GB-Plus

SKU: 1545
Supportive Function: GB-Plus is formulated to optimize the digestive process in the small intestine. Ox bile is combined with cleansing herbs that support liver/gallbladder detoxification and maintenance of the GI tract.

When is Gallbladder Support helpful? Liver support, gallbladder support, bile flow enhancement, flatulence, and digestion, varicose veins, hemorrhoids and skin health.
Clinical Applications Research: Ox Bile: Bile is needed for the proper emulsification of fat. It breaks the fat into droplets so that pancreatic enzymes can digest it. Bile salts are usually needed to prime the biliary system for proper bile production in any gallbladder problem, and ox bile salts are an excellent source. Purified bile salts act as an excellent liver detoxifier in certain toxic states. “The bile acids in bile help keep cholesterol from becoming too concentrated and forming gallstones. A bile acid given in tablet form increases the bile acid concentration within the gallbladder, helping to balance cholesterol in solution (Larson, D, M.D., Mayo Clinic Family Health book. William Morrow and Company, Inc., N.Y., 1990, p. 662).

Stone Root (root): stimulates, tones and cleanses the mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal tract. It is referred to in herbal literature as a “vascular astringent." In most patients with hemorrhoids or varicose vein problems, the patient has a congested liver. Bile salts are often combined with collinsonia for a synergistic and ameliorating effect.

Radish (root): Radish is a detoxifying herb for the lymphatics and the bowel. It is especially helpful for the ileocecal valve, allowing efficient closing and opening of the valves. It is beneficial for constipation problems. Radish root is reported to support the gallbladder and the gastrointestinal (GI) tract valves.

Red Beet (root): Beets aid in gallbladder function, lymphatic function, and digestion (Balch JF, Prescription for Nutritional Healing, p. 39). Red beet root has been utilized for treating abnormal cell cycle regulation; this property may be due to betaine, the natural red coloring of the beet (Australian International Clinical Nutrition review July 1986, Dr. Ferenczi, as cited in: Heinerman, John. Heinerman’s Encyclopedia of Fruits, Vegetables and Herbs. Parker Publishing, West Nyack, NY pp. 29-31). The powerful ability of red beetroot to present wastes to the liver when breaking up toxic assaults stresses the need to detoxify the liver and colon at the same time (ibid, p. 31).
