Bile is a liquid produced by the liver.
Bile aids digestion and absorption of fats and fat-soluble vitamins in the small intestine.
It carries bilirubin from the liver to the intestines for excretion.
Normal and healthy bile ducts – inside and outside the liver – allow bile to flow from the liver to the gallbladder for storage, before it is excreted into the intestine to carry out its functions.
In short, bile plays an important role in digestion and absorption.
To ensure that the bile functions well, we have to make sure that the liver is in good health.
