If you ingest a large amount of fat and the liver or pancreas don’t produce or have enough bile stores to break the fat down, you can get nauseated from this undigested fat. Many people without a gallbladder doing the Keto diet have this issue because your gallbladder is your holding tank for your enzymes. Without that tank, your system just dumps them as their produced and not enough is stored for when food is consumed. This often leads to undigested foods sitting in the gut, slow digestion/ constipation, bloating, gas, pain, and a toxic colon which can lead to your colon leaking or “Leaky gut syndrome”.
To assist in easing your digestion issues; help to break down foods and cleanse the liver, we have included Licorice root, Milk Thistle, Betaine Anhydrous, Digestive Enzymes, and Papaya Fruit.
If your not familiar, the Papaya fruit contains papain, which can be used as a meat tenderizer. It also contains water, fiber and digestive enzymes to assist in relieving constipation and promote regularity. Betaine anhydrous helps in the metabolism of homocysteine, a chemical involved in the normal function of many different parts of the body, including blood, bones, eyes, heart, nerves, and the brain. Betaine anhydrous prevents the buildup of homocysteine seen in people who have problems with its metabolism from birth. Centuries ago, licorice root was used in Greece, China, and Egypt for stomach inflammation and upper respiratory problems. Licorice root also has been used as a sweetener. Today, people use licorice root as a dietary supplement for digestive problems, menopausal symptoms, cough, and bacterial and viral infections.
Milk thistle, is a natural herb that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and is commonly used to detoxify the body, especially the liver, as well as help liver diseases and gallbladder problems. Milk thistle (which has the scientific name Silybum marianum) grows mostly in California, although it can be grown in many parts of the world with a warm climate. In fact, milk thistle, or silymarin, is the most common natural supplement for liver disorders in the U.S. due to its many health benefits.
As an herb that’s considered a “hepatic, galactogogue, demulcent and cholagogue,” milk thistle benefits are thought to include being able to promote healthy digestive function by promoting enzyme formation, increasing bile production, decreasing inflammation and soothing the mucous membranes throughout the body.
