You develop a bitter tongue after a certain illness as a result of the medication you were taking.
Most times because our body is trying to fight harmful cells, in the process, this affects our taste buds and every food we eat might taste is little bitter than normal or we might not even have the appetite to eat at all.
Here are few home remedies to help you get rid of bitter taste after illness
1. Eat lots of protein
Consuming foods that are rich in protein such as beans, chicken, fish, eggs, lean pork, lean beef, dairy products, and the likes will help improve your taste buds.
Include in your diet foods that are rich in zinc such as dark chocolate, broccoli, okra, spinach, shellfish, oysters, oatmeal because these foods contain neuropeptides that help to stimulate food intake, making your taste buds much better.
3. Have enough fruits
Eating fruits regularly helps the human body system and also helps to improve the taste buds after an illness. No wonder doctors advise taking lots of fruits during and after falling ill. Include fruits like oranges, pawpaw, strawberries, lemons, bananas, and so on.
