Description
 
Bitter herbs broadly encompass many botanicals, but are most often thought of as herbs with effects on the gastrointestinal system. Herbal bitters have a long history of use, and are commonly used in cocktails known as aperitifs and digestifs which are served before and after meals to stimulate appetite and digestion. However, bitters herbs act far beyond the digestive system, and may impact the liver, kidney, skin, lymphatic, and circulatory systems. Bitter taste receptors have been shown to trigger a wide variety of biological processes including regulation of blood sugar and activation of the immune system in response to infections. Gastrointestinal health is important for detoxification, as inflammation in the intestine increases susceptibility of the organism to toxicity from external and internal agents. Proteins important for all phases of detoxification are expressed at a high level in the small intestinal mucosa. Optimal and integrated functioning of the intestines, liver, and kidneys is crucial for successful detoxification.
