Also available in Alcohol Free. Our internal organs, and hence our whole system, suffer if we don't have the bitter taste element in our diet. A lack of it results in symptoms like poor digestion, fatigue, and irregularity, which can make us feel out of sorts, low in energy and sometimes just downright awful. Traditionally used to help digestion, Swedish Bitters can promote regularity, maintain and improve health, and keep energy levels up. Something is Missing:Did you know that we have lost our understanding of just how important the bitter taste is to our bodies? Our ancestors understood about bitter taste. By including bitter foods (mostly roots) in their diet, they maintained the balanced functioning of the digestive organs. Poor digestion, so common now, was foreign to them. Bitter foods are foreign to us. Those that do remain in our diet, such as artichokes, watercress and endive lettuce, are specialty rather than staple foods.The Rich Taste of BittersIs there a way to get rich-tasting bitter flavour into our diet? Yes, through Swedish Bitters, a very special herbal elixer. The truth of Swedish Bitters lies in its rich, bitter taste and in its traditionally proven effectiveness.What is the Benefit of Bitters?We have 4 different types of taste buds on the surface of our tongues, to discern what is wholesome and what is not good for us. These papillae allow us to taste sour, sweet, salty, and bitter. In our diet today, there exists almost no bitter taste, no bitter substances at all. In general, we have overloaded the sweet side and eliminated bitter foods from our diet. It is fairly obvious that a lack of bitter taste has had a dramatic effect on our metabolic system especially after a few generations.What is the Role of Bitters and the Liver?A bitter taste has a profound effect on your digestive system, especially the liver, the keeper of metabolic balance within the body. The liver's job is to produce fluids required for proper and complete digestion, as well as to rid your system of dangerous toxins. Even if you eat a good natural diet, artificial ingredients and chemical residues can find their way into your system. It's so important to cleanse your body of these unwanted substances as soon as possible. Our liver has several tremendous jobs to do and it needs the stimulation of bitter herbs in order to do its job properly. It stores usable glycogen, copper and iron to feed the cells It metabolizes proteins, carbohydrates, and fats It removes poisonous substances from the blood safely It is the metabolic laboratory of the body. It produces gall which is indispensible for the fractioning and digestion of fatty substances in our intestines as it is the most bitter liquid in our body.Benefits: Helps those who suffer from chronic metabolic problems and digestive difficulties which lend themselves to increased tension and stress.
