The food we eat always follows the same path from the mouth to the anus. It first passes through the digestive tract in the following order: mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and anus.
Food passes through the digestive tract by means of contractions, called peristaltic waves, of the intestinal wall. Digestion continues with bile and gastric juices secreted into the duodenum by the gallbladder, the pancreas, and of course the liver.
Nutrients pass into the blood at the small intestine level; passing through its wall and then through the wall of the blood vessels to end up in the blood.
Generally, food takes between 24 and 72 hours to journey through the digestive tract, depending on the quantity swallowed and its quality.
It is important to know that digestion begins in the mouth, with chewing that prepares the work. Once the food has been crushed, shredded, and impregnated with saliva, it forms the “food bowl” in the stomach.
Did you know?
Our digestive tract is home to over 100,000 billion micro-organisms.
This set of non-pathogenic “friendly” bacteria, parasites, etc. constitutes our microbiota or intestinal flora. It is unique to each individual, both in terms of quality and quantity.
