How does the bitter taste ‘work’ in our body?When the tongue detects bitterness, it increases salivary secretions, which causes a cascade of digestive secretions from HCL to bile to pancreatic enzymes; and, as a result, promotes digestion. Increased bile production stimulates ‘elimination’. Bile is actually our ‘built in’ resident laxative! When our “plumbing is humming”, many of our body’s systems work better. All is connected!
