The digestive system has two main functions: to convert food into nutrients your body needs, and to rid the body of waste.
There is no excuse for not tracking and or understanding your gut health and any possible digestion conditions.
Digestion is complex so lets start with the basics.
What actually happens in each part of the digestion system?
The hollow organs that make up the GI tract are the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine—which includes the rectum—and anus.
Food enters the mouth and passes to the anus through the hollow organs of the GI tract. The liver, pancreas, and gallbladder are the solid organs of the digestive system.
Digestion begins in the mouth, when we chew and swallow, and is completed in the small intestine. Digestion involves the mixing of food, its movement through the digestive tract, and the chemical breakdown of the large molecules of food into smaller molecules.
An adult’s stomach can hold approximately 1.5 liters of material.
