NXGEN Gall Bladder with Ox bile is 100% pure, particularly helpful for those who:
· Have had their gallbladder removed
· Have a poor functioning/ sluggish gall bladder
· Cannot digest fats properly
· Have bloating after a meal
· Experience constipation
· Get reflux or heartburn after eating
· Has gall stones or a history of gall stones
· Experiences indigestion after a fatty meal
· Are deficient in fat soluble vitamins or essential fatty acids
If the fat-soluble vitamins and fatty acids that you eat cannot be absorbed, they pass into the colon where they can cause complications. If a bile salt deficiency is left untreated, it can increase your risk of forming kidney stones and gallstones. Further there are two conditions that primarily result in bile salt malabsorption: Crohn's and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. If you have had your gallbladder removed you are no longer producing bile salts which help to eliminate cholesterol and toxic compounds and play a role in cholesterol regulation. If you still have your gallbladder, bile salts help to promote gallbladder and liver function by reducing inflammation of the bile ducts and help normalise blood flow. They also help relieve gas and bloating that can be caused by gallbladder problems. If you have a bile salt insufficiency, taking a supplement of bile salts may also help to improve cystic fibrosis of the liver as well as fatty liver disease and cirrhosis*.
Bile salts also help digest and dissolve gallstones which are composed mostly of cholesterol and particles. Bile salts also help to prevent the formation of gallstones by breaking down fats before crystallisation. Bile salts also are crucial to our health because they make it easier for our bodies to absorb and digest fat soluble nutrients like Vitamin A, E, D, K, even minerals like magnesium, iron and calcium. If we do not have enough bile salts in our body, we can develop nutrient deficiencies because they are simply not being properly absorbed. Bile salts also affect gut bacteria, they help control blood sugar and they also trigger the release of glutathione and eliminate bilirubin. If you are deficient in bile salts, you obviously create vitamin deficiencies and also symptoms of heartburn, bloating, abdominal tightness, digestive issues, gallstones, jaundice, hormone imbalances, low cholesterol and liver damage. Bile salts deficiencies are not just created by the removal of the gallbladder, but can also be caused by gene mutation, improper bile flow or pancreatic insufficiency. So, the clear solution would be to restore the bile salts through supplementation. Bile salts, in particular, eliminate bilirubin from the body which is very important.
Pasture Raised Gall Bladder and Ox Bile is Australian sourced from the highest quality and purity obtainable, free from all common allergens, preservatives, diluents or artificial colours or flavours. It is from bovine and freeze-dried (lyophilized) to maintain its biological activity. Each capsule contains 250mg Gall Bladder & 250mg of bile (bovine).
Dr. Royal Lee, and other early nutritional pioneers, believed the degenerative processes of a specific organ/gland could be reversed by ingesting the corresponding raw materials specific to that organ/gland... that gallbladder glandular tissue and bile salts provided specific building blocks to nourish, support and remodel one's own gallbladder.
The liver manufactures bile and sends it through the hepatic duct to the gallbladder, where it is stored and concentrated. The gallbladder holds bile in reserve for those times when we consume greater amounts of fat and need additional bile for efficient digestion. As fats travel through the gastrointestinal tract, the gallbladder secretes bile into the common bile duct that empties into the first portion of the small intestine, where it performs the first stage of fat digestion. The bile breaks the fat molecules into smaller particles so as they travel through the small intestine they can undergo further digestion and finally become fully absorbed. The bile salts contained in bile help emulsify fats by virtue of their low surface tension. In the absence of a fully functioning gallbladder, the liver continues to produce bile, but the body can no longer draw upon its “bile reserve.” The beneficial properties of purified, concentrated bile salts work together to enhance dietary fat metabolism and encourage absorption in the intestines.*
How Gall Bladder with Ox Bile Powder Extract Works
Gall Bladder and Ox Bile Powder Extract contains conjugated bile acids including Cholic Acid, Deoxycholic Acid, Taurocholic and Glycocholic Acids, and these active ingredients could help digest the fats that you eat and assists in the absorption of essential fat-soluble vitamins, including vitamins, A, D, E, and K. Once your body runs low in bile acids, you make yourself susceptible to gallstones as fats are not digested well. You may also suffer from high cholesterol and constipation. The digestive process is central to maintaining overall health and wellness. Proper breakdown of nutrients from food is the first step toward maintaining adequate nutritional status, normal absorption of vitamins and minerals, healthy bones, muscles and other tissues, and normal energy metabolism.
Bile is an important component of our digestive process. It is produced in the liver using cholesterol as the starting material, and then stored in the gall bladder, if the gall bladder has not been surgically removed. Through a series of enzymatic reactions in the liver, bile acids such as cholic acid and chenodeoxycholic acid are produced and conjugated with either glycine or taurine to form bile salts. These bile production processes are constantly taking place in the liver. The gall bladder squeezes out small amounts of bile when it is time to digest food and fats, which acts as a detergent to make the fat in food more soluble and therefore easier to digest. Bile salts are also anti-bacterial, capable of killing such organisms as Helicobacter pylori, the microbe associated with peptic ulcer.
There are case histories where adding bile salts supplements has a number of benefits. It aids to improve vitamin E absorption in a patient with cystic fibrosis, a disease in which absorption of fat-soluble vitamins is characteristically very poor. In another case, fat malabsorption resulting from Crohn's disease was successfully treated with bile salts without inducing diarrhoea. With proper dosing, bile salt therapy can be part of the treatment of certain conditions and improve digestion and absorption of nutrients. Ox Bile contains cholic acid and major components of bile, a fluid produced in the liver that is largely responsible for proper digestion of lipids (fats) in the small intestine. As a part of the normal digestive process, healthy bile production is also important for maintaining overall health, nutritional status and normal energy metabolism.*
Bile made in the liver is then transported and stored in the gall bladder, and is released into the small intestine after eating to digest fats. The bile acids form micelles by surrounding very small droplets of fat. This action is important because it enables lipase produced by the pancreas to effectively digest the fats further along in the digestive process. Healthy bile production is vital for normal digestion of fats and oils from the diet.*
Supports healthy dietary fat metabolism and absorption
The amount of bile available to the body is reduced in the absence of a properly functioning gallbladder. The bile salts in contribute to the further breakdown of fats in the intestines and provide a concentrated source of bile salts as needed.†
Reduces the severity of gastric discomfort
When greater amounts of fat are consumed in the absence of a properly functioning gallbladder, abdominal discomfort often ensues. The bile salts can help reduce the bloating and full feeling after eating and promote healthy digestion.†
Stimulates gallbladder function
Encourages gallbladder contractions to release bile to aid in the breakdown of fats.†
