It's meant to 'neutralise' the stomach acids so that certain enzymes (lipase etc.) can work under the right conditions (if it's too acidic, the enzymes will denature as their bonds break).
It works in the small intestine.
bile is stored in the gall bladder and is secreted into the small intestine so enzymes such as maltase and lipase can work without denaturing
It is alkaline so neutralises the hydrochloric acid produced by the stomach and makes the conditions alkaline. The enzymes in the small intestine work best in these alkaline conditions.
Bile also emulsifies fats by breaking them down into tiny droplets. This gives a larger surface area for lipase enzymes to work on, so digestion is faster.
Bile is an alkaline substance made by the liver to neutralise stomach acid.
WHAT is the role of bile and how is it excreted into where it is supposed to go
