Eating food comes in different forms and has different methods of delivery. Each of these methods of delivery can expose different layers of the alimentary canal. Depending on the mode of delivery a certain layer of the alimentary canal will get exposed to the food that you eat.
If you have not heard, “The alimentary canal is a tube made up of fluid that connects the mouth to the stomach. In the digestive process, food is continuously digested in the gut. This digested food undergoes a process of fermentation in which microbes are the main ingredients. Once the food is thoroughly broken down by the enzymes in our guts, it reaches the colon, where it is processed by the trillions of microorganisms already living in our gut.
Most of us consume food in one of three ways: by chewing, by swallowing, or through the alimentary canal. Which side is exposed? In this blog we are going to talk about which side is exposed and what each layer of the alimentary canal is exposed to.
Scientists have a long history of studying the intestinal tract. Our first foray into this arena was in Ancient Egypt. Their early investigations were directed at determining the presence of bacteria in our mouth in order to determine how we would survive. Over time, we’ve learned how to process food, and what to look for in it.
The mouth is a complex, intricate machine that serves the human body with food and in return, the mouth is one of the largest organs in the body. And while the mouth is one of the most important organs in the body, there are a number of other important organs involved in digestion such as the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and anus.
Have you ever wondered what goes into your mouth when you eat? Do you know what it is about the digestive tract that makes it such a tough and strong spot to cut? It turns out this is because of the intestinal lining. It’s made up of layers of cells that are each attached to a digestive tract wall and can easily stretch and tear, particularly in the presence of toxins and other foreign bodies.
What is the layer of the alimentary canal that is exposed to the food we eat and ingest? The alimentary canal is a segment of the gastrointestinal tract, containing the small intestine, the mouth, and the large intestine. The intestinal tract is divided into two main sections: the duodenum, which stores carbohydrates and the jejunum, which is the portion of the tract that comes into contact with food.
In this video, we will give you an explanation on the five layers of the alimentary canal and the foods that get passed through each of these layers.
It’s a very small part of the alimentary canal. But it’s where all the nutrients we eat are absorbed, and it’s where we get the energy we need to move. It’s the part of the canal that’s the most vulnerable to damage by bacteria, viruses, and parasites. And that’s exactly why scientists are so interested in finding the “leaky” parts of the alimentary canal.
