Commonly derived from the extracts of the bark, leaves, roots or flowers of bitter-tasting plants, bitter herbs have been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurveda Medicines before a meal to support normal digestion and overall gastrointestinal health.*
Digestive bitters simply stimulate bitter receptors in your mouth, tongue, stomach, gallbladder and pancreas to help stomach acid, bile and enzymes quickly break down food and assist in the proper absorption of nutrients and minerals. This process may also support normal detoxification processes, and, thanks to the gut-brain connection, mood and stress.* Bitters also allow food to remain in the stomach longer, ensuring that it is optimally digested, which helps with occasional gas and bloating while promoting regular bowel movements.*
Containing a blend of eight botanicals in a base of lemon juice, natural mandarin flavor and citrus extract, Dr. Mercola Organic Digestive Bitters is a USDA Certified Organic, alcohol-free formula that includes time-honored favorites like Burdock Root, Dandelion Leaf and Root, Fennel Seed, Gentian Root, Ginger, Juniper Berry, Yellow Dock Root and Orange Peel.
Organic Digestive Bitters is made using a unique counter-current extraction process, a proprietary technology that gently produces the liquid extracts and concentrates without sacrificing flavor and botanical qualities. This process avoids excessive heat and requires minimal solvent, resulting in a more bioactive end product.
