The # 1 reason for using Black Seed Bitters as part of your daily diet is to prevent and
relieve auto - intoxication. Constipation and poor bowel movement can lead
to absorption of toxins into the body's bloodstream.
This absorption of toxins is a form of self - poisoning or "auto - intoxication".
The liver is well known to metabolize and excrete into bile many compounds and toxins,
thus eliminating them (usually) from the body. Examples can be found among both
endogenous molecules (steroid hormones, calcium) and exogenous
compounds (many antibiotics and metabolites of drugs).
A substantial number of these compounds are reabsorbed in the small intestine and ultimately
eliminated by the kidney.
Gallstones are concretions that form in the biliary system, usually the gallbladder.
Although rarely recognized in animals, they affect a large number of people. In the US alone,
it is estimated that about 20 million people have gallstones at any given time .
About 90% of gallstones are of this type. These stones can be almost pure cholesterol or mixtures
of cholesterol and substances such as Lucine. Stones recovered at surgery range from about
5 mm to greater than 25 mm in diameter.
The key event leading to formation and progression of cholesterol stones is precipitation of
cholesterol in bile. Unesterified cholesterol is virtually insoluble in aqueous solutions and
is kept in solution in bile largely by virtue of the detergent-like effect of bile salts.
