These modern-day digestive bitters are designed to kick-start slow digestion and stimulate your digestive enzymes. A natural blend of burdock, dandelion, clove, and licorice in an apple cider vinegar base. Perfect for on-the-go, to be used before any meal.
Why It Works:
The Nue Co's blend draws inspiration from the traditional “bitters medicine” popular in the 19th century. Used for everything from boosting immune function, to curbing sugar cravings and supporting digestion.
Digest Start triggers our bitter taste receptors, T2Rs. Our tongue is packed with T2Rs and when these are stimulated a nerve signal sparks in critical areas in the brain, specifically the hypothalamus where the vagus nerve is located. The signals stimulate the production of digestive juices, stomach acid, bile, and our digestive enzymes.
T2Rs are also all along the gut passage, but their roles are different. When these gut receptors are stimulated by bitter compounds, cells studded with T2Rs secrete hormones into our bloodstream that contribute to feelings of fullness and satiety.
Burdock And Dandelion: Used traditionally as digestive remedies for hundreds of years, the bitter taste of both these roots triggers our T2Rs, bitter taste receptors that stimulate our digestive juices + enzymes.
Licorice Root And Clove: Licorice Root has a long history of use as a stomach-soothing ingredient, particularly in Ayurvedic medicine, while clove is thought to help settle the stomach and ease digestion as well as reduce nausea.
How to use:
Take daily or as needed, up to three times per day. Use one full dropper onto the tongue, 15 minutes before eating. Add to any routine for gut support. Works well with Debloat+ for relieving bloating and supporting digestion.
