Don't "cleanse"!: The ingredients you mentioned have no bearing on "cleansing" your gallbladder. In fact, epsom salts may harm your kidney. The gallbladder contains concentrated bile produced in the liver, & it empties in response to dietary fats. There is no physiologic way to wash out your gallbladder, so please don't waste your time and risk your health! ...Read more
