The Crucial Role of Bile and Bile Acids in Digestion

bloathing, digestion support

One of the most important functions of bile acids is to break down fats, dispersing oil and grease into tiny particles. They also activate lipase, a fat-breaking enzyme that speeds up the decomposition and absorption of fats / oils in the body. Consequently, if an insufficient amount of bile acid is secreted into the duodenum, that is, if we do not assist the emptying of the bile (bladder) by sufficient fat, digestion will be imperfect, affecting not only the digestion of fats but also proteins and carbohydrates, since the digestive fluids from the pancreas are mixed to the food.

When eating fatty and oily foods, chewing triggers a reflex that causes the bile produced by the liver and stored in the gallbladder to be released into the horseshoe intestine, helping to start digesting fatty and oily foods as soon as possible.
Insufficient fat digestion due to inadequate bile supply and inadequate digestion of food results in bloating / fatigue after meals, which may subsequently cause abdominal pain. These negative effects can also be prevented by chewing food thoroughly, so it is worth avoiding a quick meals and bolting down food.

Promoting digestive supplementation with bile acids is very important in patients:

Both GALLMET bile acid capsules contain similar amounts of bile acids, but GALLMET-Mix also contains herbs that also support digestion:

  • Peppermint contribute to the healthy functioning of the intestinal tract and stomach, supporting the intestinal microflora.
  • Medicinal pemethrum helps to relax the intestinal tract and contributes to the normal functioning of the liver and bile.
  • Licorice and fennel support the healthy functioning of the digestive tract.

"I have been taking GALLMET-Mix for a week. I had constant bloating, constant burning in my stomach. After a week, my digestion has improved significantly and I don't experience heartburn. I started to take one capsule a day in the morning and I can still feel the benefits."
