Bitters that aid better health

In age-old medicinal traditions around the world, particularly Ayurveda from India, Zhongguo the ancient Chinese science of medicine, and Kampo or Japanese herbal medicine, Digestive Bitters are an important remedy for digestive ailments. It is obvious that our ancestors sustained themselves on foods that were high in bitters, for millennia.

A medical remedy that has been used to cure gut and stomach ailments, along with other microbial and inflammatory issues, Digestive Bitters are extracts of the leaves, flowers, bark, fruit or roots of plants that have a bitter taste. They are a distilled-down, concentrated blend of bitter herbs and plants that have healing properties.

Ayurvedic and Naturopathic forms of medicine consider bitter taste as beneficial for health. Consuming a small quantity of bitter substances regularly can keep us healthy and disease-free.

How digestive bitters work

Research shows that much like the tongue,our stomach, gut, pancreas, and liver also react in a particular way when we consume something bitter. The bitter taste signals to the organs that it must dilute the substance with the production of certain enzymes. This in turn leads to the production of hormones involved in appetite stimulation which is followed by a feeling of fullness. It is one of the reasons why scientists have been developing treatments - “bitter pills”, for obesity.

The entire process is initiated by the action of the salivary gland in the mouth, the production of digestive enzymes in the stomach, and bile in the liver. The action balances hydrochloric acid (HCl) levels in the stomach.

The stimulation of these receptors induces the gut to absorb nutrients more effectively,the liver to naturally detoxify itself, and help the body to release accumulated stress.
