How can proper bile function and the breakdown of bile acids contribute to weight loss?
One of the most important functions of bile acids is the breakdown of fats and oils, dispersing them into tiny particles. They also activate lipase, a fat-breaking enzyme that speeds up the breakdown and absorption of fats / oils in the body.
Digestive problems caused by insufficient bile function can also lead to weight gain. If the body’s bile function is inadequate but a bile acid supplement is used to fill in the missing amount, then a change in lifestyle and additional physical exercise may contribute to successful weight loss.
