About the liver
The liver plays a major role in the metabolic process; it breaks down complex food particles into smaller ones in such a way that the human body can use it. It produces several biologically important compounds such as proteins and bile (fat digestion and vitamin absorption). It serves as a storage organ for sugar (glucose), minerals and other substances.
It plays a very important role in the clotting of blood (we would otherwise bleed to death even after a small injury) by the production of several compounds required for the same. Most importantly, it plays a vital role in the detoxification process, and helps remove toxins and drugs from the blood.
