  • 1. DigestiveSystemMrs. Stein
  • 2. Nutrients Supply the body with materials for energy, growth,and maintenance Carbohydrates - major energy source Simple (fruit, sugar) and complex (starch, grain) Fats (lipids) - found in cell membranes Fatty acids and glycerol Proteins play a variety of roles; growth, repair Amino acids Meat, beans, dairy Vitamins help regulate processes Minerals are inorganic compounds needed in smallamounts Calcium in bones, iron in hemoglobin

  • 4. Digestion Break down largemolecules into smallermolecules which can beused by cells Physical and chemical Alimentary Canal – oneway tube which foodpasses through the body Accessory structuresdo not carry food, but aidin digestionPharynxSalivaryGlandsStomachEsophagusMouthLarge IntestineGallbladder(behind the liver)LiverPancreas(behind stomach)RectumSmallIntestine
  • 5. Accessory Structures Liver produces bile which emulsifies fat Gallbladder stores bile Pancreas produces enzymes
  • 6. Mouth Mechanical digestion Teeth crush food Saliva moistens food andcontains salivary amylase Starch into simpler sugar Chemical digestion
  • 7. Esophagus Muscular tube connectspharynx & stomach Peristalsis Waves of muscle contractions Bolus enters the stomachthru a sphincter Acid may back up into theesophagus Heartburn, reflux
  • 8. Stomach Chemical digestion HCl kills bacteria, lowers pH to activate pepsin Proteins break down Peptic ulcer – hole in stomach wall Caused by bacteria Muscular sac lined withmucus Protection, lubrication Mechanical digestion Smooth muscles churnfood
  • 9. Small Intestine Duodenum - 1stpart of the small intestineEnzymes & fluids enter here Carbohydrates, lipids, and proteinsdigested here Nutrients absorbedPharynxSalivaryGlandsStomachEsophagusMouthLarge IntestineGallbladder(behind the liver)Liver Pancreas(behind stomach)RectumSmallIntestine
  • 10. Small Intestine Lined with finger-like projections called villiIncrease surface area for absorption Carbs and proteinsenter capillaries Fats enter thelymph vessels Water, cellulose,and indigestiblesremain
  • 11. Large Intestine Absorbs water fromundigested material Bacteria synthesizevitamin K Feces is stored in therectum, excreted by theanus
  • 12. Enzymes Stomach Pepsin – proteins  smaller peptide chains Rennin – curdles milk proteins Pancreas produces 3 enzymes which aresecreted into the duodenum Pancreatic amylase – starch  maltose Trypsin – proteins  amino acids Lipase – fats  fatty acids and glycerol
  • 13. Enzymes of the Small Intestine Enzymes break disaccharides intomonosaccharides Maltase: maltose  2 glucose molecules Lactase: lactose  glucose and galactose Sucrase: sucrose  glucose and fructose Peptidase – breaks down small polypeptidesinto amino acids
