00:11 Oops! Excuse me!
00:13 Oh, hello friends!
00:15 Have you ever wondered where does the food go, once it enters your body?
00:21 Well, worry no more, cause I’ll tell you all about the human digestive system!
00:28 Oops! Haha! Come on, what are you waiting for?
00:33 Zoom in!
00:35 Digestion is a simple process.
00:38 Where large insoluble food particles are broken down..
00:42 ..into smaller water-soluble molecules.
00:45 So that, they can be absorbed by blood and give energy to different parts of our body.
00:51 The process of digestion has a few stages.
00:55 And I’ll take you through all of them. Come!
00:59 Chewing is the first stage of the digestive system.
01:02 When you chew your food, the food particles break down..
01:06 ..into little pieces that are easier to swallow.
01:10 The saliva which contains a lot of enzymes, mixes with those food particles..
01:16 ..and helps break down those food particles even more.
01:20 Once you have completely chewed your food..
01:23 ..the tongue helps to push the food particles down your throat.
01:27 This process is called swallowing.
01:30 The food travels through a long pipe called esophagus..
01:35 ..also known as the food pipe.
01:38 When the food particles, have traveled through the food pipe..
01:42 ..their next destination is the stomach.
01:45 Where those particles hang out for approximately four hours.
01:50 The stomach releases a lot of acids and enzymes..
01:54 ..which further break down the food particles.
01:56 So that these particles can be absorbed by our body.
02:02 An enzyme called Pepsin present in the stomach..
02:05 ..helps break down the proteins.
02:08 Oh, and a lot of bacteria are killed by our superhero, the stomach.
02:13 So that we don’t fall sick!
02:16 Destination next! The small intestine!
02:20 Once, the food particles reach the small intestine..
02:23 ..a lot of juices from liver and pancreas help break down those particles.
02:29 The liver secretes bile, which helps break down fats.
02:33 And the pancreas release other enzymes to help digest all kinds of food particles.
02:40 Now that the food particles are broken down..
02:44 ..the small intestine absorbs them and transfers them to our body through blood.
02:50 The particles that are not absorbed by the small intestine, reach the large intestine.
02:56 Now the large intestine absorbs water and other particles..
03:01 ..and sends the waste material out of your body!
03:05 Trivia Time!
03:07 Did you know that our large intestine produces..
03:10 ..antibodies that help us boost our immunity?
03:13 When your face becomes red due to blushing..
03:16 ..the lining of your stomach becomes red too!
03:20 So eat healthy, digest healthy and live healthy!
03:24 Tune in next time for more fun facts!
