About Bile acids

Production - Bile acids are produced from cholesterol in your liver and then flow into your gallbladder where they are stored and concentrated as much as fivefold.

Bile acids emulsify dietary fats - as your body senses the movement of fat into the small intestine, the gallbladder releases the bile to emulsify the fat, breaking it into smaller pieces, which then have more surface, area making it easier for the pancreatic enzyme lipase to absorb.

Bile is also involved in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins - A, D, E and K

Bile acids are reused - as the bile continues through the digestive tract, 90-95% is reabsorbed from the large intestine and returned to the liver, where it is reused as many as 20 times.

Fat metabolism requires a good bile flow

There are several things you can do to naturally improve bile flow:

A coffee enema is given primarily to stimulate the liver's bile production and flow (called a choleretic) - Chemicals in coffee, including caffeine, theobromine and theophylline, cause blood vessels and bile ducts to dilate. This opens the bile ducts and stimulates the liver's bile production.

Coffee Enema 

Do a liver / gallbladder cleanse - here is one that can be done overnight:

Take a magnesium supplement - nick-named the "missing mineral", magnesium is common deficient in our diet. It's contractile function is necessary for squeezing bile along the bile ducts from the liver to the gallbladder to the intestinal duodenum.
