Beets for Your Gallbladder

Author: Gallbladder Help

If you are having gall bladder problems, such as gall stones, adding beets to your diet can help.

Beets help thin your bile to break down gall bladder sludge, small gall stones, and to clean out your liver, gall bladder, and bile ducts. Beets have a number of beneficial ingredients:

Fiber: The soluble fiber in beets helps "keep things moving" through the body, an excellent component for gallbladder health.

Betaine: This compound stimulates liver functioning and protects the gallbladder, liver, and bile ducts.

High quality iron: This element helps clean the body of toxins.

What kinds of beets should I eat?

Foremost, try to buy organic beets. As they are tap roots, beets easily absorb chemicals in the soil, especially in their skin. After that, any variety of beet is good for you. 

Most think of the classic red beet root, the Red Ace, but there are other varieties as well such as: Burpee's Golden (which is yellow inside), the India beet (which is less sweet than the Western beet), and the Albina Veredura (which is white inside).

How do I eat beets?

There are many ways to prepare beets.

Steamed: One of the easiest is to steam them until a knife inserts easily into the body of the beet. Once this is done, cool the beet under some cold water and pull the skin off (which should happen very easily.) You should wear gloves as your hands will get very red holding and peeling the beet.


Cut off the tap root and top if you haven't already, and slice or dice the beet into the size that works best for you. You can keep the beets for a week or so in the fridge, and eat them anyway you want: with some flaxseed oil and vinegar, with a sprinkle of salt, or any a multitude of beet recipes.

Baked: Preheat an oven to 400 degrees. Wash the beets well and place them on a sheet of aluminum foil. Drizzle them with olive oil, and sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper on them. Wrap them up tightly in the foil and bake them for an hour. When done, rub the skins off w/ some paper towels, and enjoy.

Raw/Shredded: Peel the beets if they are not organic, and feel free to keep the skin on if they are organic. Then, simply grate the beet on a shredder. Add the shredded beets to salads, sandwiches, or soups.

Marinated: Cook the beets and then marinate them in a fitting marinade.

Whatever your taste, there is surely a beet recipe that will be tasty and great for your gallbladder.
