Signs of bile deficiency:
If you're experiencing any of the following, you may need to improve bile production and flow...

- Ringing sound in ears*
- Light colored stools*
- Sluggish digestion*
Its critical role in digestion and detoxification is often overlooked, but bile is something you truly can't live without! Produced by your liver, this thick fluid is sent through tiny ducts to your gallbladder where its stored until it's needed. Its primary job is to breakdown fats into particles small enough for your digestive system to process. When there's fat to digest, the gallbladder contracts, sending bile into the small intestine where its work begins.
If you're one of the millions of adults without a gallbladder, your bile flow is no longer regulated. Without controlled release of bile, your body isn't able to absorb critical fat soluble vitamins or essential fatty acids. Over time, this can lead to a number of health concerns.
The bile detox connection
Another important role that bile plays is in helping the liver flush out toxins. But, in order for this to happen, it has to be thin enough to flow efficiently through the bile ducts. The consistency of your bile is directly related to the quantity of toxins you can eliminate. Thick, congested bile can clog bile ducts and stop the detox process in its tracks. When toxins are stuck in your intestinal tract, they are reabsorbed, which can take a toll on organs and joints.
As Seen In
Assists with fat digestion.*
Helps bile to excrete chemicals detoxed by the liver, promotes increased bile acid production and supports healthy cholesterol levels in the blood and liver.*
Helps break down fats as a digestive enzyme.*
Provides important bile salts helpful for those with low bile production or without gallbladders. Bile deficiency is especially common for those over age 60.*
Collinsonia Root (stone root)
An herb used traditionally for centuries to help with gallstones and avoid constipation resulting from bile salt supplementation.*
Contains betaine which helps promote thin, free-flowing bile. Betaine is also a rich source of hydrochloric acid which is helpful for digestion and helps trigger the release of bile from the gallbladder.*
Your liver, in its innate wisdom, synthesizes and secretes about 1 ½ quarts of this miraculous substance on a daily basis and then stores it in the gallbladder. Bile is the daily key to absorbing and assimilating fat as well as serving as the toxic waste dump for excess chemicals, hormones, drugs, heavy metals and other toxins that eventually need to be eliminated by the body.
If you have a persistent roll of fat at your waistline, your liver may have stopped processing fat—due to a bile shortage—and begun storing it!
Remember that fat—not carbohydrates—is the preferred fuel source for your body’s trillions of cells. Even your cell membranes and vital organs are full of fat. That’s why your brain is over 50% fat, your liver is nearly 5 pounds of fat and your kidneys, retinas, and endocrine system are composed of fat.
Without enough bile, your body simply can’t absorb the fat-soluble vitamins like Vitamin A (the infection fighter), Vitamin E (the fertility vitamin), Vitamin K (the bone health healer) and Vitamin D (the healing hormone-like vitamin that increases immunity).
The truth is, you may be able to live without your gallbladder but you can’t be healthy without quality, free-flowing bile. This thick, greenish-yellow fluid plays a critical role in your body’s functions, including:
– Maintaining a healthy cholesterol balance
– Breaking down dietary fats into usable fatty acids
– Helping your body break down dietary cholesterol
To produce the best bile, you need six specific nutrients. These are choline, taurine, beet root, pancreatic lipase, ox bile, and collinsonia root, which are all found in Bile Builder!
