En esta lección vamos a hablar sobre la estructura y la función del estómago, y la función del estómago en la digestión.

  • Stomach

    An organ of digestion and part of the alimentary canal that is located in the upper middle/left abdomen; the stomach mechanically and chemically digests food into a soupy mix called chyme that is sent to the small intestine.

  • Pepsins

    Enzymes that are responsible for digesting proteins within the stomach.

  • Gastric Juice

    The bath of secretions in the stomach that’s used to chemically digest food; contains hydrochloric acid (HCl), pepsins and salivary lipase.

  • Chyme

    The soupy mix that digested food is converted to in the stomach.
