can anyone tell me how or what process the mouth, small and large intestines and stomach. like what is there role or componets of the digestive system?
First it goes down your esphogus to your stomach. In your stomach your food is broken down into molecules the body can use. The liver produces an enzyme called bile, that helps break down a component in the food you ate. From the live the bile travels to the gallbladder, and then to the stomach. The pancreas then releases enzymes that break down starches and carbohydrates into the stomach. Once your food is broken down into molecules the body can use, it travels through the small intestine where the molecules are absorbed into the bloodstream, then the rest travels through the large intestine where water is released into the bloodstream. the rest, or the waste, enters the rectum where it is pushed into a solid form and eliminated from the body.
The bile digests fats. (bile is stored in the gallbladder) Bile goes from liver to gallbladder then to the small intestine NOT stomach.
(if you had it in your stomach it would be caused by Bile reflux disease)
Pancreas info is correct. Both bile and enzymes from the pancreas go to the small intestine.
Large intestine absorbs water. (you shouldn't say it's released into the bloodstream but how I said it)
Waste then enters the colon where both water is absorbed. then rectum and then it's eliminated.
Both bile and enzymes from the pancreas go to the small intestine.
note my quick type error: bile is from the liver then is released into the small intestine from the gallbladder bile is NOT from the pancreas.
Bile emulsifies fats so the wont clump in the intestines.
What about the mouth, what does it do?
out side of chewing I know the juice your mouth has does something but not sure what. I think it has something to do with helping it to break up the foods getting them ready for digestion?????
The toungue goes and rolls the food into balls. (bolus)
Saliva moistens food and also contains amalayse enzymes which breaks down starches.
tongue not toungue
