Wormwood usually grows on roadsides and waste places, and can be found growing over the greater part of Europe. In Britain it appears to be truly indigenous near the sea, though it is found all over the country. Wormwood is classified as a bitter herb and is used to increase appetite and to assist with digestive disorders.

Research has shown that when bitter substances are detected by the taste bud receptors at the back of the tongue prior to a meal, they have a priming effect on the upper digestive function - this is most noticeable if digestion is below optimum. Nerve reflexes from the taste buds stimulate the vagus nerve, which is responsible for signalling many functions needed during digestion.

Medicinal Use
Wormwood is used as a bitter herb to improve appetite. It stimulates the secretion of saliva and bile production and is considered to have a priming effect on the upper digestive function. It relieves indigestion, heartburn and reflux, and helps maintain healthy digestive function. Claims are based on traditional use in western herbal medicine.

Dosage
Infuse one 5 mL level metric teaspoon with one cup of boiling water, steep for 10-15 minutes and strain.
Adults and children over 12: drink one cup 1/2 hour before meals to stimulate appetite or after meals to relieve indigestion.
Children from 4 to 12: drink half the adult dose.

Precautions
Use only as directed.
If symptoms persist, consult your healthcare practitioner.
Contraindications: gastric or duodenal ulcers, pregnancy, lactation.

Active Ingredient
Each 5 mL level metric spoon contains Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) herb top fl. dry 1 g (1000 mg).
