Dr. Berg talks about the gallbladder anatomy and gallbladder function. The normal stomach acid should be at a pH of 1-3. This is essential for the stomach to release bile. Bile helps to absorb minerals and vitamins from the foods that we eat. If the acid in the stomach is low, you can get GERD or acid reflux. Low sodium diets can cause acid reflux.
Dr. Berg explains about the different vitamins and their importance, such as low Vitamin A can cause night blindness, dry skin, dry throat, acnea. Vitamin D controls the absorption of calcium which helps in bone and muscle contraction, cellular communication, improves immune system. Vitamin K2 is a calcium transporter and keeps calcium out of soft tissues. Low Vitamin K2 can cause arthrithis, strokes, cataracts, gallstones.
The lack of stomach acids can cause a deficiency of bile. So the stomach controls the release of bile. With gallbladder problems, you can have a deficiency of vitamin A, D, E and K1 and K2. This could trigger soft tissue calcium.
This is the third video which talks about the gallbladder and its relationship with vitamins and minerals absorption. To know more about the gallbladder, watch out the other videos in this series.
