Your “Gut” describes a series of Organs, as well as, accessory Organs; that transform the foods you ingest into the Nutrient chemicals that your body needs to Live, Grow, Maintain, and Repair itself.

To satisfy Nutritional needs, our body extracts these nutrients chemicals from the formed complex Macromolecules found in our foods.



Curious, do not share the works, where this is said? I do not mind being enlightened, and it is useful for each of us to know how our body works!


Hello to you. I went to school for all this my friend. I am a Holistic Physician. This is textbook knowledge. I can however give summaries, no problem.

Digestion actually begins when food enters the mouth; the forceful actions of your teeth break down food into more manageable pieces, this process is called mastication. This is the physical or preferably mechanical breakdown of our food.

The foods in our mouths stimulate the salivary glands to release saliva. Which consists of the digestive enzyme - Amylase that begins the chemical digestion of the more complex carbohydrates in your mouth; the saliva mixes with the food as you chew, this moistens the food and makes it easier for you to swallow. While also helps to clean teeth.

Furthermore, for the stomach which is a large muscular sack, that functions to store and mix the ingested foods eventually forming chyme. which describes the semi-liquid paste leaving the stomach and entering your small intestines at the Duodenum.

The duodenum is the first part of the small intestine (about the first 10 inches) the primary site of chemical digestion. The duodenum receives secretions from the gallbladder and the pancreas.

Now for the role of the liver and gallbladder in digestion… the liver produces bile that is then stored in the gallbladder; the gallbladder releases the bile which empties into the small intestine which plays a role in fat digestion.

Fats are not soluble in the watery environment of the small intestines so the bile acids and cholesterol within the bile now act like detergents. Surrounding the lipids, helping to clean up the fats and making it easier for the lipid enzymes to get to them and digest them prepping them for absorption into lymph circulation…

One of the functions of the lymphatic system is the absorption of fats and the fat-soluble vitamins from the digestive system. Then the transportation of these substances to the blood circulation.

Your pancreas creates the pancreatic juices with the pancreatic enzymes that go forth and break down our foods within the small intestines. The small intestine is the part of the intestines where 90% of the digestion and absorption of our food takes place.

Lipase = is an enzyme that works with bile. Bile which your liver produces, stored in the gallbladder, breaks down fat in your diet.

Protease. This enzyme breaks down proteins in your diet.

Amylase is made by your pancreas and salivary glands.

Upon absorption, the water-soluble nutrients enter the bloodstream through capillaries and travel to the liver for further processing. The fat-soluble nutrients enter the lymphatic vessels first and then travel to the liver for further processing.

Now for the role of the large intestine… not all the food that we eat can be properly broken down. The remaining undigested food residue continues to move through the GI tract eventually approaching the large intestine. The major functions of the large intestine are the absorption and reabsorption of fluids and electrolytes, microbial actions, and elimination of the solid waste

I hope this all helps.
