WHAT DOES DIGESTIVE TRACT MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Human gastrointestinal tract

The human gastrointestinal tract is an organ system responsible for consuming and digesting foodstuffs, absorbing nutrients, and expelling waste. The tract is commonly defined as the stomach and intestine, and is divided into the upper and lower gastrointestinal tracts. However, by the broadest definition, the GI tract includes all structures between the mouth and the anus. On the other hand, the digestive system is a broader term that includes other structures, including the digestive organs and their accessories. The tract may also be divided into foregut, midgut, and hindgut, reflecting the embryological origin of each segment. The whole digestive tract is about nine metres long. The GI tract releases hormones to help regulate the digestive process. These hormones, including gastrin, secretin, cholecystokinin, and ghrelin, are mediated through either intracrine or autocrine mechanisms, indicating that the cells releasing these hormones are conserved structures throughout evolution.

Definition of digestive tract in the English dictionary
