    Thank you for this video!
    When the bile neutralises the acid from the stomach when all the food goes next to the duodenum what condition does it make? and since the small intestine makes all 3 types of enzymes, does that mean they all work at the same type of Ph conditions? If so, is it acidic or alkali conditions?
    Thank you!

    • Cognito 3 years ago

      Heya! The pH in the duodenum is slightly acidic still, but not very as the bile neutralises most of the stomach acid.
      Yep the enzymes from the pancreas can all work at around the same pH
      Hope that helps! πŸ™‚

    thank you, I understand this a lot better now, even though I made condensed notes from revision guides and websites, I couldn’t wrap my head around it, but this vid hopefully allows me to understand digestion more.

    Great video, but I would like to point out that most of the water is absorbed by the small intestine, rather than the large intestine.

    • Cognito 2 years ago

      Hi Ash, that’s true, thanks for that – but the primary role of the large intestine is to reabsorb water, which is why the GCSE course focuses on the idea that large intestine is for water reabsorption.

      @Cognito indeed πŸ™‚ I watched at least 20 of your videos today, and I must say that they’re very informative. Thanks for the content! I do the Cambridge IGCSE, and, though that curriculum is a little different than the videos here, I still find your videos helpful. Greetings from Egypt!

    i have one question does the pancreas produces enzymes like protease,amylase and lipase or the stomach produces these?

    • Cognito 2 years ago

      Heya, yes the pancreas does produce all of those enzymes, and then it releases them into the small intestines. The stomach only releases protease enzymes πŸ™‚
