These miraculous herbs offer us the gift of a very under-used and under-appreciated taste.  Bitter is the flavor that is suggested in Chinese medicine when the weather is turning colder at the end of autumn. “Bitter challenges the body, alerting it through taste that a complex food is being ingested,” says the Urban Moonshine website. When the bitter flavor hits the tongue, it signals the body to produce bile and enzymes for digestion, thus making it easier on the body to break down food.  Bitters can help with such digestive complications as acid reflux, heartburn, indigestion, gas and cramping.
