Should you consume more fiber for gallstones? Here’s what you need to know.

1:03 What does bile do?
1:40 The type of fiber to consume

Today we’re going to talk about the relationship between fiber and gallstones. The more fiber you consume, the more bile you’re going to release. Over 95% of the bile in your body gets reabsorbed in the last part of the small intestine. 

As you lose more bile, there are certain sensors in your large intestine that signal back up to the liver, telling the liver there isn’t enough bile. This negative feedback loop causes the liver to make more bile. The more bile your body makes, the less concentrated the cholesterol stones become, and the greater the decreased risk of gallstones. The cause of gallstones is a lack of bile, so more production of bile may help decrease the risk of gallstones. 

Bile does many different things, such as:
• It helps you absorb fat-soluble vitamins and omega-3 fats
• It helps break down fats 
• It helps kill bacteria in the small intestine 

One important thing to note is that you always want to consume more vegetable fiber instead of grain fiber.
