Dr Shades Bitters x by QuickSilver Scientific 1.7 oz
BitterX comes as a sequel to the popular Quicksilver Scientific product, Dr. Shades Bitters No. 9. While Dr. Shades Bitters No. 9 is an excellent support for digestive function and overall health, a slightly more bitter blend of synergistic herbs to support detoxification was a necessary addition to the Quicksilver product line. BitterX is the next level bitter, with a quartet of strong digestive, liver, gallbladder, and kidney supportive botanicals, slightly tempered for flavor with a touch of sweet orange essential oil.
The four-fold army in BitterX is comprised of dandelion, gentian root, solidago (goldenrod), and myrrh, delivered in the advanced liposomal format that Quicksilver Scientific is well known for. This blend of bitters has a stronger effect of activating the transporters and may be necessary to move bile, and toxins, from the liver and out through the gallbladder.* Dandelion steps out in front, carrying with it a shield of hepatoprotective, renal, and bile flow stimulating benefits.* Gentian,well known as the most bitter herb, also is an important player on this detoxification team. In addition to promoting healthy bile flow, gentian has been observed to increase levels of glutathione and other antioxidant-supporting enzymes.* Solidago, a classic herb used to support the urinary system, may promote diuresis and with this the elimination of toxins, simultaneously increasing glutathione S-transferase activity, a critical enzyme in phase II detoxification.* Finally, the oleo gum resin of myrrh may bring up the end, with bile flow supporting and microbial balancing qualities.*
