liver and gall bladder

THE LIVER
The liver, a large body of about 3 pounds, is one of the main organs of the human body. The liver is located in the upper right abdomen and blood by the hepatic artery and portal vein. The institution play a role in digestion, processing of various nutrients, including glucose, the fuel of all body cells, and in the breakdown of toxins.

Purification and detoxification. The liver cleanses the blood of ammonia (which is converted into urea and excreted in the urine), toxins and drugs. Micro-organisms are eliminated by dead cells present in the liver Kupffer cells (white blood cells).

GALL BLADDER
is a pear-shaped hollow body which on the right side of the body, behind (more to the inside), and is located below the liver. The body is connected to the liver via the common bile duct. The gallbladder stores bile, which is separated from the main bile duct (common bile duct) to the intestine when fatty food enters the intestine.

Bile contains substances that fat into tiny particles can break down (emulsify) making it easily absorbed by the gut can be. The gallbladder is a reservoir for bile that is produced by the liver. The gall bladder has a water-absorbing force on the bile, which is thickened and thus a typical green color. The amount of bile into the intestine, which is discharged depends on the amount of digestible fats in the intestine.
