This means many people will have to make lifestyle changes if they want to solve their colon problem.

Beans are very high in fiber; especially black beans.

Mouth-to tear and grind food, mechanical digestion, the mouth has 32 teeth
Salivary Gland- 3 pairs, release saliva which moistens food and helps you swallow. It also contains the enzyme amylase which breaks down starch molecules into sugar
Esophagus- swallowing pushes food into esophagus, a tubular passageway to the stomach
Stomach- squeezes, sloshes, and mixes food, adds hydrochloric acid and pepsin which changes food into a thick liquid called chyme
Small Intestine- chemical substances break down complex sugars into simple sugars into proteins into amino acids and emulsify fats.

Pancreas- adds more digestive chemicals to the chyme as the chime travels through the small intestine. Trypsin- breaks proteins into amino acids. These amino acids enter the circulatory system where they are transported to the liver for storage, but some are sent directly to cells.
Large intestine- The last step of digestion is called absorption. It occurs when nutrients pass through the wall of the small intestine and enters the circulatory system. Only waste remains in the small intestine after absorption occurs. They enter the large intestine where water is removed from the wastes and returned back into the body. This process is called reabsorption.
Rectum and Anus- After reabsorption waste collects in the last 4-6 inches of the large intestine. This part of the large intestine is called the rectum. Defecation occurs when waste products are moved through an opening called the Anus.
