Each 1 mL of BitterX delivers 410 mg of the proprietary blend of herbal extracts. A serving size is 2 pumps. Each bottle contains 50 servings.
The moment bitters touch our tongue they light up our body and brain. We have over two dozen specialized receptors that detect bitter molecules, lining our tongues, nose, sinuses, lungs, heart, intestines and more. This proprietary blend of four bitter herbs includes dandelion that can support liver, kidney and bladder; gentian that can support healthy bile flow; solidago that can support the urinary tract and kidneys; and myrrh for its broad microbial action. Sweet orange essential oil is added for flavor and it can have a calming, uplifting effect.
Because we have bitter receptors throughout our body that can respond instantly to bitter compounds, Dr. Shade developed our liposomal BitterX for enhanced absorption and nearly instantaneous effect. Liposomes maximize bioavailability and transport to cells. As a result, BitterX may offer enhanced uptake and effectiveness.
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.
