Bile Salts - Who Needs Bile?
Bile is produced by the liver and stored in the gallbladder. It is secreted into the duodenum (the 1st section of the small intestine). This is where bile breaks down fats and converts then into usable fatty acids which serves many functions one of which is the manufacturing of vitamins essential to our bodies. Bile plays many other important functions within the body:
Several factors can cause a decrease in bile production. The aging process, oral contraceptives use, prescription and non-prescription drug use, "Vital Hepatitis", and excessive alcohol consumption are a few of the more common factors. Symptoms of low bile production may include constipation, poor digestions, gas, excess acid, headaches, and gastric or acid reflux. These may also be signs of cholestasis, a condition where the excretion of bile is inhibited. Bile excretion can be inhibited when gallstones block the duct of the gall bladder. It is estimated that twenty million people in the United States have gallstones. (More information about products that help eliminate gallstones). This has been linked to a high fat, low fiber diet. Women tend to be at a higher risk for gallstones - about 2.5 times more than men. According to the Company, if you take bile slats and your body DOES NOT need additional bile it will result in Diarrhea.
