Who Needs Gallbladder Nutrients
Do you experience occasional bloating, heaviness, or pain in your upper right side after high-fat meals? These side effects can indicate low bile production or sluggish gallbladder function. Even with gallbladder removal, you may benefit from nutrients that support healthy bile production.*
Gallbladder Nutrients is a powerful herbal formula that supports your liver’s bile production. It also promotes healthy bile flow from your gallbladder into the small intestine. In those with their gallbladder removed, it supports bile flow from your liver into the bile duct.*
Bile helps to break down fats from food in the small intestine. Do you eat fried foods, foods cooked in oil, or foods with a high concentration of fats (like salmon or pork chops)? These high-fat foods can cause your gallbladder to work overtime in an effort to produce enough bile. Due to its ability to regulate which microbes can survive in the upper intestinal tract, bile also supports the healthy balance of microbes in the your small intestines.*
There are two primary concerns with bile. First, are you producing enough bile using nutrients like choline, taurine, and glycine? Second, does your gallbladder contract and empty itself when it needs to?*
When bile production is reduced, it can lead to an overgrowth of small intestinal bacteria (SIBO) and an inability to fully digest fats. Likewise, if your bile function is slowed, it can impact fat digestion and bacterial balance.*
Gallbladder Nutrients provides the nutrient building blocks you need for normal bile production. It includes herbs that support both healthy bile production in the liver and bile flow from your gallbladder.*
Why Gallbladder Nutrients Works
All day long, your liver uses phosphatidylcholine, cholesterol, taurine, glycine, and other ingredients to make bile. This bile is collected in a sac called the gallbladder. Here, it waits to be released. When you eat fatty foods, they signal cells in your intestines to release a hormone called cholecystokinin (CCK). Known as the bile-moving hormone, its name literally means chole (bile) cysto (sack) kinin (mover). CCK tells the gallbladder to release bile into the common bile duct. Ultimately, this bile enters the intestines just in time to mix with the foods that signaled its release. Bile acts as a detergent to break down large fat globules so they can be absorbed into the intestines.*
Gallbladder Nutrients works by supporting multiple steps in bile and gallbladder health.*
- It provides the nutrient building blocks to make bile. These include choline, taurine, and glycine.
- It contains herbs that support both healthy bile production and gallbladder function.
- It provides digestive system support via betaine HCL, ginger, and peppermint.
Some individuals have issues with their PEMT enzyme being slow. Your PEMT enzyme helps to make phosphatidylcholine from SAMe. Phosphatidylcholine is a vital ingredient needed for bile. It makes up cell membranes, helps your liver break down fats, and supports healthy brain function. If your PEMT gene is ‘dirty,’ its activity is reduced, which may diminish your ability to make phosphatidylcholine. This can result in slowed bile production and impaired fat digestion.*
Gallbladder Nutrients supports phosphatidylcholine production via methylation and by replenishing an important building block called choline. Traditional herbs are included to soothe the small intestine and support bile flow. The demulcent herbs, slippery elm and marshmallow, assist in maintaining a smooth intestinal lining. They also provide soluble fibers that can assist in the normal binding of excess cholesterol.*
Gallbladder Nutrients is a unique gallbladder supplement designed to support complete and normal fat digestion. It also helps maintain balance in your small intestinal bacteria for optimal digestive comfort.*
Take 4 capsules daily with food, or use as directed by your healthcare professional. Dose may be divided into 2 capsules twice daily with afternoon and evening meals.
Gallbladder Nutrients is intended for those seeking to naturally support healthy gallbladder function and bile production.*
Signs of a low-functioning gallbladder can include, but are not limited to:*
- Belching, diarrhea, or indigestion after eating high-fat foods
- Feeling full after a small meal
- Right-sided heaviness at the base of your rib cage
- Right shoulder tightness
- Right, mid-back (scapula) tightness or pain
- White or gray-colored stools
- Yellowish coating on your tongue
Always talk to your healthcare professional before consuming Gallbladder Nutrients, especially if you have undergone gallbladder removal.
Dr. Ben Lynch states that Gallbladder Nutrients may benefit those who have had their gallbladder removed. This is because your biliary ducts, liver, and bile must all be supported for digesting fats, toxin removal, thyroid hormone conversion, and microbial balance.*
