It serves as an attentive gatekeeper to the heart, preventing harmful compounds from reaching the body's most important organ.

The liver plays an essential role in maintaining normal blood glucose levels. When blood glucose levels are low, the liver kicks in and breaks down glycogen to glucose and then releases it into the bloodstream. The liver also is able to convert certain amino acids, lactic acids, and other sugars, such as fructose and galactose, into glucose.
The liver also breaks down fatty acids into acetyl coenzyme A a process called beta oxidation, stores triglycerides, and converts excess acetyl coenzyme A into ketone bodies ketogenesis. In addition, the liver synthesizes lipoproteins, which transport fatty acids, triglycerides, and cholesterol to and from various body cells. The liver plays an essential role in protein metabolism, which includes important processes such as transamination, synthesizing plasma proteins, and converting toxic ammonia into urea, a much less toxic substance, which is excreted in the urine. The liver also absorbs bilirubin and secretes it into bile, which is then metabolized in the intestine by bacteria and eliminated from the body through bowel functions. The liver also serves as a storage facility for vitamins A, B12, D, E, and K, as well as copper and iron. Iron is released from the liver when it is needed throughout the body.
