Since my gallbladder was taken out I have acquired bad skin problems such as psoriasis and vitiligo. Is there a supplement I can take to simulate the benefit of the gallbladder?

Greetings of the day
Dear Ms

Surgical removal of gall bladder or Cholecystectomy is unrelated to occurrence of any skin condition.
The major function of gall bladder is storage and concentration of bile. In the absence of it the function is taken over by common bile duct. There is no need for boosting up of its function.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Take care
Best regards
