Learn how to boost your digestion after having a bad gallbladder removed

Often after a bad gallbladder is removed, you will have more difficulty digesting and assimilating fats. (Learn more specifics about how the removal of your gallbladder leads to impaired digestion.) This can cause a wide variety of problems such as:

  • Skin disorders
  • Vision and eye problems (cataracts)
  • Fatty tumors
  • Bruising
  • Strokes
  • Atherosclerosis

To avoid these health concerns after the removal of your gallbladder, there is one step every patient should take: Use bile salt supplements regularly. There are several bile salt products available. Two I recommend are: Lipo-Complex from Progressive Labs. The other is Standard Process's Cholacol, and it is distributed only through doctors' offices. To locate a doctor who can get Cholacol for you, email Standard Process at
