What is the Gallbladder? - My Adventure to Fit

What is the Gallbladder?

The gallbladder is extremely important in relationship to extracting fat soluble vitamins and controlling bloating. If you are deficient in fat soluble vitamins, you are going to see 👇

Excess plaque buildup on the teeth, night time blindness, osteoporosis, thyroid issues, muscle cramps in calf, achy joints, psoriasis, depression, bruising on the legs, low libido, allergies, asthma and so many more issues.

Gallbladder removal surgery has become very common as people have continued battling issues with this organ. However, the same things can be done before and after gallbladder removal to support bile production to help you get the essential vitamins and nutrients out of the food you are eating.

Can removing the gallbladder make you gain weight?

YES. How? 

You need bile to help you convert your thyroid hormones t4 to t3. The conversion is done through the liver and gallbladder. If you don’t have enough bile, it’s not enough. The gallbladder holds and concentrates bile (up to 20x) so if you don’t have that concentration, you’ll have a bile deficiency. That can effect the thyroid and become hypothyroid. 

Without enough bile, your A1C and blood sugars can also go up.  Bile helps make insulin sensitive (insulin resistance is when insulin is no longer sensitive but resistant). High insulin levels can make you fat. The microbiome in your gut are highly influenced by bile. If there’s not enough bile, you’re going to have less microbes in your gut. You can gain weight from that alone. 

Bile is a lubricant so without it you can become constipated and hold more waste, thus weight gain. You’ll also feel bloated because bile helps with bloating. 

Bile helps keep the liver from becoming fatty. So if there isn’t enough bile, your risk for fatty liver goes up. Bile is extremely important if you don’t have a gallbladder. 

Here are 7 benefits of taking bile salts 👇

1. Helps prevent gallstones
2. Helps extract fat soluble vitamins (A,E,D and K and Omega 3 Fatty Acids)
3. Helps with constipation
4. Helps thyroid hormone conversion T4 to T3
5. Helps you trigger the Vitamin D receptor
6. Helps decrease pain in right side of body
7. Reduces the risk of SIBO


Who shouldn’t take bile salts:

If you have diarrhea, Hyperthyroid and Bile malabsorption (crohs, celiac, SIBO).


This is incredibly valuable information and could very well be the piece of information you needed to take the next step in your health journey to get you feeling so much better. I know for me personally, I no longer deal with pain in the right side of my body or have constipation which absolutely helps the way I feel on a daily basis. I’m deep into gallbladder research right now so I’ll be posting about it over the next couple days to provide you all as much information on this topic SIMPLIFIED.
