Meaning of Bilious
Bile or gall is a dark green to yellowish brown fluid, produced by the liver of most vertebrates, that aids the digestion of lipids in the small intestine. In humans, bile is produced continuously by the liver (liver bile), and stored and concentrated in the gallbladder (gallbladder bile). After eating, this stored bile is discharged into the duodenum. The composition of gallbladder bile is 97% water, 0.7% - See link


Bilious in Spanish is Bilis
La bilis (del latín bilis)1 (coloquial y vulgarmente conocida como hiel2 ) es una sustancia líquida amarillenta, amarronado o de color verde oliva y de sabor amargo producida por el hígado de muchos vertebrados. Interviene en los procesos de digestión funcionando como emulsionante de los ácidos grasos (es decir, las convierten en gotitas muy pequeñas que pueden ser atacadas con más facilidad por los jugos digestivos).
