The Eating Process

When a person eats a meal, here’s what happens to the food…      

1) It first goes to the stomach and is broken down by different gastric juices;  

2) Next, the broken down food goes into the small intestines to be broken down further so your body can absorb all the vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, and fats;  

3) The small intestines need further help in extracting the vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, and fats by the pancreas, liver, and gallbladder by each sending their type of juices, which helps to digest food and allow the body to absorb nutrients.    

4) The pancreas makes juices that help the body digest fats and protein. A juice from the liver called bile helps to absorb fats into the bloodstream. And the gallbladder serves as a warehouse for bile, storing it until the body needs it;  

5) Food can spend many hours in the small intestine or until your food becomes a very thin, watery mixture. The nutrients can pass from the intestine into the blood;  

6) These nutrients are absorb by the liver for processing and the leftover waste being that part of food your body can't use goes on to the large intestine;  

7) The liver filters out harmful substances or wastes, turning some of the waste into more bile. The liver even helps figure out how many nutrients will go to the rest of the body, and how many will stay behind in storage;  

8) After most of the nutrients are removed from the food mixture there is waste left over that your body can’t use. Before it goes, it passes through the part of the large intestine called the colon, which is where the body gets its last chance to absorb the water and some minerals into the blood. As the water leaves the waste product, what's left gets harder and harder as it keeps moving along, until it becomes a solid. The large intestine pushes this waste into the rectum, which is the very last stop of the digestive tract.
