The gallbladder is a small sac just below the liver. It stores, concentrates, and secretes bile that is essential in digesting fatty foods. Bile also helps absorb fat-soluble vitamins like vitamins A, D, E, and K through the intestinal wall going to the bloodstream, where it can be distributed to the different parts of the body.
Gallstones develop when the bile becomes overly concentrated, with cholesterol forming crystals that become hard stones in the gallbladder. Healthy bile and a healthy bile flow are essential in the prevention of gallstone formation. A diet high in fat, cholesterol, refined carbohydrates, saturated fats present in processed, fried, and fatty red meat should be avoided; so should a diet low in fiber. In order to promote healthy bile and bile flow, a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean meats, low-fat dairy products, and whole grain foods should be part of a well-balanced diet. These recipes help you to have a healthy gallbladder, so get started and give them a try.
