Dr. Jill’s Commentary
If you’ve happened to hear me speak on a video blog, medical presentation, or podcast interview, you’ve likely heard me fawn over bitters. I love to recommend bitters. While not so subtle in flavor, their ability to subtly correct digestive and detoxification imbalances is nothing short of miraculous.
You may be familiar with bitters from mixed drink recipes that call for a splash of bitters to pop the flavor. Well bitters do more than that! They get the digestive juices flowing, which triggers many downstream effects – one of which is to encourage the liver to make and move bile – a critical component of mold detoxification. Bitters were traditionally added to alcohol drinks to reduce the toxic effects of alcohol. They have the same benefit for mold.
Strangely enough, we tend to crave bitter flavors the more toxic we are. Why do you think there’s been a rise in the consumption of familiar bitters, such as coffee and chocolate, in concert with our increasingly polluted and “chemical-ed” world? We need detox help.
I recommend bitters in liquid form because it’s the very act of experiencing the taste of bitter that exerts its action downstream. I like this bitter combination which elegantly balances bitter herbs with a little bit of sweet, because who doesn’t like a little sweet. A few drops on the tongue before meals does the trick!
