Anatomy of the digestive- tract, The digestive tract is made up of organs that food and liquids travel through when they are swallowed, digested, absorbed, and leave the body as feces. These organs include the mouth, pharynx (throat), esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, and anus

Upper Gastrointestinal-TractMouth

It includes the teeth, tongue, and buccal mucous membranes containing the ends of the salivary glands that continue with the soft palate, floor of the mouth, and underside of the tongue. Mouth functions by chewing the food, constantly by the muscular action of the tongue, cheeks, and teeth through the lower jaw and upper jaw.

Pharynx

The pharynx is enclosed in the neck and functions as part of both the digestive system and the respiratory system. It protects the food from entering the trachea and lungs.

Stomach

This is where most of the digestion takes place. The stomach is a J-shaped bag-like organ that stores the food temporarily, breaks it down, mixes and churns it  digestive fluids and finally, passes it along to the small intestine

Esophagus

A muscular tube-like structure that functions by carrying food to the stomach. Once the chewed food reaches the esophagus from the mouth, the action of swallowing becomes involuntary and is controlled by the esophagus.
