PURIFIED BILE SALTS ENHANCED WITH TAURINE
110 mg each Bile Salts
40 mg each Taurine
We make our own Bile Salts in very small capsules because the dosage needs to be randomly changed with every meal. Other supplements we have found to be too high to do that. With our brand, you can take what works for you.
The addition of taurine to the product is designed to help with the changing of hydrophobic bile acids to more hydrophilic bile acids, resulting in less toxic bile within the bile salt pool. Taurine also has virtues of its own including help with metabolic syndrome and balancing blood sugar.
There have been questions from people who were used to our old product wondering if this will work as well or if they need to take more capsules to equal the amount of bile salts. You will most likely find that you do not need to change your dosage at all since the added taurine should make this work better. So try your normal dose for a few days before deciding that you need to take more.
Possible outcomes of bile salt supplementation:
- For relief of most gallbladder symptoms including gallbladder attack.
- May help to prevent against formation of gallstones and with dissolving gallstones as well. See research study below.
- Helps to emulsify or break down fats and thereby aids in the assimilation of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K and essential fatty acids.
- Purified Bile Salts help to supplement gallbladder insufficiency and increase gallbladder function.
- Helps to resolve some forms of constipation.
- Replacement of bile salts following gallbladder removal.
- Symptom relief for gallbladder diseases including gallstones or cholelithias, cholestasis, cholecystitis and general gallbladder pain.
Ingredients: contains over 40% cholic acid within 110 mg purified ox bile per capsule, 40 mg taurine
Other Ingredients: gelatin capsule
Dosage: 1-3 capsules per meal (2 or 3 for a large meal or a meal with fats). Randomly change your dosage for best results. If you have gallstones, also take 2-3 capsules at bedtime.
