About Beta TCP
Support for normal cholesterol to bile acid conversion and healthy bile flow. Contains digestive and antioxidant enzymes, vitamin C, taurine and organic beet concentrate.
Why you may need Beta TCP
As a direct result of the Standard American Diet (SAD), gallbladder problems are rampant in modern society. Traditionally, many practitioners have supplemented those with gallbladder issues with products containing bile salts, such as Beta Plus™. While bile salts have helped a great number of patients support normal digestive processes, they do not benefit those patients without bile insufficiency. Some people produce adequate levels of bile; however, the bile they produce is too thick and thus may result in biliary stasis. Intolerances for fried or fatty meals, gas, bloating, constipation, headaches or pain after eating that refers to the shoulder (scapula), etc. are all functional signs that biliary function may be altered.
Why your healthcare practitioner recommends Beta TCP
The gallbladder is a small, hollow organ situated off of the liver that stores and concentrates a
digestive substance called bile. When food containing fats enter the digestive tract, the gallbladder contracts
and squeezes its one and a half oz of bile into the intestine – so the fats can be digested properly. The
gallbladder is finicky; lots of things can go wrong with it. It can not store enough bile for your needs, the
bile can be so thick and stagnant that the gallbladder can not squeeze it out, or stones can form in the
gallbladder that block its use all together.
Regardless of the type of dysfunction, a lot of different types of symptoms can result. In addition to
headaches, gas, bloating, and shoulder pain, people may also experience diarrhea, constipation, indigestion,
nausea, light-colored or foul stools, or even extreme pain. Sometimes these gallbladder attacks get so
severe that the surgical removal of the organ becomes an appealing option. Unfortunately however, the
removal of the gallbladder may only alleviate immediate pain from gallstones – it can lead to long-term
consequences and side effects, particularly pain upon eating and chronic diarrhea. The gallbladder is so
problematic that every year over half-a-million people in the US get it surgically removed, but patient
surveys taken 2-24 months post-surgically show that a full 40-50% of people are still having significant
digestive problems. Furthermore, there is increasing evidence that the elimination of the gallbladder causes
the liver to constantly drip bile into the intestine, which can damage the intestinal lining and may increase
the risk of developing colon cancer.
Research has shown that certain nutrients, including a specific concentrate derived from organic beets,
taurine, and pancrelipase, can all assist with biliary stasis and support healthy gallbladder function. These
nutrients can alleviate some of the most problematic digestive symptoms in an incredibly short period of
time. Biotics Research has long taken gallbladder health very seriously, and therefore they have developed
two unique and time tested formulas to support healthy gallbladder function. Beta-TCP™ combines
the above mentioned nutrients into highly convenient and effective tablets, and is ideal for people who
retain their gallbladders. For people who have had their gallbladders removed, the product of choice would
be Beta Plus™, which contains many of the same active ingredients as Beta-TCP™ but has the added
benefit of ox-bile to improve overall digestive ability.
