Now we are in the liver, the liver creates bile that helps digest the food in the stomach. Excess bile gets stored in the gallbladder.
Okay Class, Today we are going on a tour through the digestive system
The stomach breaks down food chemically using the bile created in the liver. Also, he pancreas makes enzymes that are secreted into the small intestine to break down food more.
The small intestine takes the nutrients out of the food and puts them in your blood stream.
The large intestine absorbs excess water and bacteria in the water.
Here we have the mouth. It uses saliva to break down food chemically, and teeth to break it down mechanically.
The rectum is the very end of the large intestine right before the anus.
Next is the esophagus. This organ pushes food into the stomach.
