After putting the 'food' into your mouth, it then has to travel through the entire gastrointestinal tract before coming out the other end. The gastrointestinal tract for the purposes of this exercise includes the oral cavity, the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and colon.
Food travels down the esophagus at a rate of approximately 1 to 2 inches per second, and the entire process takes about 5 to 6 seconds. In the stomach, food tends to hang around for a little longer and this depends on a variety of factors including the amount of food you have consumed, how much fat it contains, and also the acidity of the stomach. However, all food should have left the stomach within 2 to 4 hours.
In the small intestine, digestion continues and absorption occurs. From here on, the time to defecation will vary depending on the time it takes to adequately digest and absorb in the small intestine. This will usually take 5 to 6 hours. The "food then enters the colon for further digestion and water re-absorption before defecation. The time from it's entering the colon to defecation is about 12 to 24 hours.
Thus, the time for food to travel from one end to the other probably ranges from about 20 to 30 hours.
In the human body, protein digestion ends in the small intestine. Protein is required to repair cells and to help new cells grow.
HCL (HYDROCHLORIC ACID) is the acid that helps in human digestion.
digestion starts in your mouth it is called cephalic phase
Mechanical digestion stands for the break down of food by chewing. Mechanical digestion is the physical part of the digestion process of the human body.
The organ responsible for most of the chemical digestion in the human body is mainly the stomach.
Less Time = Less Digestion
in the mouth
Like human, the chemical digestion of food begins in the mouth of the rat.
All the living organisms require water to continue metabolic activities.If the content of water in human body decreases by 10%,the person dies.Minerals are required for the development of organs whereas salts are required to maintain osmotic levels of different constituents of human body.Salts are also required for the digestion of fats.
The mouth is the first site of digestion in the human body. In the mouth food is broken down mechanically by the jaw and chemically by saliva.
The food we eat contain starch,on digestion in mouth it is coverted into sugar.in body it gives co2,o2 with required energy.Hence digestion is an exothermic reaction.
Human waste is what is leftover after digestion. It consists of urine and feces.
the most digestion takes place in stomach or small intestine
Meal digestion time is different for people depending on their age and gender. On average, it takes a human 53 hours to digest a meal fully.
just search in google....ok! abormal and very abnormal digestion <johan>
to chew and grind up food for digestion
its is called digestion
