What the Liver Does

The liver is the largest glandular organ in the human body. It often weighs from 3-4 pounds. It is mainly on the right side of the body.

The liver manufactures the digestive fluid called bile. Bile is stored in the gall bladder. The liver gets blood from the stomach and intestines, and cleanses that blood by freeing it of waste matter and poisons.

Bile is sent to the small intestine to aid in digestion. (Coffee enemas are said to aid in sending bile quickly). Bile helps keep the intestine alkaline and it breaks up fats, aids in their digestion too. Bile stimulates the liver.

The liver can grow new cells. Liver cells take some of the sugar out of the blood which is then changed to glycogen. Glyogen is stored in the liver and can be 'given' out again if the blood needs sugar.

Urea is formed in the liver-this substance contains nitrogem. Urea is released from the liver and carried to the kidneys via the blood. It is then excreted in urine.
