The liver makes bile which travels down the bile duct, to be stored in the gallbladder. After eating certain foods, especially spicy or greasy foods, the gallbladder is stimulated to empty the bile out of the gallbladder, through the cystic duct, down the bile duct into the duodenum.
Gallstones are crystalline structures formed from both normal and abnormal bile components. Bile is a pigmented, isotonic fluid that is composed of primarily water and bile acids. Bile is formed in the hepatocytes and is required for the breakdown and absorption of fats in the intestines.
