Biliary System

Biliary System

Gall bladder
Bile Ducts

What it Does:

The liver has many functions in the body. These include manufacturing bile which is stored in the gall bladder, breaking down food and turning it into energy to be released when needed, combating infections, storing essential vitamins, blood clotting, tissue repair plus breakdown and regulation of hormones, drugs and toxins.
The liver has two major detoxification pathways designed to convert fat-soluble chemicals into water soluble chemicals so that they may then be easily excreted from the body via bile and urine.

What Could go Wrong:

Poor detoxification
Gall stones
Alcohol abuse
Fatty liver disease
