"The chyme enters the small intestine where it is mixed with enzymes and digestive fluids from the pancreas and liver. Enzymes from the pancreas break down the proteins and lipids of your turkey and cheese even more. The liver produces bile, a fluid with a lot of lipids, that helps break down fats."
Well, there you have it.
That's how food is digested in your body. In fact, it's happening right now!
"Once digestion is over in the small intestine, muscle contractions move the chyme down the intestine, in order for it to be absorbed. To help get a bigger surface area the folds of the intestine are covered by villi which absorb nutrients from the chyme. Capillaries within the villi help carry the nutrients to other parts of the body."
Jeez, it sure is one complicated process. Thanks for the info.
"Since most of the nutrients have been absorbed from the chyme, the large intestine absorbs water and any remaining nutrients and changes the waste from liquid into stool. The rectum stores stool until it gets pushed out of the body through the anus."
