Oops! Excuse me! Oh, hello friends! Have you ever wondered where
does the food go, once it enters your body? Sorry! Well, worry no more, cause I’ll tell you all
about the human digestive system! Oops! Haha! Come on, what
are you waiting for? Zoom in! Digestion is a simple process. Where large insoluble food
particles are broken down.. ..into smaller water soluble molecules. So that, they can be absorbed by blood and
give energy to different parts of our body. The process of digestion has a few stages. And I’ll take you through all of them. Come! Chewing is the first stage
of the digestive system. When you chew your food, the food
particles break down.. ..into little pieces that
are easier to swallow. The saliva which contains a lot of enzymes,
mixes with those food particles.. ..and helps break down those
food particles even more. Once you have completely chewed your food.. ..the tongue helps to push the food
particles down your throat. This process is called swallowing. The food travels through a long pipe
called esophagus.. ..also known as the food pipe. When the food particles,
have travelled through the food pipe.. ..their next destination is the stomach. Where those particles hang out for
approximately four hours. The stomach releases a lot of acids
and enzymes.. ..which further break down
the food particles. So that these particles can be
absorbed by our body. An enzyme called Pepsin
present in the stomach.. ..helps break down the protiens. Oh, and a lot of bacteria are killed
by our super hero, the stomach. So that we don’t fall sick! Destination next!
The small intestine! Once, the food particles reach
the small intestine.. ..a lot of juices from liver and pancreas
help break down those particles. The liver secretes bile,
which helps break down fats. And the pancreas releases other enzymes
to help digest all kinds of food particles. Now that the food particles are
broken down.. ..the small intestine absorbs them and
transfers them to our body through blood. The particles that are not absorbed by the
small intestine, reach the large intestine. Now the large intestine absorbs water
and other particles.. ..and sends the waste material
out of your body! Trivia Time! Did you know that our large intestine
produces.. ..antibodies that helps us boost
our immunity? When your face becomes red
due to blushing.. ..the lining of your stomach
becomes red too! So eat healthy, digest healthy and
live healthy! Tune in next time for more fun facts! This is me Zooming Out!
