  2. It removes bilirubin and other toxins from the blood. Bilirubin is a by-product of the break down into red blood cells.
  3. It processes most of the nutrients absorbed by the intestines during digestion and converts those nutrients into forms that can be used by the body. The liver also stores some nutrients such as vitamin A, iron and other minerals.
  4. It makes cholesterol, vitamin A, substances that help blood clot and certain proteins.
