The liver plays a central role in all metabolic processes in the body. In fat metabolism the liver cells break down fats and produce energy. They also produce about 800 to 1,000 ml of bile per day. This yellow, brownish or olive green liquid is collected in small ducts and then passed on to the main bile duct, which carries the bile to a part of the small intestine called the duodenum. Bile is important for the breakdown and absorption of fats.

Dear student 
All the absorbed food is transported from gut to liver through portal circulation. 
It is done to remove toxic materials from food and several metabolic reactions take place in liver like gluconeogenesis. 
Several important substances are produced in liver like bile, plasma proteins, vitamins etc. 
Breakdown and metabolism of several hormones also takes place in liver.
