It is a muscular bag that lies in the upper part of the abdomen.
What does it do?
Is commonly know as the gullet.
consists of a muscular tube through which food passes from the pharynx to the stomach.

No Digestion occurs in the esophagus
But Digestion of starch may occur
Digestion Starting Now....
End of Digestion
Watch What Happens....
Watch What Happens...
Widen your understanding
The first part of the small intestine located behind the transverse colon.
It is used to store food and extract the necessary nutrients.
It is the end of the Large Intestine
about eight inches long
What does it do?
Used to store food
Breaks the food down into a liquidy mixture called chyme
THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
production of biochemicals necessary for digestion.
the external opening of the rectum
Where the undigested food end up at.
The Body Atlas Pg 46 and 47
the inner lining....
not smooth like hose pipe, but folded and rigded, with a velvety texture
Within the fold
thousands of tiny, finger-shaped structures called villi
Villi (Singular: villus)
are small, finger-like projections that protrude from the epithelial lining of the intestinal wall
increases the surface area so there are more places for food to be absorbed.
Digests most of the food.
But wait we are not done yet...
to absorb water from the remaining indigestible food matter
to pass useless waste material from the body.
is about 4.9 feet (1.5 m) long
to dispose of waste products out of the body
is a glandular organ in the digestive system and endocrine system of vertebrates.
Gallbladder gross anatomy and local ducts connecting to the liver, pancreas and duodenum of the small intestine.
It actually isnt a vital organ in the body and our body can cope without it.
It is a 3 to 4 inch organ
The gallbladder is a small pear shaped sack that acts as a storage tank for bile
Stores about 50ml of bile from the liver
The pancreas is an elongated, tapered organ located across the back of the abdomen, behind the stomach.
There are 2 glands
This is What Happens in the Large Intestine,Rectum and Anus:)
The exocrine gland secretes digestive enzymes. These enzymes are secreted into a network of ducts that join the main pancreatic duct, which runs the length of the pancreas.
More About it
The endocrine gland, which consists of the islets of Langerhans, secretes hormones into the bloodstream
Helps break down
Now We Are Really Done:)
Thanks For Looking;)
DID YOU KNOW?

Helps carry away waste
Breaks down fats
Produces cholesterol and special proteins to help carry fat through the body

Our second largest organ
It weighs around 1.4 to 1.6 kg
