Taste and Immunity - June 17th, 4-5pm


Join Guido Masé, co-founder of Urban Moonshine to talk about the power of bitters for immunity.

Using chronic sinus infections as a jumping-off point, we will explore how the use of herbs topically and through inhalation can impact allergies, asthma, and chronic infection through a range of mechanisms.

We won't cover the use of bitters in gut health: this is a well-described link already. But we will talk about practical strategies for engaging with the bitter taste receptors in our airways, GI tract, and liver for relieving chronic infection and congestion.

Gentian neti anyone?

All participants will get a $5 discount on any Urban Moonshine Bitters for taking the class.
