Fall is a beautiful time of year when the trees let go of their leaves, the light becomes soft, and the planet feels peaceful. As we celebrate the harvest season, it's important to keep our digestive system strong and steady. One of the easiest ways to do this is by incorporating bitters into your diet.
When we taste bitter our digestive system is activated. Enzymes and hormones are released for optimal digestion reducing gas, bloating, heartburn, indigestion and stomach upset. Research shows that bitters reduce appetite, consumption and waistlines. Bitters are also effective to lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
Our liver also responds to bitter. Bitter enhances the flushing of inflammatory compounds and irritating substances from our body. The liver detoxification function is optimized, blood is cleansed and inflammation is reduced. This is why bitter herbs are recommended to alleviate headache, pain, fatigue, allergies, asthma and skin conditions including acne.
Incorporating bitters into your diet and lifestyle is an excellent way to strengthen your digestion and thus optimizing your well-being. Our clinic carries a variety of organic bitters formulated to help you feel your best through the holiday season.
