➢ 2018 Grand Prize Winner: Carolina Bitters by Red Moon Herbs

Red Moon Herbs launched a new Carolina Bitters blend in October 2018.  All the fresh herbs used are NC-grown or wildcrafted and handcrafted in peak season with organic cane alcohol and water. Gentian (Gentiana andrewsii), dandelion (Taraxacum officinale), reishi (Ganoderma tsugae), artichoke (Cynara scolymus) and rosehips (Rosa multiflora) comprise this digestive support formula representing dedicated farmers who work the land come rain or shine, heat or cold, sweet or bitter. Bitters ingested before, with, or after a meal have long been heralded as an incredible aid to the digestive system, promoting the body's ability to rest, digest, and fully assimilate nutrition.
