Digestive System:
Digesting Butter By:

Teeth breaks down butter then salivary glands produces and secretes saliva to lubricate.
An enzyme is a substance that produces a chemical reaction, like the breakdown of the butter during digestion.
The enzyme that is produced by the salivary glands is called amylase.
The butter and saliva are turned into bolus.
The bolus then travels down the pharynx and esophagus. Esophagus Peristaltic movement to force bolus into stomach. Stomach Uses gastric acids to turn the bolus into chyme.
Lipase Liver Processes all the blood and nutrients from the stomach.
-breaks down in order to better distribute and absorb. Filters out all toxins, poisons, drugs, and bacteria that could hurt the body.

Produces bile which helps in digestion and absorbing fats. Gallbladder Stores bile produced by liver.

When the fat in the butter need help in being digested, gallbladder contracts and squeezes out bile into the duodenum. Pancreas Two different functions of the organ: Endocrine & Exocrine.
Endocrine: stores insulin and glucagon to maintain blood sugar levels.
Exocrine: produces enzymes and pancreatic juices to assist in digesting the butter and are secreted into the duodenum of small intestine.
Enzymes include: trypsin, chymotrypsin, pancreatic lapse, and pancreatic amylase. Small Intestine The chyme will now travel to the small intestine which has walls that will grab all the sugars, minerals, vitamins, amino acids and fatty acids so that they can be delivered to your body for energy.
Amylase is an enzyme that is involved with the small intestine.
Emulsifier is another enzyme that enables the fats from the chyme to mix with water.
Lactase is an enzyme used to break down milk sugar.
Disaccharrides break down starches and sugars. Rectum Rectum acts as storage for fecal matter. Anus Feces then leaves the body through the anal canal by way of bowel movement Large Intestine The large intestine is also known as the colon.
Its job is to absorbs all the water and salts and finish digesting all the waste that was left over from the chyme.
Enzymes from the pancreas and stomach are used in the large intestine: amylase. The End
