Liver has many functions such as excretion of hormones, drugs and cholesterol, metabolizing protein, fat and carbohydrates, blood detoxification and purification (every minute your liver filters more than one litter of blood), activation of enzymes and storing vitamins, minerals and glycogen. Beside all of these, liver works with other organs in the body to process and digest food properly.
