What's in me?
Fat and the Moon, the maker of Bitters, is best at explaining the benefits of adding this wellness product to your routine:
"Here is where the Bitters come in. Humans evolved eating bitter plants. Traditions all over this earth have bitter food and drink woven into the culinary cultural fiber. Humans have refined letting their food be their medicine. Here in the good ole’ US of A bitter flaves have been lost along with the customs of our immigrant grandparents, great grandparents and great, great grandparents.
Bitter flavor translates to ‘sup bod, get ready for food’. Bitter flavors get your mouth a’ salivating- ever noticed that? It’s called the ‘bitter reflex’! Your mouth is your first digestive organ. Your bitter inspired saliva contains enzymes that begin the process of breaking down your food. Next, your digestive system gets the memo and bile produced by the liver gets released by the gallbladder- bile breaks down your food into parts that turn into YOU and the energy you need to dance to Beyonce.
So what the heck does this have to do with body care products? Many folks reach out to ask me about eczema, hormonal acne and food sensitivities. These issues are very often symptoms of a digestive system out of whack, the liver being at the center of it all.
Fat and the Moon made bitters as a starting point to help turn some healing attention inwards. Radical Self Care starts within."
