  • More Enzymes and Digestion
    • Salivary Glands
      • Produces amylase enzyme in the saliva
    • Stomach
      • It pummels the food with its muscular walls
      • It produces the protease enzyme, pepsin
      • It produces hydrochloric acid to kill off bacteria and to give the right pH for the protease to work
    • Liver
      • Where bile is produced and neutralises stomach acid
    • Gall baldder
      • Where bile is stored, before realised into small intestine
    • Pancrease
      • Produces protease, amylase and lipase enzymes.
        • It releases these into the small intestine
    • Small intestine
      • Produces protease, amylase and lipase enzymes
      • Digested food is absorbed out of the digestive system and into the blood
    • Large intestine
      • Where excess water is absorbed from the food
