Anatomical Charts of the Intestinal Tract
Did you know that your digestive tract is populated by microorganisms called “gut flora?” These fascinating and tiny bacteria live to help break down undigested carbohydrates into energy, as well as helping our immune systems and providing us with vitamins like biotin and vitamin K. There are more than 100 trillion microorganisms living in the human intestinal tract, more than ten times the number of cells in the human body. Really, they function almost as if they were their own organ! While we’ve learned that humans can survive without these bacteria, their benefits are many, making them a unique and fascinating aspect of our digestive process.
One way to study this digestive process, and the intestines’ role in it, is anatomical charts, such as The Digestive Tract Anatomy Chart. This oversized poster features both healthy and diseased features of the digestive tract, including information on the mastication of food, the muscles of the mandible, the intestinal villi – All the way to excretion!
For those who prefer a hands-on approach to their study, one great option is the GI Tract Anatomy Model. It details the large and small intestine, plus several common intestinal pathologies such as Crohn’s disease, polyps, cancer, and infections. The model is budget conscious and appropriate for a variety of audiences, and makes a great addition to patient education.
Anatomy Warehouse offers a full range of anatomical study aids for a variety of audiences.
