The Digestive System helps us when it comes to breaking down foods like this pizza.
How does the food get broken down?
First, your mouth breaks down food by chewing it with the help of saliva.
The nearly broken down food travels down the esophagus, with the help of peristalsis, which moves around the food and liquid.
Now, the food is in your stomach. Your stomach mixes the food with digestive juices, and the remaining food, called chyme, travels to the small intestine.
The small intestine will now mix food with digestive juices from the liver and pancreas. Then, bile, after being stored in the gallbladder, will be released into the small intestine and will absorb fats.
