The Digetsive System is the system that consists of the pharynx , salivary glands , mouth , oesophagus , stoamch , liver , gallbladder , pancreas , small intestine , large intestine and anus. The digestive system makes digestion possible. Digestion is the process of turning food into energy for your body to use.

What Do The Organs Do?Edit

  • Pharynx - The pharynx recives the food from the mouth and passes it to the oesophagus.
  • Salivary glands - The salivary glands is where saliva is proucuced. Saliva helps you chew your food and has  enzymes in to break down large food molecules into small molecules.
  • Mouth - The mouth is where food is broken down by teeth.
  • Oesophagus - The oesophagus pushes food down towards the stoamch using a series of muscle contractions called peristalsis.
  • Stoamch - The stomach uses hydrochloric acid (Stoamch acid) and enzymes to turn the food from a solid to a liquid or a paste. The acid also kills off potientially harmful bacteria.
  • Liver - The liver takes materials from the small intestines and produces chemicals needed in the body. It also produces bile that is need to turn an acidic situation in small intestines to alkaline. Bile also aids fats absorption.
  • Anus - The anus is the exit for the feces and is the last part of the digestive system.
