Hot Tips Tuesday: Bitters

1779700255

Flying can wreck havoc with your digestive system. Something about the pressurized cabin and not being very mobile for hours on end can cause a little pressure inside your own cabin, if you get my drift.

Why didn’t I know about this trick a few years ago, when my seatmate on an overnight transcontinental flight announced they probably shouldn’t have snacked on prunes before traveling? Just for the record, they were right!
Anyways, it’s never too late to know about a natural solution for a natural, yet unpleasant problem.

Bitters! Yes, that bartender’s ingredient of choice for making cocktails also relieves tummy issues. According to the Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition, bitter foods stimulate the release of digestive enzymes.

A few drops taken on the tongue or in a glass of water should do the trick. Of course a Manhattan can do the trick as well!
