Expert Answer

Liver produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion through the emulsification of fats. It converts excess glucose into glycogen for storage. It helps in detoxification i.e. clearing the blood of drugs and other poisonous substances.

 

Pancreas secretes digestive enzymes and an alkaline fluid, and secretes them into the small intestine. Digestive enzymes include trypsin, chymotrypsin, pancreatic lipase, and pancreatic amylase, which help in the digestion of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Epithelial cells in pancreatic ducts are the source of the bicarbonate and water secreted by the pancreas. Bicarbonate is a base and critical to neutralizing the acid coming into the small intestine from the stomach.
