Natural supplements for gallbladder function
The gallbladder plays an important role in supporting and promoting healthy digestion. Your gallbladder is located directly below the liver. These two organs work in concert to facilitate the digestion of fats.
The function of the gallbladder is to help break down fat which it does with bile, a greenish-brown fluid that is produced and secreted by the liver and then stored in the gallbladder until it’s needed. During digestion, bile from your gallbladder is secreted into the small intestine to help emulsify fats for absorption.
It’s important to have a healthy functioning gallbladder because it’s necessary for the digestion and subsequent absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins -- K, D, E, and A. These vitamins play many crucial roles in maintaining your health.
Eating a well-balanced diet containing lots of fruits and vegetables, lean meats, and fiber, keeping properly hydrated, and maintaining a healthy weight are all factors that can contribute to a healthy gallbladder. Consider adding a natural supplement to improve gallbladder function to your daily routine. Global Health Trax offers one of the best all-natural supplements for gallbladder health -- Colostrum Plus.
Vitamin C and zinc
Colostrum Plus is a powerful combination of colostrum, which is high in nutrients, antibodies, carbohydrates, and proteins plus vitamin C and zinc. Studies have shown that vitamin C may have a protective effect on the gallbladder with respect to the development of gallstones. Vitamin C may help to breakdown cholesterol, one of the components found in gallstones.
Problems with gallbladder function arise when bile remains in the gallbladder for extended periods of time. It can becomes “sludgy” from excess amounts of cholesterol and, eventually, crystal-like structures called gallstones will form and cause an irritation in your gallbladder. If they become large enough, gallstones can block one of the ducts exiting the liver or gallbladder. This can lead to a gallbladder attack which results in pain, nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite.
Factors that can contribute to an increased risk for developing gallstones include diets that are high in fats and/or cholesterol, being obese, having diabetes, or taking estrogen. Adding Colostrum Plus to your daily routine may help to maintain healthy gallbladder function, skin health, and aid in the growth and repair of tissues. Vitamin C is an antioxidant which works to block some of the damage done by free radicals as we age.
The zinc found in Colostrum Plus helps to support and maintain your immune system, influence the release of hormones, and plays an important role in nerve transmission.
