Support the absorption of carbohydrates and proteins B. accept chyme from the stomach and complete digestion C. Absorbs B12,bile salts, fluids and electrolytes and secretes enzyemes that further break down carbohydrates and proteins 14. Slow the passage of food along the intestines and increase surface for absorption 15. A. Absorbs B12,bile salts, fluids and electrolytes and secretes enzyemes that further break down carbohydrates and proteins B. Creates a space for liquids to empty into C. Move waste up and out of the body D. Absorbs water from stool E. Absorbs water from stool and stores food that will be emptied into the rectumlts F. Moves stool into rectum 16. Secretes pancreatic juice, insulin, glucagon, duodenum, and somatostatin into the bloodstream.
The epiglottis stops any of the sandwich entering the windpipe by covering the windpipe hole. In the stomach the sandwich is churched and then mixed with gastric juices and the muscular walls of the stomach churn the contents into a liquid called chyme. The gastric juices contain mucus which moistens the food, they also contain the enzyme pepsin and hydrochloric acid which pepsin needs to work effectively. The pepsin breaks down proteins (the beef) to peptides and amino acids. Chyme is squirted from the stomach into the duodenum and then enters the small intestine.
Produces essential proteins and clotting factors for the blood and regulates metabolism and cholesterol. Gall Bladder – Stores bile secreted by liver. Bile is used to help dissolve fats in the small intestine. Pancreas – Functions both as an exocrine gland and an endocrine gland. Exocrine portion secretes digestive enzymes carried to the duodenum.
_____ Glucagon acts by raising blood sugar levels; insulin acts by lowering blood sugar levels. 46. _____ Secretin is released by the small intestine due to the presence of acid and leads to bicarbonate release from the gall bladder. 47. _____ CCK is released by the stomach due to the presence of fats and leads to bile release from the pancreas.
The tongue and teeth move the food around, mixing it with the saliva, with all 32 teeth tearing and crushing it to break it down further into a softer composition called a bolus. During the swallowing process, the epiglottis blocks the air passage to prevent food from going into the lungs. Once swallowed, the esophagus movies it by way of peristalsis, or squeezing and relaxing of the muscles, down into the stomach. The stomach acts as a holding tank for the food while it mixes further with gastric juices such as enzymes and acids from its lining, to break down the bolus into a thick creamy substance called chyme. After turning into chyme, it is sufficiently processed enough to release into the small intestine.
The digestive system is essentially a long, twisting tube that runs from the mouth to the anus, plus a few other organs (like the liver and pancreas) that produce or store digestive chemicals. What Is the Function of the Digestive System? The primary function of the digestive system is to break down the food we eat into smaller parts so the body can use them to build and nourish cells and provide energy. Structure of Human Digestive System * Mouth The mouth is the beginning of the digestive tract; and, in fact, digestion starts here when taking the first bite of food. Chewing breaks the food into pieces that are more easily digested, while saliva mixes with food to begin the process of breaking it down into a form your body can absorb and use.
N UTRITION IN HUMANS Various organs of the digestive system are : Mouth Esophagus (food pipe ) Stomach Small intestine Large intestine Glands associated are : salivary glands Pancreas Liver. PROCESS OF DIGESTION - 1 ) STAGE INGESTION - food is taken into the mouth . 2 ) STAGE DIGESTION - digestion of the food begins in the mouth. * mouth cavity ( bucal cavity ) contains teeth + tongue + salivary glands . * teeth help in physical digestion by cutting the food into small pieces , chewing it and grinding it .
d. Zach’s G.I. tract needs the substance to assist in the breakdown of food and for absorption. Epithelial cells extend into the lamina where they form secretory folds called gastric glands. Several of these glands open into the gastric pits and secretions from these glands flow into the pits. E. If Zach’s only normal digestive enzymes from his mouth, what
Discuss the importance of teeth in human nutrition Teeth perform mechanical digestion thus increasing the surface area of food for salivary amylase to work and for the enzymes of the stomach and small intestine to work more efficiently 2. Describe how food passes through the esophagus Food is pushed down the esophagus to the stomach through the process of peristalsis. Wave-like contractions alternate between contraction and relaxation to push the food through the entire digestive tract from the esophagus through the stomach, small intestine and large intestine. 3. Why would the enzymes in your mouth not work in your stomach and the enzymes in your stomach not work in your mouth?
SCI/241 THE SCIENCE OF NUTRITION January13,2012 Human Digestion How the does the digestive system works to absorbs nutrients? Digestion starts with the smell of food, it activates the salivary glands. The gland secret saliva that moistens food, it also contains a digestive enzyme called amylase that breaks down some carbohydrates before it leaves the mouth. Then the food is swallowed and goes into the lumen through the esophagus. The esophagus muscles contractions called peristalsis forces the food through the sphincter valve and into the stomach.
