs are used in western herbal medicine to maintain healthy digestive function. As gastric secretion declines with age, a significant percentage of people aged 65 years or older have abnormally low gastric acidity. Low acidity can lead to poor nutrient absorption and abnormal bowel flora. When bitter substances are tasted at the back of the tongue prior to a meal, they have a priming effect on the upper digestive function. This is most noticeable if digestion is below optimum.




Adults: Infuse 1 teabag (1.6g) in 250mL (one cup) of boiling water, steep for ten minutes before removing teabag. Drink 1 cup three times daily, after meals. There are no restrictions on duration of use.
