Gentle Digest is effective for both children and adults.* Gentle Digest Tincture is a digestive aid for the entire family. It is a natural, shelf stable, and effective alternative to less effective remedies for all sorts of digestive issues, including morning sickness.  The herbal combination of Gentle Digest provides fast relief and is useful for colic, reflux, gas, bloating, and other digestive complaints including indigestion, nausea, and heartburn. These same herbs have long been relied on by herbalists and mothers over the centuries to help soothe upset bellies and help alleviate pain and discomfort for even not belly related issues like teething and minor injury. This formula can also me a mild aspirin free headache remedy. This formula can be used with babies to help alleviate the pain and discomfort of teething as it is an effective pain-reliever and anti-inflammatory, while promoting relaxation and peaceful sleep. So, you can depend on Gentle Digest to help your little one through colic, teething, general fussiness, and more. This is an excellent alternative to, and more effective than gripe water.

For Colic & Teething

Gentle Digest, our colic and teething tincture, is an alcohol extracted tincture, and for good reason.

  • Glycerin tinctures aren’t as potent or effective as an alcohol tincture. Alcohol works to penetrate the cell structure of the plant material, effectively extracting the constituents, where glycerine does a poor job of this, particularly when it comes to some plant species.  Also, our cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum of the plant's constituents in the final product. When used as an extraction method, organic grain alcohol increases absorption without affecting blood sugar levels.
  • A glycerin tincture is never a good thing when using it for anything tooth related. Glycerin coats the teeth like a wax and prevents remineralization and is not an effective choice for any treatment of oral conditions.
  • Alcohol tinctures work faster and more effectively because they are absorbed in the mouth and stomach and bypass the slower intestinal system.
  • Alcohol extracted tincture have a naturally longer are more shelf stable and have an extended shelf life.

    The whole package!

    Mika J on 26th Mar 2022

    I first used this for morning sickness, then used it for colic, then teething. It works amazingly well for all of that and so much more. We have used it for motion sickness and for other nausea issues. Another great tincture, The Herbal Toad. Thank you.
