What are cholagogues and choleretics?
🍃 A cholagogue is a substance (herb or other) that promotes the flow of bile from the gall bladder into the duodenum (the first part of the small intestine) and the liver.
🍃 A choleretic is a substance (herb or other) that stimulates the production of bile by the liver. Not the gallbladder but the liver… So if you’re having issues with your gallbladder you can still promote bile production from the liver. 👍🏻￼
We know bile is ESSENTIAL for digestion, making poop, killing bad bacteria and other pathogens that cause infection, and for clearing out cholesterol and fatty liver.
So here are 5 chologogues;
2) Yellow dock
3) Oregon grape
5) Aloe Vera
And 5 choloretics;
3) Yerba mate
4) Mulberry leaf
But honestly all off these above herbs will have both chologogue and choloretic activity. 👍🏻
