Timestamps 0:00 Is the gallbladder essential? 0:33 What does the gallbladder do? 1:25 What happens when you have the gallbladder removed 1:50 Important things to know about the gallbladder Many people don’t believe the gallbladder is essential. They say it’s an extra organ and it doesn’t do much. However, I strongly disagree with that. The gallbladder stores bile. If there is low bile to the amount of cholesterol in the liver or the gallbladder, you can develop gallstones or liver stones. Bile can help keep the cholesterol from forming stones and clogging things up. If bile gets clogged up in the liver, it can create inflammation, fibrosis, and eventually cirrhosis. Bile is a detergent. It makes the fat more absorbable into the small intestines. Bile helps break down fats and extract certain important nutrients from the fat. When a person has their gallbladder removed, bile is still made, and it still trickles through to the small intestines, but it’s going to be less concentrated and less regulated. Important things to know about the gallbladder: 1. Fat-soluble vitamins are completely dependent on bile for absorption. 2. Without enough bile, you could have more constipation. 3. Bile helps extract omega-3 fatty acids from the food you eat. 4. Vitamin D and vitamin A receptors are activated by bile. 5. Bile keeps bacteria out of the small intestines. 6. Bile is necessary for the conversion of T4 to T3. 7. Bile regulates excess cholesterol. 8. Ulcers and gastritis can both be side effects of a bile deficiency.
