What's the name of the digestive enzyme in gallbladder?

What's the name of the digestive enzyme in gallbladder?

Gallbladder: The liver produces bile for digestion, some of which is stored in the gallbladder. The bile acids help the intestine to be able to absorb the fatty nutrients in foods.

The salivary gland, stomach & small intestine also produce enzymes. ...Read more

In the digestive system what is the job of the teeth, small intestines, colon?

In the digestive system what is the job of the teeth, small intestines, colon?

Working together: The teeth masticate or chew the food so that the stomach can process it. Once in the stomach, the enzymes help further digest the food until it enters the intestines as chyme. Nutrients are absorbed from the small intestine until the remaining material passes down the digestive tract to the colon to be excreted. Very simple answer but more can be found online if you need a more details. ...Read more
