This is where most gastric glands are located and where most mixing of the food occurs. Gastric contents are expelled into the proximal duocenum via the pyloric sphincter. Stomach 1- the short-tem storage of ingested food.
2- Mechanical breakdown of food by churning and mixing motions.
3- Chemical digestion of proteins by acids and enzymes.
4- Stomach acid kills bugs and germs.
5- Some absorption of substances such as alcohol. The stomach can hold up to 1.5 litles of material. The functions of the stomach include: The small intestine is composed of the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum.
It averages approximately 6m in length,
extending from the pyloric sphincter of the stomach
to the ileo-caecal valve separating the ileum from the caecum. Small Intestine Large Intestine The large intestine is horse-shoe shaped and extends around the small intestine like a frame. It consists of the appendix, caecum, ascending, transverse, descending and sigmoid colon, and the rectum. It has a length of approximately 1.5m and a width of 7.5cm. The liver is a large,
