Being a health conscious carnivore we know the vital role healthy organs play in our overall well-being. Our hearts, brains, and lungs are the organs we hear most about in terms of keeping healthy with cardiovascular and neurological diseases on the rise. But today I would like to focus on two often overlooked vital organs for optimal health, our gallbladder and liver.

If you had the experience of increasing your fat to the optimal 75% carnivore ratio and had an intense feeling of nausea post meal, then you have been introduced to your gallbladder. Even though many people think of the gallbladder as an optional organ and have it surgically removed, it is important and plays a vital role in our bodies.

The Gallbladder and Its Functions

The gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped organ located under your liver on the right side of your body. Its role is to store and release bile. Bile is the fluid that your liver produces to digest, you guessed it, fats.

The gallbladder is considered a part of your digestive tract; its primary role is to store and release bile to aid in the digestion of fats. Bile is produced in the liver and is made up of cholesterol, bilirubin, and bile salts.

Your gallbladder doesn’t act alone. Like all components of our bodies, it is intimately connected to other organs and needed for our bodies to function properly.

The gallbladder is connected to all the other parts of our digestive tract through a series of interconnected vessels called the biliary tract. This tract connects the liver to the gallbladder and the gallbladder to the small intestine.

The gallbladder stores bile, and sits there waiting when you are not eating (or even limiting fat).
When you begin to eat, the gallbladder signals that it is time to release bile to aid digestion. The bile travels in the biliary tract to the first part of your small intestine, which begins to mix with food to aid digestion. After you complete your meal, the gallbladder sits empty and begins to fill again, awaiting your next meal.
