This video shows you what your food REALLY looks like as it is digested!!!!! DON'T watch it if you are SQUEAMISH (easily upset) because I do NOT want to put you off your food!!

notes - ENZYMES, Food Digestion


  • BRAIN triggers WAVES OF MUSCULAR CONTRACTIONS
  • these squeeze food down OESAPHAGUS into STOMACH at 2" (inches) per second
  • DIGESTIVE JUICES in stomach BREAK DOWN food into absorbable ingredients
  • food is pushed out of stomach
  • enters SMALL INTESTINE + mixed with BILE (produced in LIVER) to help in digestion of fats
  • SOME is ABSORBED into the BLOODSTREAM as passes through + rest continues
  • WALLS OF INTESTINE = vast (very large) SURFACE of CELLS - ABSORB PROTEINS, SUGARS and FATS
  • these provide our body with the ENERGY we need
