Bile-Microbiome Connection

  • Bile increases survival rates of good bacteria in your colon while suppressing the bad bacteria
  • Pathogenic bacteria convert bile acids into toxic compound lithocholate, which interferes with your liver’s ability to convert cholesterol into bile acids, driving up cholesterol
  • Probiotics increases bile flow
  • Fiber increases bile flow, speeds up transit time and feeds healthy gut bacteria
  • Soluble fiber dissolves in water to form sticky gums or gels that absorb toxins, bile acids, cholesterol and other compounds
