* It helps the body to absorb the breakdown products of fat in the gut. Bile salts bind with lipids to form micelles. This is then absorbed through the intestinal mucosa.
* Emulsify fats and break it down into small particles.
* It kills germs present in the food.
* It has an important part in the absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins.
* Bile also carries excess cholesterol out of the body and 'dumps' it into the gastrointestinal tract where it can be passed out with other waste matter.
* This reduces the acid content of the chyme.
