"Bile Salts" - what do we know?
As I stated last week . . . "bile salts" are a primary component of "bile" and are needed by the body to help break down fats, aid digestion, absorb important vitamins and eliminate toxins.
BUT . . . THERE'S MORE TO THIS STORY . . . SO LISTEN UP PEOPLE . . .because "BILE SALTS" NEED A SPECIAL FRIEND!!!!!!!
"Bile salts" are produced in the liver, secreted into the bile ducts and gallbladder . . . and then sent to the small intestine.
Now . . . in the small intestine . . . "bile salts" make it easier for the body to absorb and digest the fats and fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E, and K that are in the food we eat.
BUT . . . as we spoke last week . . . WHAT IF WE DON'T HAVE A "GALLBLADDER" LIKE ME???
Well . . . we need to add "bile salts" back into our diet for a more "normal life" of eating.
And if we don't have "ENOUGH" bile salts to do their job in the body correctly . . . the fat-soluble vitamins and fatty acids that come from the food we eat . . . can't be absorbed . . . so they pass into the colon (large intestine) very quickly
With the result of . . . diarrhea, trapped gas, bad-smelling gas, stomach cramps, erratic bowel movements and/or pale-colored poop.
Now . . . last week we spoke about some foods that help the body produce more "bile salts" . . . so let's continue . . . then later we'll talk about the "FRIEND" that "bile salts" need.
Next question . . . are "bile salts" the same as digestive enzymes???
Well . . . "digestive enzymes" . . . which we need due to this Western diet . . . work from the first contact with food in the mouth, all the way down to the small intestine . . .
