The discovery of bitter receptors in body tissues other than the mouth is truly exciting, because it raises the possibility that bitter compounds may have more wide-ranging effects in the body.
Palmyra, WI (PRWEB) April 18, 2016
Standard Process Inc. introduces DiGest Forte, the newest product formula from herbal supplement manufacturer MediHerb®. New research identifies bitter receptors that are located throughout the digestive tract and involved in many of the body’s metabolic processes. Based on the new research, MediHerb formulated DiGest Forte to offer a blend of herbs intended to stimulate appetite and support healthy digestion.*
“Bitters have a long history of use in supporting healthy digestion,” said Kerry Bone, director of research and development and co-founder of MediHerb. “The discovery of bitter receptors in body tissues other than the mouth is truly exciting, because it raises the possibility that bitter compounds may have more wide-ranging effects in the body.”
MediHerb reformulated its traditional bitters formula, DiGest, to provide a broader range of bitter principles to interact with more bitter receptors. The DiGest Forte formula replaces dandelion, milk thistle and chamomile with feverfew and wormwood, while still including original formula ingredients gentian root, ginger rhizome, tangerine fruit peel and fruit peel cold-pressed essential oil. This formulation and the compounds within it help:
- Stimulate gastric juice output and appetite
- Support healthy digestion and intestinal function
- Promote healthy gastrointestinal tone
- Cleanse the liver
- Promote normal response to environmental stresses*
DiGest Forte is available to healthcare professionals in a 40-tablet bottle size. Standard Process is the exclusive United States distributor for MediHerb products. Visit mediherb.com for more information on DiGest Forte and other therapies from MediHerb.
