The truth is, not a single product, natural or otherwise (including every one mentioned on this site) is capable of healing the human body. Neither a herb, a clay, a vitamin or mineral supplement, a seaweed or algae, an organic food, nor any other substance is capable of healing the body. In every instance, the body will take the nutrition given it, break it down into millions of pieces...
Bitter herbs and bitter foods stimulate the bitter taste receptors, not only on the tongue, but also within the stomach, intestines, and pancreas. The stimulation of these bitter taste receptors activates salivary and gastric secretions, preparing the digestive tract to receive food and break it down into nutrients.
The bitter herbs in Digestive Bitters help improve regularity & digestion, increase the body's natural digestive enzyme production, reduce gas, bloat, heartburn, and indigestion, and clears debris from the bloodstream (as a result of increased bile production).
The action of bitter herbs also gradually dissolves kidney & gallbladder stones, while gently cleansing the liver, blood, and kidneys.
Bitter herbs and digestive spices are Nature's original way to restore effective digestion by enhancing digestive fluids in the body naturally.
Bitter herbs stimulate bile production from the liver, through the gall bladder (where it is concentrated 5-20 times), and into the small intestines.
The primary function of bile (of which your body produces about a quart a day), is to emulsify your fats and oils, thus preparing these cholesterol sources to be converted into the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, cholesterol-based steroidal hormones (estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisol, adrenaline, etc.), and provide fatty acids for the body's numerous metabolic functions.
Bile is also the body's natural laxative, so Digestive Bitters is slightly laxative, and will help move constipating foods (like meat, eggs, sugar, nuts, yogurt, cheese, bananas, etc.) through the system faster.
Digestive Bitters is not habit forming (does not contain cascara or senna) and can be taken daily. The general recommendation is to take some with every meal and just before bed.
Taken at least first thing in the morning and just before bed is helpful to resolve most any constipation issue. For additional support when needed, Ancient Mineral Blend and Herbal C further enhance the fullness and frequency of bowel action.
Take 2-4 capsules (1/2 to 1 teaspoon/2.5-5 ml) with every meal. Optionally 1-2 capsules (1/4 -1/2 teaspoon/1.25-2.5 ml) can be taken between meals to help clear the blood of undigested food and separate contents of one meal from the next.
As a general rule, do not take more than 12 capsules or 1 tablespoon cumulatively during a single day. Excessive use of a bile stimulant can result in pain in the liver and gallbladder, mimicking the symptoms of gallstones.
The reason for this is the commonly known understanding that taking too much of anything creates the symptoms of what it helps at the ideal dose.
