Topic: Bile Salts

Why haven't they told us more about Bile Salts?! They are awesome! I had a resection 17 months ago and have had ups and downs with my ability to digest many foods. I stumbled upon bile salts when I was googling about pain and gall bladder removal . I ordered some and they are great. I take 4 before I eat and I can actually feel a difference take place. I would say try them if you have trouble with digestion after a resection , and research if they could be used without a resection to help release the bile. My doctor said they don't prescribe them but I could try them if I wanted. I'm glad I did!!

Re: Bile Salts

Great post, Laura.  The main reason for bile salts to be effective is related to the fact that it emulsifies lipids in the digestive tract.  Here is a great article describing the difference of bile salt and enzymes:
