Significance of Plant Bitters In The Field of Pharmacognosy
Sharma Manish K, Bachwani Mukesh
Bitters are imperative; everyone needs some bitters in their diet. No
traditional culture could have imagined a diet virtually devoid of any
bitter foods—as we seem to have established in most modern diets.
The quality of a plant’s bitterness is widely variable in both character
and degree. Many bitter herbs are more accurately referred to as
foods, while others are decidedly medicinal in their action. Bitter foods
should be considered essential to good nutrition, whereas bitters of a
more medicinal nature should be reserved to address specific
concerns not remedied by dietary bitters. The bitters have been
proven to be effective in curing all allergic, metabolic and
immunological conditions where the diagnosis points to the digestion.
