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 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, promotes diuresis and with this the elimination of toxins, simultaneously increasing glutathione S-transferase activity, a critical enzyme in phase II detoxification. The oleo gum resin of myrrh brings up the end, with bile flow supporting and microbial balancing qualities.
For those who need a bigger bitter, BitterX is the turnkey to supporting the body in the critical processes necessary for effective detoxification.

Not for me
by Kate -
This product may be good quality, but I did not respond well to it - stopped use.
Good product with a high sticker price

Dr.Shade's Bitter X,like Shade's #9 , is an excellent vegetarian-friendly product for helping digest food. Some of us do not make enough stomach acid and have acid reflux without a little help. It has a pleasant orange taste,nothing bitter tasting about it that my tongue noticed.It works well. The downside is the price; this product costs a small fortune regardless of the source. At least here at Professional Supplement,I get the 12% discount and free shipping.
