Use Bile Salts for SIBO or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth

author avatar Dr. Eric Berg 08/12/2020

Stomach growling, also known as borborygmi, is a normal digestive process that occurs when stomach acids mix with stomach contents. This can happen after eating or drinking, or when stomach acids build up due to indigestion. Stomach growling may be more pronounced with SIBO, or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. In this condition, there is an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine, which can lead to symptoms like stomach pain, bloating, and diarrhea. Treatment for SIBO often includes antibiotics and diet changes. Bile salts can also be helpful in treating SIBO. Bile salts help to break down fats and absorb nutrients from food. They also have antimicrobial properties that can help to reduce the overgrowth of bacteria in the intestine.
