JUNE, 2019

Gastrointestinal tract is a tongue twister that’s quite difficult to say quickly. Let’s make it simple, you can also call it digestive tract, GIT, gut, etc.

Now, as its simplified names imply, it is an organ system that intakes all we get, carry out the digestion process by extracting and absorbing energy and nutrients, and diverge the food waste to other organs. It also supplies water, electrolytes, and vitamins. Moreover, it acts as a junction point between food and the extractions from it in the form of generating immunity from it.

It’s basically a pipe that covers the long area from the mouth to the anus. It is divided into three parts:

  • The void area of the pipe, which is called lumen

  • A muscular coating in the middle

  • A coating of epithelial cells

The other two layers apart from the void area are responsible for the mucosal integrity of the tract.
