Each chamber has a specific function. In the human digestive system, digestion starts in the mouth. There food is physically digested by the action of our jaws and teeth, which break it down into smaller pieces, increasing the surface area for the digestive enzymes to work on. While being chewed, the food is mixed with saliva. Saliva makes the food slippery for swallowing, and also contains the enzyme amylase, a carbohydrase that breaks down starch into smaller polysaccharides. Once food is swallowed it passes along the digestive system through the activity of peristalsis (wavelike smooth muscle contractions).

The small intestine is the major site of digestion and absorption in vertebrates, and has three distinct regions—the duodenum, the jejunum, and the ileum. Accessory glands such as the pancreas and liver secrete digestive enzymes and other products into the duodenum. The jejunum also releases digestive enzymes. These enzymes digest carbohydrates, proteins, nucleic acids, and fat, and the products of the digestion are absorbed by cells lining the small intestine, especially the ileum. The large intestine is connected to the small intestine.
