DESCRIPTION Yarrow is classified as one of the bitter herbs. Other herbs in this category include Centaury, Gentian and Dandelion. These have the common ability to stimulate digestive processes and improving the breakdown of food.
HOW IT WORKS Yarrow contains volatile oils and flavonoids. These have an anti- spasmodic and anti-inflammatory action on the digestive system, easing colic and reducing flatulence.
Bitters stimulate the taste buds. This triggers off a reflex nerve action, which increases the flow of saliva and stomach enzymes. The sum total of this is an improvement in the digestive function of the stomach and small intestines.
