Ok, let me try.
Biliar salt?
Biliar pigment?
Cetonic body(or acid)?

Nope, it's not bile salt or pigment :P

I don't think it's a ketone body or acid too..

Well there a lot of molecules with that description. One is phosphatidilserine, a key membrane phospholipid present in cell membranes.
But only found in plants. No idea
