Bile: a surfactant and digestive product filtered and removed by the liver from blood.  Bile is stored in the gallbladder.


Bile gets its name from the ‘biliary’ ducts of the liver that filter waste from blood. Sea sickness is the effect of the liver dumping bile and the body reabsorbing it, hence, the ‘green’ color and nausea that accompanies sea sickness.

A bilious personality is a bitter, difficult, hateful personality.  The hangover after drinking too much alcohol is the manifestation of an overloaded, inflamed liver.

Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes) is the effect of a poorly function liver and elevated bilirubin levels from backup of bilirubin in the system.

Bile is an emulsifier and is EXTREMELY important for processing of dietary fats and for BREAKING-DOWN toxic wastes as they move through the intestinal tract.

The liver makes hundreds of soft pellets each day that are stored in the gallbladder and released into the small intestine about 2 inches below the outlet of the stomach.  The bile duct is located opposite the outlet from the pancreas.

Pellets that take on the characteristics of ‘stones’ are combinations of minerals and cholesterol. When waste hardens in the bilary ducts of the liver the waste is referred to as ‘nails’ because of their shape.

Gall stones are generally the size of small pebbles but can be as large as gold balls.  Both stones and nails can be softened and purged from the liver/gallbladder using the Tissue & Liver Protocol which you can read about here.

Bile is a VERY alkaline substance as is pancreatic enzymes both of which transform highly acid stomach juices and food into alkaline state for passage down the small intestine.

Acidity and alkalinity of food during passage should NOT be confused with acidic waste lodged in the tissues and joints.  pH of body fluids vs acidity of waste STORED in the tissues are not the same thin.

Eating triggers bile release and bile release triggers bowel activity. Bile production diminishes after approximately age 35; lack of bile production accompanies onset of symptoms of premature aging and plays a part in both menopause and andropause.

Colon cancer and bowel disorders have everything to do with poor bile production. Bile is critical for longevity and good health; blood iron levels have a bile connection particularly in females. Without sufficient bile production, all aspects of health deteriorate and aging advances.

Failure to remove excess waste from the body by way of the liver/bile pathway leads to many health issues. A healthy liver and lots of bile production are absolutely critical for good health and longevity.

Young Again Club offers supplementary, activated bile [called Pro-Ox.  It is one component of the Digestive Trio, the other two being activated R/BHCl and DisorbAid #3.

ProOx is a key component of the Immune Protocol. Click hyperlink to learn more.
