Bile formation and Related Diseases

Bile is a fluid that is made and released by the liver and stored in the gallbladder. Bile helps with digestion. It breaks down fats into fatty acids, which can be taken into the body by the digestive tract. Bile contains mostly cholesterol, bile acids and bilirubin. It also contains water, body salts, copper and other metals.

 

Bile or gall is a dark green to yellowish brown fluid, produced by the liver of most vertebrates, that aids the digestion of lipids in the small intestine. In humans, bile is produced continuously by the liver (liver bile), and stored and concentrated in the gallbladder. Bile acts to some extent as a surfactant, helping to emulsify the lipids in food. In the absence of bile, fats become indigestible and are instead excreted in feces, a condition called steatorrhea.
