Where is calcium absorbed in GI tract?
Calcium is absorbed by the jejenum, the secondary portion of the small intestine.
Essentially, food is digested and broken down with acids and enzymes that the GI tract secrets. The nutrients from this broken down food are then absorbed into the blood stream for the bodies use. The food matter that the body does not want is then expelled as feces. That is it in a nutshell. For a far greater explanation, I added a link below you can peruse.
The organ system that includes thegastrointestinal tract (GI tract) and its accessory organs. The digestive system processes food into molecules that can be absorbed and utilized by the cells of the body. Food is broken down, bit by bit, until the molecules are small enough to be absorbed and the waste products are eliminated.
Grass, which is a source of energy, is digested by the GI-tract and nutrients like protein, calcium, phosphorus and carbohydrates are absorbed into the bloodstream. These nutrients help make and repair muscles, among other important body parts of the cow. This is what makes beef, or cow muscle that has been cut away from the cow and eaten after she has been slaughtered.
Explain the process of what happens to those emulsified oils after they are absorbed into your lymphatic or circulatory systems?
Does anyone have any info on 'moviprep' i have just learned that it is made with antifreeze and is used everyday as a prep for colonoscopies anyone?
It's not actually made with anti-freeze. Anti-freeze, or ethylene glycol, is a small, lipophilic molecule that is easily absorbed in the GI tract and once it gets to the blood stream it can cause sever toxicity and ultimately lead to death. Polyethylene Glycol is a large polymer or chain of ethylene glycol that is not at all absorbed by the GI tract due to it's very large size. It is not metabolised by enzymes in…
