Bile Acid Factors consists of a mixture of highly-concentrated bile acids (also called bile salts), mostly in the conjugated form. Sourced from U.S. and/or New Zealand bovine bile.
- Bile acids are produced in the liver and then stored and concentrated in the gallbladder, from which they enter the small intestines via the bile duct.
- The major bile components in Bile Acid Factors are glycocholate and taurocholate, which are crucial for fat absorption.
- In the small intestine, bile acids are required to emulsify fats for absorption. Inadequate bile acids can result in loose stools and reduced absorption of fat and fat-soluble nutrients.
- Conjugated bile acids promote fat absorption and nutritional status.
