THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
The start of the process - the mouth:
The digestive process begins in the mouth. Food is partly broken down bythe process of chewing and by the chemical action of salivary enzymes (these enzymes are produced by the sali-vary glands and break down starches into smaller molecules).
On the way to the stomach: the esophagus
- After being chewed and swallowed, the food enters the esophagus.The esophagus is a long tube that runs from the mouth to the stomach. It uses rhythmic, wave-like muscle move-ments (called peristalsis) to force food from the throat into the stomach. This muscle movement gives us the abil-ity to eat or drink even when we're upside-down.
In the stomach
- The stomach is a large, sack-like organ that churns the food and bathes it in a very strong acid(gastric acid). Food in the stomach that is partly digested and mixed with stomach acids is called chyme.
In the small intestine
- After being in the stomach, food enters the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine.In the duodenum, bile (produced in the liver and stored in the gall bladder), pancreatic enzymes, and other diges-tive enzymes produced by the inner wall of the small intestine help in the breakdown of food. It then enters the jejunum and then the ileum (the final part of the small intestine). Most digested molecules of food, as well as wa-ter and minerals, are absorbed through the small intestine.
In the large intestine
- After passing through the small intestine, food passes into the large intestine. In the largeintestine, some of the water and electrolytes (chemicals like sodium) are removed from the food. Many microbesin the large intestine help in the digestion process. The first part of the large intestine is called the cecum (the ap-pendix is connected to the cecum). Food then travels upward in the ascending colon. The food travels across theabdomen in the transverse colon, and goes back down the other side of the body in the descending colon.
The end of the process
- Solid waste is then stored in the rectum until it is excreted via the anus.
