What is the function of the Liver?
The liver, which is located at the upper right side of the abdomen aides in the removal of harmful toxins from the body. The liver breaks down many chemicals in the blood and excretes them as bile. The Liver is also responsible for processing blood and creating nutrients for our bodies.
