If you are going for the medicine in foods and teas, go for the bitter taste; that holds the greatest medicinal value. Would Hippocrates be rolling in his grave over this one? I don’t think so.
We all know the saying that the most bitter tasting medicine is the best for you; did you know this it true? Sambong tea is extremely bitter to the taste, but it is a miracle tea for the kidneys. Bitter Melon is extremely bitter to eat, and very good for you. It cleans your blood, therefore reversing anemia, and offers many other benefits; including acting as a powerful medicine, in fighting diabetes.
There are many teas, herbs, and vegetables that are the best for health, yet they offer a very bitter taste. The best things in life are bitter? Perhaps, bitter is better.
