Fat digestion takes place in the small intestines. An enzyme lipase is produced by the pancreas,
and bile which is produced by the liver and stored in the gall bladder helps your body to digest
fat. During digestion, bile emulsifies or softens the fat and lipase helps break it down into tiny
pieces so it can be readily absorbed. Fat digestion disorders can occur when there is a problem
with any of these processes or in cases where people have their gallbladder removed by
surgery (cholecystectomies). Without bile the digestive process can be compromised.
Supplementation with Lipase Enzymes can take stress off the gallbladder, liver, and pancreas
and helps with the absorption of nutrients the foods you eat. Other Added benefits of Lipase
include support if gas or bloating when taking Omega 3 fish oil or when consuming a high fat
diet, like the KETO diet.
