Digestion

Digestion is a complex process that starts in the mouth and ends in the large intestine. Enzymes in the saliva begin to break down food as it is chewed, and the process continues in the stomach and small intestine.

The final stage of digestion occurs in the large intestine, where water and electrolytes are absorbed and waste products are eliminated.

There are many different factors that can affect digestion, including what you eat, how much you eat, and your overall health.

Eating a healthy diet and maintaining a healthy weight is important for good digestion.

If you have a digestive disorder, there are many treatments available to help you manage your symptoms and keep your digestive system functioning properly.
