Don’t listen to your doctor if they say the gallbladder “has no purpose" this is not true. The gallbladder is connected to the liver where it concentrates and stores bile, bile is used to break down fat in the small intestine, namely essential fatty acids, that can be absorbed to help oxygenate cells and give you energy. When you eat a meal containing a larger amount of fat, more bile is needed. Therefore, the gallbladder, while not as essential as the liver itself, is handy for storing extra bile for when that big fat meal comes along. Gallbladder surgery is common, and usually harmless, but it’s always a good idea to try a nutritional approach to your healthcare problem before committing to a definitive surgery. Supplements that help your gallbladder also help your liver, Lecithin found in Green Magic is very effective for emulsifying fats. Vitamins & antioxidant that improves immune system function, protects your gallbladder from harmful free radicals that can trigger gallstones & prevents bile from accumulating in your gallbladder.
