It’s no big secret anymore.

Gallbladder and liver conditions, specifically NAFLD (Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease), are on the rise, affecting more than 100 million people each year. And it seems to be happening earlier and earlier – I am now hearing from individuals in their 30s and 40s who have already been diagnosed. NAFLD is our fastest growing epidemic.

Unfortunately, NAFLD isn’t something that shows up in routine physicals, and you don’t have to be overweight to be affected either. In the beginning stages, liver enzymes are usually normal, so it may take years to be detected.

It appears that when it comes to NAFLD, many factors are to blame. These include insulin resistance, diabetes, high triglycerides and excess sugar consumption. When we eat sugar, our bodies release inflammatory chemicals. And when the liver is fatty or inflamed, it doesn’t work as efficiently as a healthy liver, which means it can’t process or eliminate toxins from our body very well. A compromised liver also burns less excess fat and cholesterol, leading to even more fatty deposits and weight gain.

Luckily, many of the dietary culprits can be resolved with a low sugar, higher protein diet like Fat Flush or Radical Metabolism. But the one thing diet alone can’t always remedy is a severe deficiency, a choline deficiency to be exact.

You see choline is your body’s “defatter” and helps to control the deposition of fat in your organs – especially the liver. It does it so significantly that CHOLINE DEFICIENCY CAN DIRECTLY CAUSE FATTY LIVER DISEASE.

First discovered in bile, choline is involved in tons of other life supporting processes such as liver repair, nerve conductivity, brain development, and cognition.

Trouble is, my guess is that over 90% of women over the age of forty are choline deficient. While you can obtain choline from beef and eggs and lecithin, most individuals simply do not get the recommended 500 mg per meal to outsmart a fatty liver unless they supplement with my wildly popular Bile Builder  which I also recommend for those without a gallbladder or who have a sluggish metabolism.

Bile Builder - Dietary Supplement from UNI KEY Health

In addition to choline, my Bile Builder contains the following…

Ox Bile: Ox bile plays a crucial role in breaking down dietary fats into smaller, more manageable droplets, facilitating easier digestion by pancreatic enzymes. This process can be particularly beneficial for individuals with NAFLD by easing the burden on the liver.

Beet Root: Beet root powder helps prevent fat buildup in the liver because it contains betaine. Betaine does this by controlling genes linked to NAFLD by reducing inflammation, increasing the burning of fats for energy, stopping the creation of new fats, and improving how the body handles sugar and energy in cells.

Taurine: Research shows Taurine exhibits the potential to regulate hepatic fat metabolism, reduce fatty deposition in the liver, counteract oxidative stress, and mitigate mitochondrial dysfunction. Many people are deficient, especially vegans and vegetarians because taurine is derived from organ meats and other animal tissues. Taurine also improves the lipid profile and lowers the risk of obesity – so important to prevent fatty liver in the first place.

Pancreatic Lipase: Lipase, an essential enzyme, aids in the breakdown of fats during digestion, supporting healthier fat processing for individuals with NAFLD.

Collinsonia Root (Stone Root): Stone root powder’s ability to relax bile ducts and stimulate bile production may offer benefits for NAFLD patients by promoting optimal bile flow and aiding in liver function.

So it’s time to bring your liver to the cleaners. Fatty liver is not inevitable. Armed with basic lifestyle tweaks and high choline, you don’t have to be another statistic in America’s fastest growing epidemic.
