Ox Bile by Seeking Health
Seeking Health’s Ox Bile delivers 125 mg of ox bile per capsule and derives from healthy, grass-fed German cattle that have not been given synthetic hormones or antibiotics. The capsules are made from vegetarian cellulose, but the product itself is, of course, not vegetarian. The capsules are free of the most common allergens, such as fish, eggs, milk, soy and wheat. Each capsule is standardized to 40% cholic acid, one of the bile acids. Bile acids, including cholic acid and chenodeoxycholic acid, are important components of bile.
The liver and bile
Bile is a yellow-green fluid excreted by the liver and consists of water, bile salts, cholesterol and bilirubin, among other substances. Hydroxylation and oxidation of cholesterol in the liver produces the two most important bile acids, cholic acid and chenodeoxycholic acid. Bile acid salts are formed from these bile acids, which play a role in intestinal digestion. Bile salts have the task of dissolving fats, cholesterol and fat-soluble vitamins in the juices of the small intestine. They also take care of excretion of water through the wall of the colon, which helps to better digest intestinal contents. In addition, bile salts cause fats to be emulsified, so that micelles are formed and the fats are easier to digest. When the bile wears off, many bile salts are reabsorbed through the gut-liver cycle and transported back to the liver for reuse.
Evolution of epigenetics
To this day there is debate about the extent to which we as humans are 'pre-programmed' or rather shaped by our environment. The relatively new science called epigenetics bridges these two extreme positions. It examines changes in gene expression which take place in the 'epigenome', without the DNA sequence changing. The difference between genetics and epigenetics can be thought of as the difference between writing and reading a book. Once a story is on paper, this information will be the same in all printed copies of the book. However, each individual reader has a different interpretation of the story, and experiences different thoughts or emotions. Likewise, our DNA is interpreted, as it were, and switched 'on' or 'off' by epigenomes. For example, the story of our DNA can take different twists, depending on the way in which the epigenomes influence the story. More and more researchers are convinced that epigenomes can in turn be influenced by diet and lifestyle. This is of course a very interesting field of research. The methylation processes that occur constantly in our bodies and what role they play in epigenetics, are currently particularly widely researched by epigeneticists.

The Methylation Process
The methylation process is one of the most important and most intriguing biochemical processes in our body. Currently a lot of research is being done with several studies pointing out that there is a probable link between the ability to methylate and health. The process of methylation takes place trillions of times every minute in all cells of our body and affects, among other systems, energy production, DNA regeneration, hormone production and repair work. Technically, methylation is a controlled transfer of a methyl group to primarily proteins, amino acids, enzymes and DNA. In addition, substances able to donate a methyl group are called methyl donors, including B vitamins, vitamin C, biotin, zinc, folic acid and betaine. Methyl groups facilitate the on-and-off switches of our DNA and thus play an important role in the gene expression of our DNA. This makes them one of the most researched molecules in epigenetics.
Products Seeking Health are made based on the belief that pure supplements should be formulated with care and skill. Most Seeking Health supplements are therefore free from GMOs as well as common allergens such as milk, egg there and, fish, shellfish, nuts, gluten, corn, yeast and soy. All ingredients are carefully researched and tested and suppliers must meet specific standards before ingredients can be used. In short, Seeking Health is a company with passion that strives for quality and composes its products with the greatest possible care.
About Seeking Health
After suffering from unexplained health problems himself for years, Dr. Ben Lynch became convinced that the cause of these complaints had to be sought in having 'dirty' genes. After ten years of researching, studying and treating thousands of clients around the world, he wrote the book Dirty Genes, in which he developed and refined his method of actively using insights from epigenetics to optimize health. Lynch is currently one of the most consulted experts in epigenetics. He has always been fascinated by the influence and power of our genes and he believes that through the right diet and lifestyle we can work with our genes to create higher levels of health.
