The Swedish Bitters name, at first seems likely that the ingredients come from the country of Sweden (Swedish), but this is not the case. The name derives from the Swedish physicians Dr. Claus (Klaus) Samst. The elixir is said to be the creation of Swiss physician, Dr. Phillipus Paracelsus, who practiced in the 1500s. However, it wasn’t until the 18th century that it was formally labelled Swedish Bitters by Swedish physicians - Dr. Claus (Klaus) Samst.

The mixture with the different medicinal herbs was already long known in the family of the Swedish health-care professionals, but forgotten.

The physicians, Dr. Claus (Klaus) and Dr. Urban Samst Hjärn found this in the 18 Century, returned and helped many people with different problems and illnesses.

It is believed that the formulation of a similar drug also belongs to the physician Philippus Theophrastus Bombast von Hohenheim Aureolus (short: Paracelsus), who lived in the 16th Century and suffered much of a criticism from pharmacists and doctors, despite his successes in Herbalism, it was considered as an alternative to traditional medicine.

Dr. Samst died at the age of 104 years in a riding accident. It is said that his ancestors lived a long life and have reached a biblical age.

A renaissance of Swedish Bitters herbs was done by Maria Treben that examined Samst’s “old manuscript” which detailed the efficacy of the bitters on over 40 medical conditions. Maria Treben published the recipe of the mixture in her book "Health from God's Pharmacy", which remarkably run out of over eight million copies. Her specialty was herbal medicine and alternative treatment methods (for the priest and Hydotherapeut Sebastian Kneipp).

    After doing a bit of research I have an impression that not all bitter is actually made for “health” reasons… there are bitters that are more medicinal and some are used for taste! Yep, that is right! I guess people add them to coffee, tea… you name it, for liquorice taste. This particular bitter is made for more medicinal reasons which in my case is what I was looking for. Also the price is good!!!!.. basically if you use this packaged substance with 1 or 1.5 liters of vodka…. I mean, that is WHOLE LOT of bitter for this price!!!:) After ordering this bitter few times and using it regularly, I would say my immune system is really doing good, liver, heart… I don’t know… I like it!:)

    My name is Jens Demmer from Germany and I made a lot of wonderful experiences with Schwedenbitter over the last decade.
    I read in the news of Brittany Maynard. She has a tumor in her brain and decided to die October 31 in Oregon by free will.

    Do you see a chance to advise her to use Schwedenbitter?

    She is in Portland, Oregon.

    With Kind Regards

    I’ve been searching for natural immune boosting products for a long time. Frankly speaking I’ve tried a lot, unfortunately my money and efforts to improve the immunity had gone to waste ;-((( I wanted something that really works and made with natural herbal ingredients. My friend recommended me Swedish Bitters and assured in its quality and good results. Of course I didn’t believe any more, but she insisted. Thanks Goodness, she was right and to my big surprise the price was good!!! Now everything in my body goes right! No side effects, no dependence. I like to make the tincture myself and I’m always sure about its quality, because I see the ingredients and even more I can experiment with them! It’s really a great idea to have all them packed in individual plastic bags. I can’t put everything into words, so just thank you for everything you do here!!! And yes, I love your blog!

    Swedish Bitters is an outstanding digestive aid, as well it provides numerous other health benefits, used both internally and externally. In addition to information on this site, there is a whole chapter on Swedish Bittes in an excellent book called “The Family Herbal” by Barbara and Peter Theiss it’s A Guide to Natural Health Care for Yourself and Your Children from Europe’s Leading Herbalists.

    Before I discovered WellbeingHerbs.com, I purchased cut herbs for homemade Swedish Bitters from several different sources in the US and abroad. There was little consistency in quality, freshness, potency in formula and it showed in the end-product. The only thing I could count on was the high price, although I don’t mean to be so negative.

    What I want to point out about Swedish Bitters from WellbeingHerbs.com is the reliable high quality, freshness and potency of the herbs that I’ve been buying for quite some time now. The 22 ingredient formula is unique, effective and more palatable than anything I’ve tried. (I do modify it slightly by adding a bit of saffron and manna, while cutting down on the Kandis.) The care with which each ingredient is individually packaged demonstrates a commitment to offer only the best. The extra effort shows in everything but the price, their price is the most reasonable I’ve found. So buy your herbs here and good health to you!

    Just want to say thank you! I am not a fan of writing reviews, but felt like I should let people know this. Not sure what Swedish Bitter has in it that makes a such effect, but I just made my mix, and started taking it daily as proposed on this website. I am a 37 year old male, I lost 7 lb already, without changing my diet at all, and every time I eat, I feel very light…. not hungry, but light. Getting the feeling like everything I eat gets digested really well! Really like how I feel…. That’s all I wanted to let you know.

    I have made the Swedish Bitters from these herbs and found them to be excellent. My son and I take Swedish Bitters daily and using this product is so much more cost effective than buying bottles of pre made SB,
    Plus by using this product you have the leftover herbs when can also be used for healing purposes. I am very happy with these herbs.

    I didn’t know what to expect from this Swedish Bitters potion when I first started taking it. I’ve been exposed to black mold for several years without knowing it and this treatment with Swedish Bitters helped to make two particular symptoms disappear. One of them was night time anxiety- I would wake up in the middle of the night worrying about stuff that was no worry in the day time. The other one was loss of dexterity – I felt like I was in a mental fog and my hands lost the ability to grasp properly and I was dropping things if I weren’t careful. After taking a course of this treatment both of these symptoms disappeared. I am as well taking it on as needed basis to deter cold or flu, and it seems to be very helpful as I think it is boosting my metabolism. I take a sip as soon as I get first symptoms and I can say it’s been pretty effective for that as well as I usually only have to do it once and avoid being sick due too cold symptoms.
