Bitter substances
Bitter substances aid the entire digestion process and affect all other bodily functions. Their bitter taste stimulates the stomach, liver, gall bladder and pancreas. This leads to the production of vital digestive juices and enzymes. Bile, insulin and gastric juices are also produced. These substances are important for the absorption and utilisation of nutrients in the body. Bitter substances also boost the detoxification function of the liver, so that harmful substances can be excreted. When bitter substances are absorbed, basic compounds also enter the body and help to lower acidity levels. Bitter substances aid the circulation of blood to the organs and improve their function. They have a positive effect on the cardiovascular system and keep the blood vessels flexible. They also regulate blood pressure.
