The functions of the colon are: absorb water, electrolytes, package/compact feces, absorbe vitamins produce by the colonic bacteria (Vit K)
This hormone causes the gall bladder to contract and release bile CCK (cholecystokinin)
This condition is caused by an incompetent lower esophageal sphincter that causes the reflux of stomach acid GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
This enzyme helps digest proteins peptidase
This enzyme helps digest fats lipase

This phincter controls how fast food moves in the small intestin from the stomach pyloric sphincter
Parietal cells in the stomach produce: HCL (digests connective tissue)
Cheif cells in the stomch produce: pepsinogen (digests proteins)
Mucous cells in the stomch produce: alkaline mucu (protects the inner lining of the stomach)
The 3 phases of gastric juice production is: cephalic phase, gastric phase, intestinal phase
GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)is caused by: excessive stomach acid production, and or incompetent (dysfunctional lower esophageal sphincter) that may be triggered by certain foods
