Product Overview


  • Highly Concentrated Conjugated Bile Acids
  • Supports Absorption of Fats and Fat Soluble Nutrients
  • Dietary Supplement

Bile Acid Factors consists of a mixture of highly concentrated bile acids (also called bile salts), mostly in the conjugated form, from U.S. and/or New Zealand bovine/ovine bile.

  • Bile acids are produced in the liver and then stored and concentrated in the gallbladder, from which they enter the small intestines via the bile duct.
  • The major bile components in Bile Acid Factors are glycocholate and taurocholate, which are crucial for fat digestion and absorption.
  • In the small intestine, bile acids emulsify fats to aid their absorption. Bile acid deficiency causes fat malabsorption and fatty stools (steatorrhea), indicated by diarrhea and floating stools. In addition, bile acid deficiency reduces the absorption of fat and fat-soluble nutrients.
  • Conjugated bile acids have been shown in clinical trials to improve fat absorption and nutritional status.

Suggested Use

Take 1 to 3 capsules with a meal containing fat or as directed by your qualified healthcare professional.

Fat digestion helper

Posted by Reviewer2158908 on Dec 27, 2016

I have been suffering from low bile production, and at some point was not able to digest fats at all. Tried different products before the Bile Acids. My digestion improved dramatically with this supplement. Since my intestines are very delicate I need only half a capsule (yes, separated into two capsules) with a meal containing fats. It might be wise to skip/reduce the dose when having lemon, Apple cider vinegar, Balsamic vinegar or other culinary acids incorporated in a meal, salad dressing, etc., as these together with Bile acids might cause terrible indigestion and runny stool.

This product was too strong for me. I have trouble swallowing pills so I need something mild enough that I can crush the pill or open the capsule in order to take it. This was so strong that it burned my throat. I was scared that I was going to have to go to the hospital. For people who are able to swallow the pill it may work well, it is definitely very strong.

Honestly, this product is fantastic at breaking down fats, giving more than just ox bile and lipase and making it much easier. Unfortunately it has vanillin in it and i'm sensitive to it. But i'd recommend it highly for anyone who doesn't have issues with it.

Great for my gallbladder problems!

Posted by 5079817703203235764 on Apr 07, 2016

I had a low functioning gallbladder, and all kinds of problems because of that. This really helped me feel better, helped me digest fatty foods. My gallbladder problems got out of hand and had to be removed a few weeks ago because it had gotten so swollen, and I don't need the Bile Acid Factors anymore since the problem was removed! My only problem with it is that I didn't know of this sooner ;) But be careful to not take too much. When I didn't need them anymore after the surgery, they gave me stomach pain because then I had too much bile in my intestines!

I am on my first bottle so cannot say for sure how it has helped my low functioning GB and gall stones.. but i would like to state that for me there are two unpleasant side effects that i am not too happy with.. 1) If i take 2 or more capsules a day i will suffer from terrible stomach cramps and diarrhea.. the cramps are quite long and severe.. 2) If i down a capsule without enough water.. there will be a VERY BAD burn in my upper stomach and GI area.. Hope advice helps..
