The body’s digestive system consists of a series of organs that work together to break down complex biomolecules found in food. These organs begin in the mouth and end in the intestines. Each organ contains multiple layers of muscle, salivary glands, and special enzymes and proteins that help break down and process food. The game covers the different organs that comprise the digestive tract. Read More
The mouth is the main passage through which food enters the body. In addition to providing a gateway, the mouth also stores food until it is digested. As the digestive process begins, the salivary glands produce saliva, which contains enzymes that break down carbohydrates, fat, and protein in the mouth. Digestion actually begins in the mouth, not the stomach. The mouth and the stomach are connected by ducts and travel together through the esophagus, which is the first part of the small intestine. The small intestine breaks down food and converts it into smaller molecules that are absorbed by the blood. The large intestine absorbs water and waste products are expelled via the anus. The large intestine has three separate parts, each of which is three to four inches in diameter. The spleen and ileum are located in the upper part of the small intestine. If unwound, the entire digestive tract would be five feet long! The digestive system is made up of several organs. Students can make a model of the digestive system by using food, tights, and a hat. The purpose of digestion is to break down food into smaller soluble molecules. The first step in this process is the saliva, which contains an enzyme called amylase, which helps the body break down the food. In the next step, the feces pass through the anus and end up in the toilet. The digestive system consists of a series of organs that help break down food into smaller components. These organs include the esophagus, the stomach, the gallbladder, and the pancreas. All of these organs work to help digest food, so it’s important to know how your digestive system works. Once you understand how it works, you can better care for yourself and your family. It’s important to be well-educated about the human body. The best way to learn more is to explore it in a hands-on manner or practice using our science activities. The first stage of the digestive system is chewing. The goal of chewing is to break down the food into smaller pieces that can be more easily digested. The saliva is more than just water; it also contains special enzymes that aid in the breakdown of starchy foods. In addition, saliva contains enzymes that control the timing of defecation. A regular defecation helps prevent a build-up of these indigestible materials in the body. Read Less
