Washing Your Mouth Out With Soap

I got to admit that when I started writing this article, I flashed back to my childhood experience of getting my mouth washed out with soap from being a smart aleck to my mother.  Ew!  I can still remember the taste from nearly 40 years ago.  Sorry Mom!

Fats are important

The purpose of the post is to remind people about healthy fats and even more important how to absorb fats.  Dietary fats are essential to give your body energy and to support cell growth. They insulate your nerves and your brain.  They are an essential part of hormone structures.  They also help protect your organs and help keep your body warm. Fats help your body absorb some nutrients and produce important hormones, too. Your body definitely need fats. 

Lots of people arent’ absorbing fats

Unfortunately, too many people can’t absorb the fats they are eating (or supplementing).  That means they are getting the fats into their system, but their body isn’t using them.  It’s like going to the grocery story and pushing your cart around then going home without any groceries.  Your body is looking but not using fats. Why?  Because you don’t have enough “dietary dish soap.”

Symptoms

If you don’t’ have enough “dietary dish soap” aka bile salts, you may experience:

  • diarrhea
  • trapped gas
  • bad-smelling gas
  • stomach cramps
  • erratic bowel movements
  • pale-colored stools

Dietary dish soap is bile salts.  Bile breaks down or emulsifies fats so that you can absorb and use them. It’s literally like adding soap to washing dishes.  The soap breaks down the grease/fat on the plates and in the pans.  Bile salts do the same thing. It breaks down fats so that you can use the fats for insulation, protection of nervous tissue and hormone production.  Bile is also essential for absorbing fat soluble vitamins like A, D, E, F, and K.  Those vitamins are critical for optimal health. 

Where Bile is Made

Bile is made in the liver if and derived from healthy cholesterol.  If excess bile is made, it is stored in the gallbladder.  When dietary fat comes down the conveyor belt (stomach system), a hormone from the stomach stimulates the gallbladder to squeeze and release bile salts to break down fats.  If you don’t have a gallbladder, the liver needs to make bile salts immediately and release them into the conveyor belt (small intestine).  That’s why many people without a gallbladder struggle with greasy foods. It’s possible to have a normal stomach system without a gallbladder, you may just need to take some extra building blocks for bile salt production.

If you are breaking down fats correctly, the body works better.  Essential fatty acids are important for brain health and brain protection, nerve insulation, hormone production, and absorption of essential vitamins. 

What to do

If you suspect you may have a dietary dish soap deficiency, I would recommend the following:

  • Digestive enzyme (make sure it has enzymes for fats, carbs and proteins)
  • Prebiotics – this feeds the healthy bacteria in your stomach
  • Probiotics – this is healthy bacteria
  • Bile salts -this helps your liver/gallbladder to be healthy.  This is vital to take if your GB has been removed.
