THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
First of all, your body must eat before it digests. When hungry, your body finds a meal or snack to munch on.
Once in your mouth, you now chew. When chewing, saliva will cover your food. This is to allow the food to slip easily through your esophagus.
First the stomach will digest the juices food within the food, and the digestive enzymes will break down the food for protein particles. Next, the digested food moves through the duodenum and onto the small intestine.
Once the chewed up food goes into the small intestine from the Duodenum, it travels through the small intestine as chyme. The small intestine bsorbs the nutrients from the chyme and leaves anything esle behinnd not needed to turn into waste. Once all nutrients are absorbed, it goes through the large intestine.
The once chewed up food travels through the large intestine and out the anus as feces or waste. Congratulations! You just learned about the whole process of the digestion system.
