commencement of carb digestion o Esophagus No digestion upper esophageal sphincter opens to intake food food moves through the esophagus lower esophageal sphincter opens to allow food to enter stomach o Stomach Strongest muscle Chyme is added to the food through release from stomach walls and the food becomes a semiliquid mass digestion of protein and fat begin in the stomach pyloric sphincter opens 3 times per minute to allow chyme into small intestine 0 Small intestine most digestion almost all absorption major location for nutrients absorption a 3 segments duodenum jejunum ileum Movement of Food Through the Digestive Tract 0 What s peristalsis a Wavelike contractions of the GI tract that move food along begins in the esophagus o The function of sphincters a Circular muscle surrounding and able to open and close a bodily opening keeps ow of food in one direction Secretions in Digestive Tract o Saliva water salts mucus enzymes initiates carb digestion Gastric juicewater enzymes and hydrochloric acid 0 Pancreatic enzymesecreted by pancreas into duodenum act on all 3 macronutrients contains sodium bicarbonate to neutralize chyme o Bile produced by liver secreted by gallbladder into the duodenum helps lipid digestion 0 Absorption of nutrients in the digestive tract a Fibers are not absorbed and continue into the large intestine o Villi amp Microvilli o Villi fingerlike projections of the small intestine wall absorbative cells on the surface 0 Microvilli tiny hairlike projections on each cell of every villus that can trap nutrient particles and transport them into
