Which part of the body secretes bile? Where is bile stored? What is the function of bile?

Answer :

Bile is secreted by the liver.

It is stored in Gall bladder. Gall bladder is an accessory gland present in the digestive system which stores the secretion of the liver.


The function of Bile:


• Bile contains bile acids which help in the digestion of fats.


• The enzymes secreted by salivary gland and pancreas cannot breakdown the large globules of fats.


• Hence, bile salts break them into smaller globules so that enzyme can work on them.


• Bile is also essential for absorption of fats in the small intestine.
