Gastroenterologist: for good gallbladder function, you need to eat the right fats and protein for breakfast

As therapist and gastroenterologist Olga Pomoinetskaya said, for good functioning of the gallbladder (GB), breakfast should contain the right fats and protein.

— This organ needs to be loved and preserved because it is a repository for bile, which is necessary for good digestion, absorption of fat-soluble vitamins and detoxification of the body– the doctor noted in her blog.

The gallbladder contracts in response to any food intake, and the degree of contraction depends on its composition. GB is best reduced by taking fat and protein. Therefore, it is very important that breakfast contains the right fats and protein.

Low-fat diets worsen the quality and quantity of bile, the doctor emphasized.
