Gallexier® Kräuterbitter
(Gallexier® Herbal bitters)

An excellent apperitive and aid to digestion

Bitters are a solution to better liver function and improved digestion.

The liver performs the vital task of detoxifying the body, a function essential for good health. Gallexier contains artichoke leaves, dandelion and 10 other medicinal bitter herbs known for centuries as being beneficial for the liver and gallbladder.

What is Gallexier?

Gallexier is an alcohol-free aperitif that can be taken before or after meals, consisting of artichoke, dandelion and other bitter herbs that combine to give support to the gastrointestinal function. It helps to prevent indigestion and to relieve the unpleasant sensation of fullness and bloating experienced after heavy or fatty meals. Among the best digestive aids are herbal bitters however, much of their benefit can be lost if you take them in pill form. It is actually the bitter taste in the mouth that triggers the majority of the benefits.

We have 4 different types of taste buds on the surface of our tongues, to discern what is wholesome and what is not good for us. These papillae allow us to taste sour, sweet, salty, and bitter.
In our diet today, there exists almost no bitter taste, no bitter substances at all. In general, we have overloaded the sweet side and eliminated bitter foods from our diet. It is fairly obvious that a lack of bitter taste has had a dramatic effect on our metabolic system especially after a few generations.

What Does it Do?

Just what are the benefits of herbal bitters? Bitters stimulate the appetite and increase digestive juices from the pancreas and liver. They also stimulate the activity of the gallbladder and promote the necessary bile flow for the absorption of fats and fat-soluble vitamins. They prevent thickening of biliary liquid thus removing the chief cause of gallstones and gravel and give active support to the detoxifying activity of the liver and promote the digestion of fatty and heavy foods.

Bitters have the following actions on the body\'s organs and systems:

  • The salivary glands are stimulated to secrete.
  • The mucosa are activated to secrete more.
  • Motor changes in the stomach and gall bladder are brought about.
  • The nervous system with its sympathetic regulation, is activated.
  • The liver is stimulated to produce more gall, and in its overall activity.

Bitter Herbs and The Liver

A bitter taste has a profound effect on your digestive system, especially the liver, the keeper of metabolic balance within the body. The liver's job is to produce fluids required for proper and complete digestion, as well as to rid your system of dangerous toxins. Even if you eat a good natural diet, artificial ingredients and chemical residues can find their way into your system. It's so important to cleanse your body of these unwanted substances as soon as possible. Our liver has several tremendous jobs to do and it needs the stimulation of bitter herbs in order to do its job properly.

  • It stores usable glycogen, copper and iron to feed the cells.
  • It metabolises proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.
  • It removes poisonous substances from the blood safely.
  • It is the metabolic laboratory of the body.
  • It produces gall which is indispensable for the fractioning and digestion of fatty substances in our intestines as it is the most bitter liquid in our body.
