Bitter herbs are used as a tonic, a digestive aid, and also to help assimilate food. They can stimulate our digestive systems to function at their peak by increasing the production of digestive juices and the dispatch of stored bile (necessary for fat digestion and sugar metabolism) from the gallbladder to the small intestine after meals, thus aiding nutrient assimilation. HealthLine provides an excellent recipe for bitters featuring seven powerful herbs and spices to get that immune system back into is proper working order.
