    The gallbladder is a small sac located under the liver. It stores bile produced by the liver and releases it into the small intestine when fat is present, aiding in the digestion of food.

    The small intestine receives bile from your liver. This bile is later stored within the gallbladder, which executes two different functions – making food alkaline and breaking down its fat content. The primary site of absorption for most nutrients is where bile from the gallbladder and pancreatic juice help to break down fats. The large intestine absorbs water, electrolytes, and vitamins produced by gut bacteria before eliminating solid waste such as faeces.

    The liver is a large organ that filters blood and produces bile. Bile is a fluid that helps the body digest fats. The liver also stores nutrients, makes proteins and regulates hormone levels.

    The liver is located on the upper right-hand side of the abdomen, just below the ribs. It is a thick, dark red organ that weighs about 3 pounds. The liver has two main sections:

    The right lobe is the larger of the two and makes up about 60-65% of the liver.

    The left lobe is smaller and makes up the rest of the organ.

    There are also two lobes connected by a small tissue bridge called the ligamentum venosum. The right lobe is divided into four smaller sections called segments.
