I'm fairly certain I have low bile production, as stool testing has indicated an incredible amount of undigested fat, and ox bile supplementation has helped me. But I'd really like to be able to verify and quantify this- does anyone know how you... (more)
I just bought some ox bile capsules to see if that might help my digestion (I'm anemic and have low amino acid levels, despite eating a lot of red meat). But I'm a bit spooked (and confused) after reading about bile acids being carcinogens... (more)

I read a story where a primitive hunter, after shooting a Buffalo or something, grabs out the liver (giving some to his dog) and squeezes some bile from the gallbladder on the liver like you might squeeze a lemon, eating this mix raw. But bile is... (more)
Wikipedia says "Bile salts also act as bactericides, destroying many of the microbes that may be present in the food." Perhaps evolution selected for hunters who enjoyed bile on their raw liver because it helped prevent food poisoning? Jeez, it's... (more)
