How effective are these two for your gallstone condition and losing weight in order to prevent painful attacks. one is "beetroot juice" and other is "artichokes". i have read beetroot juice if taken daily will help in cleaning the gallbladder and similarly artichoke if consumed daily will help improves liver and gallbladder function. can i safely use both home remedies in my gallstone condition and do they help in anyway passing any small gallstone naturally.

thank you

Hi, Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out.

Artichoke and beetroot are thought to play an important role in preventing the development of gallstones and probably playing a role in the dissolution of the gallstones.

However, if you ask for scientific evidence in the form of clinical trials, then there’s none. Ursodeoxycholic acid is known to result in the dissolution of the gall stones and you can consult a gastroenterologist for getting a prescription of the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
