Bitter foods and our liver are best friends. Bitters invigorate, detoxify, regenerate and promote natural detoxification. Not only do they provide a generous serving of vitamins A, C and K, but they also provide your body with calcium, potassium, magnesium, folic acid, fiber and plant sodium.
Since bitter foods are not very tasty in their raw state, you can super combine them with other foods.
It’s not that hard to get used to bitter flavors, in fact after a while you don’t want to miss them at all.
Foods like kale, grapefruit, chicory, arugula, fennel or artichokes. (you can find 5 great recpts here) provide a great base for many recipes. But also as a tea in the evening they can be integrated super and help especially at night your body to come to rest and regenerate.
So the next time you shy away from bitter foods, remember how much they stimulate your digestion, cleanse your liver and ultimately help you live longer and healthier. Bitters are also the perfect helpers when it comes to regulating your weight and keeping your gut healthy.
