Is bile important to our body?

    Bile has two important functions in the body. One is to facilitate the absorption of fats and fat-soluble vitamins in the small intestine. The second important function is the elimination of waste. Bile is vital to the elimination of cholesterol.

    Generally, bile is important for our bodies. Bile is created in the liver, but moves to the duodenum where it helps to break down fats. This allows the small intestine to absorb these fats as well as important fat soluble vitamins. Bile aids in digesting and synthesizing partially digested foods, essentially splitting up the good from the bad. While overall very helpful to our bodies, bile can cause problems. Because it is high in cholesterol, it may result in painful gallstones which can require the removal of the gallbladder.
