How Standard Process Cholacol Provides Gallbladder Suppor
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 the collinsonia root combined with purified, concentrated bile salts work together to enhance dietary fat metabolism and encourage absorption in the intestines.
How Cholacol Keeps You Healthy
Supports healthy dietary fat metabolism and absorptionThe amount of bile available to the body is reduced in the absence of a properly functioning gallbladder. The bile salts in Cholacol 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 discomfortWhen greater amounts of fat are consumed in the absence of a properly functioning gallbladder, abdominal discomfort often ensues. The bile salts and collinsonia root contained in Cholacol can help reduce the bloating and full feeling after eating and promote healthy digestion.
Stimulates gallbladder functionCholacol encourages gallbladder contractions to release bile to aid in the breakdown of fats.
