Digestive System - II Total views (214)  
The chemical digestion of the starch occurs with the help of salivary amylase and it gets broken to disaccharides .The masticated food ' bolus' is swallowed and enters the stomach where once again the food is churned and mixed well and stored for nearly 2-3 hours for effective mechanical digestion with gastric juice. Chemical digestion of the protein present in the food occurs with the help of pep ......

Blood Vessels and Heart: Cardio Circulatory System Total views (239)  
The main components of the human cardiovascular system are the heart, the veins, the blood vessels and blood and the blood circulates in the whole body. The circulation includes the pulmonary circulation, the loop through the lungs where blood is oxygenated and the systemic circulation, a "loop" through the rest of the body to provide oxygenated blood.

Circulatory and Lymphatic System Total views (237)  
The Circulatory system is a system containing blood vessels, blood and heart which helps to transport life-giving oxygen, nutrients and hormones to cells throughout the body and toxic waste products from the respective organ. An average adult contains 4.7 to 5.7 liters of blood, which consists of plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.
Pages: 20
Price: Rs 15   
Respiratory System Total views (237)  
Respiration is a process which deals with the act of breathing that involves exchange of gases between air and blood and then between blood and tissue fluid. The blood transports oxygen from the lungs to the body cells and returns carbon dioxide from the cells to the lungs for excretion.

Endocrine System Total views (231)  
The endocrine system produces hormones that play a vital role in maintaining and regulating necessary functions of the body.
