What is bile


On the right underside of the liver is the gall bladder. It is a small bag that contains a yellowish fluid called bile. Bile is a solution of cholesterol, bile salts and pigments. The liver makes up to a full quart of bile every day. Some of this stays in the lever and some in the gall bladder – that is until you have a meal. Then bile flows from the gall bladder and liver to a main tube, called the common bile duct, which empties into the small intestine. Bile is a waste product from the liver, but it also help with digestion. The mineral salts in it break up, or emulsify, fatty foods in the intestine by turning the fats into ting droplets.
