Prairie Naturals - Bile-Force Fat Digestive Enzyme - 120 Capsules
Have you noticed a heavy, full feeling after eating high-fat foods? Often, this full feeling occurs when starting a high-fat (ketogenic) diet or simply eating too many fatty foods at a meal. Many people notice bloating, gas, nausea, and even pain or tightness on the right side of the abdomen, sometimes lasting longer than 24 hours. Digesting fats can also be a problem following gallbladder surgery. Bile and pancreatic enzyme production may be inadequate for anyone living without a gallbladder or for those switching to a high-fat diet. High-fat diets (around 50-70% of calories) have become popular, yet our digestive secretions from the liver and pancreases have to catch up. It often takes weeks for production to naturally increase and, sometimes, our bodies are never able to produce sufficient bile and lipase. With age, bile and pancreatic enzyme production can become chronically sluggish. Eating a diet of mostly cooked foods for decades places a metabolic burden on the body’s ability to manufacture enzymes and, over time, production decreases.
