Who Needs Ox Bile 500

Do you feel sluggish after eating high-fat meals? Do you experience floating stools that are looser, urgent, or foul-smelling? Have you had your gallbladder removed? Are your gut bacteria imbalanced?

A normal functioning gallbladder releases bile to digest fat from meals. At the same time, it also assists in clearing out microbes from the upper intestinal tract.

With a low-functioning or removed gallbladder, eating high-fat meals can cause many uncomfortable symptoms:

  • Indigestion
  • Nausea
  • Bloating
  • Heaviness in your right side
  • Right shoulder pain
  • And more
Ox Bile 500 provides 500 mg of pure bile from free-range oxen (bovine). It contains 40% cholic acid to support high-strength, targeted fat digestion, and healthy gut bacteria balance.

Compared to our Ox Bile 125 mg, this product accommodates those who may need a larger serving of Ox Bile for higher-fat meals or greater bacterial balance support. Always consult your qualified healthcare professional to determine the best dosage and product for you.

Consuming Ox Bile 500 with high-fat meals may lessen your body’s demand for bile. This can lead to lower stress on your liver and gallbladder while supporting the breakdown of dietary fat. Proper fat breakdown is critical for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids from foods.

This ox bile supplement can also be taken away from food to target a healthy balance of microbes in your upper intestinal tract. An overgrowth of small intestinal bacteria (SIBO) can result in digestive issues like indigestion of nutrients, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, and diarrhea.

The pure bile found in Seeking Health’s ox bile supplements is ethically sourced from free-range oxen free from synthetic hormones and antibiotics. Get ready to comfortably and confidently enjoy high-fat meals again!

Customer Review

Clean and Effective

I had digestive issues for many years, not knowing that I wasn't making enough bile. Seeking Health's 500 mg of clean ox bile (grass fed and no antibiotics) immediately stopped the discomfort in the liver and gallbladder area after eating heavy meals and took care of my sluggish gut! ~Maggie L.

Key Ingredients In Ox Bile 500

  • Bile (from oxen): Provides bile acids to help break down dietary fats and to support small intestinal bacteria balance†

Why Ox Bile 500 Works

Do you experience indigestion after high-fat meals? This is common after gallbladder removal or when the gallbladder is not producing or secreting sufficient bile. You might also experience symptoms associated with your small intestine bacteria being imbalanced.

When you eat fats and proteins, receptors on the delicate lining of your upper intestinal tract send a hormone signal called CCK. This signal tells your gallbladder to secrete bile and digestive enzymes from your pancreas. The hormone CCK or cholecystokinin literally means bile (chole) sack (cysto) mover (kinin).

Bile released from the gallbladder travels into the intestines. Here it meets up with the dietary fat that stimulated its release. Bile salts and phospholipids are both found in bile. They assist in breaking down fats and also the absorption of fats through the intestinal wall. If inadequate bile is available, undigested fats may cause side effects.

Undigested fats and an overgrowth of bad bacteria can cause gut inflammation. In turn, this can damage the delicate upper intestinal lining. If this happens, it may diminish the secretion of CCK, leading to a negative feedback loop. When fewer fats are absorbed, there is less potential energy and a loss of valuable nutrients from the food that was eaten.

Many essential nutrients depend on bile for proper absorption into the human body. These include the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, along with CoQ10 and essential fatty acids (like those found in fish oil).

Ox Bile 500 was formulated by Dr. Ben Lynch using the highest-quality ox bile. It provides 500 mg of pure ox bile, standardized to 40% cholic acid, in each cellulose capsule.

Taken with meals, Ox Bile 500 provides:

  • Digestion support
  • Gallbladder support
  • Support for gallbladder removal
  • Targeted support for fat digestion
  • Balanced gut bacteria support
Compared to our lower serving,Ox Bile 125, this product provides a larger serving for higher-fat meals. This increased serving size may also support greater gut bacterial balance. Now you can feel confident that you are absorbing nutrients from your meals for optimal health and wellness!

    I can't bee without this!

    I had my gallbladder taken out like 10 yrs ago and started having digestive issues soon after. After trial and error with other brands of Ox Bile supplements, Ox Bile 500 was recommended to me by my Naturopath some years back and it's been a game changer for me. I can't be with out this supplement!
