The Digestive System

  • What is the digestive system?

  • A complex group of organs and glands that process the food we eat

What does it do

What does it do?

It mechanically and chemically breakdowns food into smaller molecules which can be absorbed into the blood stream

Excretes waste materials your body can’t use


Four stages of digestion

Four Stages of Digestion

Ingestion

Process of putting food or drink into your mouth


Digestion

Digestion

Mechanical:

  • Begins in the mouth with the teeth and tongue chewing food into pieces you can swallow

Chemical:

  • Salivary glands produce enzymes (amylase), which breaks down complex carbohydrates to simple ones


Digestive system

Path of Digestion

Mouth

Teeth, tongue

Salivary glands – Excrete enzymes

Swallow

Pharynx – epiglottis covers trachea when you swallow

Esophagus

Peristalsis

Stomach –churns the food and mixes with gastric juice to form chyme

Small intestine –duodenum – breaks down fat with bile from liver – enzymes from pancreas break down chyme

Pancreas

Liver


Absorption

Absorption

Small intestine:

  • occurs in the last five meters of called the jejunum and ileum

  • villi increase the rate of absorption of nutrients

Large intestine:

  • Accepts what the small intestine doesn’t absorb

  • Absorbs more water and concentrates the wastes


Elimination

Elimination

Undigested materials (feces) from the large intestine pass into the rectum and are eliminated through the anus
