It’s a generally acknowledged fact that the liver is one the most important organs found in all of the vertebrates with humans being no exception. What you may not know, however, is that besides performing a major role in the process of metabolism, it also has approximately 500 of other vitally important functions.
The following are some of the better-known:
- The liver is responsible for the production of bile, a complex fluid compound which is crucial for a successful digestion process. Stored in the gallbladder, bile is released to break down the incoming lipids (fats) into acids
- Synthesis of albumin, the amplest protein found in the blood serum
- Synthesis of cholesterol and the majority of other body lipoproteins, all playing key part in the transportation of fats through the body
- Storage, production and the release of glucose into the bloodstream when it’s necessary
- The processing of hemoglobin to store its iron content and release it in order to create new red blood cells in the bone marrow
- The breaking down of the harmful ammonia gas into urea which is later excreted via urine
- The detoxification of body by clearing the blood from drugs, alcohol, and other harmful substances
- The regulation of blood clotting factors
- An important contributor to the innate and adaptive immunity, the liver performs the clearance of harmful particles as well as the killing of specific bacterial cells
- The removal of bilirubin, a by-product from the procession of hemoglobin, which can cause yellowish skin and eyes if there’s an unwanted deposit of the substance
- All of the harmful substances that are processed by the liver are later excreted into the bile or the bloodstream. The former enters the intestines and is ultimately removed from the body through feces while the blood by-products are filtered by the kidneys and eliminated from the body with the urine
Main Functions of the Liver
The liver is responsible for:
- Regulation of chemical levels in our bloodstream
- Synthesis as well as the secretion of the brown-yellowish compound, known as the bile.
- The bile, in turn, is responsible for the breaking down and conversion of the fats for a successful further digestive process and the absorption of them.
- All of the blood transmitted through the stomach and intestines has gone through the processing in the liver. The organ ensures the conversion of this blood, by breaking down its compounds while storing, balancing and synthesizing nutrients that are necessary for a fully-functioning, healthy organism. Most of the vital bodily functions are, in one way or another, fully dependent, affected or identified with the liver.”
