Bile juice contains no digestive enzymes, yet it is important for digestion. Why?

@ Pravee : Bile juice although do not contain any enzymes but is important for digestion. Bile juice contain bile salts which helps in providing alkaline medium in small intestine and hence help in activation of enzymes which can not work in acidic pH, of food coming from stomach. It also helps in emulsification of fats into micelles and activates lipases. 

Hope this helps!!
