Info: 50 ml Tincture in Dropper Bottle

When we consume fat, we need a good flow of bile to digest it properly. Gallbladder Support features a blend of herbs designed to not only improve how well the bile flows from it (to lubricate its passage, as it were) but also to relieve the inflammation and irritation in the gastrointestinal tract which may be associated with insufficient bile flow.

Info: 50 ml Tincture in Dropper Bottle

When we consume fat, we need a good flow of bile to digest it properly. Gallbladder Support features a blend of herbs designed to not only improve how well the bile flows from it (to lubricate its passage, as it were) but also to relieve the inflammation and irritation in the gastrointestinal tract which may be associated with insufficient bile flow.

Product Notes:

When everything is working properly, when fat-containing meals are eaten, the gallbladder releases its store of bile into the common bile duct to travel to the small intestine to help digest the fat. But sometimes it doesn't empty completely, which impedes digestion and can result in symptoms like flatulence, dyspepsia, biliary colic (discomfort or pain in the middle to right upper abdomen), and intestinal spasms, and sluggish bile may also increase the chance of developing painful gallstones. To counteract that, St. Francis Herb Farm has combined seven herbs in this liquid tincture to relieve gallbladder congestion and associated symptoms.

Naming Note: This herbal tincture was formerly called St. Francis Herb Farm Kolesist.
