Did you know that 500,000 gallbladders are removed each year? When bile accumulates in the gallbladder, it forms stones. Normally, the liver creates bile to act as your body’s dish detergent or soap, reducing the surface tension on food particles. When the liver is stressed, bile becomes thick and pasty and backs up into the gallbladder.
Symptoms of gallbladder distress can be helped by reducing sugar, trans fat, and processed foods, all of which create liver distress.
