Gallbladder Formula Extra Strength

What can I do if I'm experiencing gallbladder problems while fasting?

Symptoms of gallbladder issues include:

• Gastritis

• Pain in the right shoulder area

• Pain or tightness in the area under your right ribcage

• Burping Gallbladder issues are often related to your bile (or lack thereof).

Gallstones or gallbladder sludge develops as the concentration of cholesterol in your gallbladder increases. When you fast or go on keto, your body releases triglycerides and cholesterol. This causes your cholesterol to increase in your gallbladder, leading to bile sludge. Preexisting gallbladder or liver issues, bile deficiencies, and a poor gut microbiome can cause gallstones and bile sludge. Over time, many gallbladder issues will resolve themselves while you’re fasting and doing keto. The best remedy for bile sludge while fasting is to take purified bile salts. This will help increase your bile and decrease the concentration of cholesterol and triglycerides.
