Did You Know - About Digestion?

The purpose of your digestive system is to turn the food you eat into something useful.

Chemicals in your saliva start digestion in your mouth.

Your muscles squeeze food down your esophagus like squeezing a tube of toothpaste.

The intestines in an adult are at least 25 feet long. The intestines in a horse are 89 feet long.

About 1.7 liters (2 quarts) of saliva are produced in your mouth every day.

Indigestion can be a lack of food enzymes.

Gas is basically produced by foods that have indigestible or excess carbohydrates, which are not absorbed when they get to the colon.

Food is either cooled or warmed in your mouth to a suitable temperature.

Your stomach is a muscle that mashes food into pulp.

It takes about three hours for food to move through the intestines.

Digestive enzymes play a vital role in breaking food down so it can be absorbed by your body.
