Many important metabolic nutrients are stored in the liver like Vitamins A, D, and K, iron, and glycogen. They are released into the bloodstream when needed.
Also improves the action of various endocrine hormones and synthesizes bile, which is stored in the gallbladder. The main gallbladder function is to preserve and acidify bile.
