I've heard that indeed, artichokes are good for the gallbladder because they can stimulate the flow of bile and fat from the liver. I think Dr. Oz talked about it recently.

I've also read that for people who already have gallstones, artichoke, especially the supplements, could cause the stones to move into the bile duct.

But for most healthy people, artichokes are quite healthy, and are high in vitamins and antioxidants, as well as fiber, and minerals like magnesium. They may even help to reduce cholesterol.

Does water fasting hurt your gallbladder?

Water in an integral part of almost every metabolic proses in the body. The gallbladder requires water to function properly. Fasting from water can cause gallbladder stones, shrinking of the gallbladder and death. Always consult a health professional before starting a fasting period. Note: I would never recommend fasting from water unless a health professional told the person to.
