How Does a Bad Gallbladder Affect Your Digestive Health?

Learn how gallbladder problems impair digestion

The enzymes added by the gallbladder are essential to the proper digestion of fat. If your gallbladder is malfunctioning in some way, then it's a certainty that your fat digestion is impaired.
