Gallbladder Symptoms | Are You Lacking Digestive Enzymes?

Does your stomach hurt a couple of hours after dinner? Do you wake up at night with stomach pain? Does the pain feel dull and achey and doesn’t feel better with anything except time?

You could be dealing with gallbladder symptoms. Gallbladder problems can stem from issues with your digestion that started before the first bite of your dinner. The most common digestive issue is a deficiency in digestive enzymes.

What are digestive enzymes?

Your digestive tract requires enzymes to break down the food you eat into tiny particles that can be absorbed into cells.

Enzymes come from two places:

  • your digestive system (primarily the stomach, small intestine and pancreas)
  • and from the uncooked food that you eat.

The body is designed to get some enzymes from foods but when your food is overly processed or cooked it lacks enzymes that aid in the digestive process.

The Gallbladder Gets Depleted

Without these vital enzymes being supplied in your diet there is a heavier workload on your gallbladder. Once the food arrives in the small intestine, the gallbladder secretes digestive juice called bile into the small intestine to continue digestion.

When you don’t get a good supply of enzymes in your food, your digestive organs, especially your gallbladder, can become depleted and sluggish. Over time, the gallbladder can become so inflamed that it causes you pain.

What can You do About It?

Don’t wait until it become so bad you are a surgical case. There are supplements that provide you with digestive enzymes to help your body recover.

There are many different enzymes formulas. It is best to work with someone who has experience to help you find the right formula for you.
