This proprietary blend of four bitter herbs includes dandelion, gentian, solidago, and myrrh. Sweet orange essential oil is added for flavor and it can have a calming, uplifting effect.
These liposomal bitters are designed for enhanced absorption and nearly instantaneous effect.
BitterX is a stronger bitter combination than Quicksilver Scientific’s Bitters No. 9.
The difference is clear: this product’s clear consistency can only be achieved with liposomes that are small enough to pass between cells. The smaller, more stable vesicles begin absorbing as soon as they hit the mouth.*
This product uses phosphatidylcholine from purified sunflower seed lecithin. It does not contain gluten.
Dandelion has been shown to support detoxification by upregulating antioxidant pathways, aiding in healthy kidney function to enhance urinary elimination of toxins, and having hepatoprotective properties. This bitter herb has also been shown to support a balanced inflammatory response, another critical aspect of optimal detoxification.
Gentian is a full-bodied bitter botanical, containing the bioactive compounds gentiopicroside and gentiolactone. These compounds have been shown to be hepatoprotective in endotoxicity, supporting healthy bile flow, and upregulating antioxidant enzyme activity.
Solidago, a flowering plant with tiny, bright yellow blossoms, is known for supporting urinary tract health. It aids in healthy excretion and toxin elimination while supporting the activity of glutathione S-transferase, a critical enzyme in phase II detoxification. The bioactive polyphenols in Solidago have also been shown to offer antimicrobial benefits.
Myrrh Essential Oil
The essential oil of myrrh, a resinous substance derived from the Commiphora mukul tree, supports healthy bile flow by increasing the expression of the human bile salt export pump and promotes a healthy microbial balance.
