CHF# 6 Gal Bile-Zyme may even be helpful in case of gall stones. The dysfunction of the biliary system revolves around the formation of gallstones. Symptoms of gallstones develop only when complications arise. Upper gastric distress, bloating and belching with an increasing intolerance for fried foods outline the early stages of this condition. Obstruction of the bile ducts distends the gall bladder which then becomes swollen and inflamed, causing acute pain. A diet high in refined carbohydrates and low in protein restricts the liver from producing adequate amounts of bile. Fat digestion is incomplete and absorption of nutrients is decreased. The diet that may help gallstones or to help them dissolve should be high in Vitamins A, Vitamin E and Lecithin to protect the cell membrane of the bladder and prevent sloughing.
The University of Maryland states that some studies, for example, have found a lower risk for gallstones in people who consume foods containing monounsaturated fats (found in olive and canola oils) or omega-3 fatty acids (found in flaxseed, and, particularly, fish oil). Fish oil may be of particular benefit in patients who have high triglyceride levels by improving the emptying actions of the gallbladder.
