The water isn’t for digestion, it’s necessary because of the flushing action the bitters have on the liver.
I found them to be fairly sweet and didn’t get that gagging feeling that I assume is the nerves being stimulated.
I found them quite bitter tasting for a few weeks until I grew used to the taste, but I never once experienced a feeling of gagging. I can’t see how a feeling of gagging would be a sign of whether or not they perform as they should.
