But before we go further, what is bile? Bile  is a body fluid which is produced in and excreted by the liver to help in the digestion of food. It is stored in the gall bladder and also helps in flushing out the toxins from the body. The constituency of bile fluid is 80 – 90% water and the rest of it is bile salts, fats, mucus and inorganic salts. The quantity of bile fluid to be produced is ascertained by the need of the body and its functioning. Bile juices get produced in excess due to reasons like unhealthy food habit, irregular lifestyle, digestive issues and problems. A few remedies:

1. Healthy food habits – excess bile gets excreted when we eat more food than necessary. Therefore, avoid over eating or eating more than necessary. Avoid food consumption right before sleeping. Do not force yourself to eat more than your capacity.

2.  Fatty foods – along with quantity of foods, one must focus on the quality of the food ingested. It is a good idea to avoid fatty and sugary foods and go for healthy and nutritious food instead.
