Concentrated Bile

Role of Gallbladder in Digestion

  • Gallbladder removal surgery can be better understood if the role of gallbladder in digestion is better understood

An understanding of the function of gallbladder is necessary to understand why gallbladder removal surgery is the solution for presence of gallstones. Gallbladder is the place where the bile, a potent digestive juice produced by the liver is stored in a very concentrated form. But before it is stored it is imperative to understand when it is stored. Every day about 800 – 1000 ml of bile is produced by the liver. There is a duct that runs from the liver to the duodenum that transports the bile produced. But there is a branch in that duct that branches straight into the Gallbladder.
