Source of bile salts, digestive enzymes and organic beet concentrate with SOD and catalase. Consider whenever the gallbladder has been removed or the need for supplemental bile salts is indicated.
Bile is needed for the efficient uptake of oily nutrients. Produced by the liver and stored in the gall bladder, bile is released into the small intestine in response to hormones, such as cholecystokinin, when fat enters the intestine, where it acts as an emulsifying agent. Most of the bile salts released into the intestine are reabsorbed in the lower ileum, where bacteria can reduce free bile acids to lithocholate and deoxycholate. The absorbed bile acids and salts are transported via the portal vein to the liver, where hopefully they are efficiently extracted and conjugated with amino acids. They are then secreted again as bile, which is returned to the gall bladder. Generally, bile salts are recirculated 2 to 3 times through the liver with each meal. Bile insufficiency has been associated with constipation, light-colored or clay-colored stools, greasy or floating stools, and generalized intolerance of fatty foods.
