Swedish Bitters by Granary Herbs.
Swedish Bitters got its name from the well-known 18th century Swedish Physician and Rector of Medicine, Dr. Claus Samst. In the 18th century Dr. Samst rediscovered the formula through a family tradition.
The formula recorded by Dr. Samst is the Swedish Bitters that we know today. The Swedish doctor also compiled a manuscript describing the 46 conditions for which Swedish Bitters can bring relief. Dr. Samst himself lived to be 104 and finally succumbed, not to the ravages of old age, but as a result of a fall while out riding!.
The actual creation of the formula is credited to Dr. Phillipus Paracelsus, a Swiss Physician who lived around 1541. However, it was Maria Treben, the distinguished Austrian herbalist, who brought Swedish Bitters to the worlds’ attention. In her book “Health Through Gods Pharmacy” Maria Treben writes of the various benefits of Swedish Bitters.
This powerful combination of 16 herbs was originally put together by Swedish physician, Dr Samst who was said to have lived to 104 years of age. The Senna contained in the tonic is well known for bowel cleansing properties. Traditionally used to help digestion, Swedish Bitters are a popular choice amongst medical herbalists when promoting regularity, maintaining health and energy levels.
Granary Herbs first came into being in 1991 with the primary aim of providing high quality herbal tinctures for use by professionally qualified Medical Herbalists. The business is run by Christine who – like her fellow Austrian Maria Treben – has a deep knowledge and understanding of her craft, which is readily apparent to other professionals in the field. Granary Herbs’s gardens and laboratories are based in Kent, United Kingdom.
