Caption: Gall bladder and liver, post-mortem of normal organs. The gall bladder is the pear-shaped organ at lower centre. The dark pink tissue behind it and at upper right are parts of the liver. This is the underside of the liver. The liver is the largest gland in the human body and the largest internal organ. It plays a vital role in metabolism, storing nutrients in forms such as glycogen, and helping to clean the blood of toxins and other waste products. It also produces bile, a liquid that is used to digest fats. The bile is stored in the gall bladder, and released from there into the intestines.
