The basic idea behind bitters is that they stimulate your taste buds to
create more saliva (spit), which in turn jumpstarts your digestive system.
You might not realize it, but saliva is one of the keys to digestion,
contributing to the breakdown of starches and fats.
10 BENEFITS OF BITTERS
Improves protein digestion and mineral absorption
Improves breakdown of fats and fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K
Reduce gas and bloating
Relieve occasional heartburn
Promote regular bowel movements
Reduce food sensitivities
Breakdown microbes and prevent SIBO & yeast overgrowth
In Ayurvedic tradition, bitters are known to reduce sweet cravings
and regulate blood sugar
In Chinese medicine, bitters are cooling and remove “heat” from the
body (aka inflammation)
Eclectics promote digestive bitters for improved detoxification,
healthy skin, improved joint pain, and a healthier mood.
Bitters are best taken before a meal to support digestion. Take Digestive Bitters by spraying 3 times into your mouth. If you suffer from heartburn, start with a very low dose
and increase slowly as tolerated.
Possible Side Effects:
1. They can cause tummy troubles
If your gastrointestinal tract is working well on its own — or
if it’s already working overtime — consuming bitters may
actually backfire. Bitters create more gastric acid in your
stomach, which can actually contribute to digestive issues in
people who are predisposed to them:
- Acid Reflux
“If you’re already prone to these things, bitters aggravate
them by making your digestive tract a little bit more
reactive,” Czerwony cautions.
2. They can interfere with medications
Think about bitters like you would any other supplement, that is to say, they can interact negatively with medications
you’re already taking. And again, you should always check with
your doctor before giving them a try.
“Bitters can react with blood pressure medications, insulin,
hypoglycemic, and other medications, so it’s really important
that you be cautious and talk to your doctor before taking
anything them,” Czerwony advises.
3. They can worsen existing conditions
Skip the bitters if you have any of the following conditions:
It’s also important to remember that bitters are made with
alcohol, so you shouldn’t take them if you’re pregnant or
nursing, or if you’re in recover.
