What does chemical digestion in the small intestine involve?
A. A significant amount of enzyme secretion by the intestinal mucosa B. Cholecystokinin (CCK), an intestinal hormone responsible for gallbladder contraction C. Secretions from the spleen that contain all enzymes necessary from complete digestion D. Bile salts that help emulsify carbohydrates so that they can be easily digested by enzymatic action
Cholecystokinin is in the body that helps with digestion. However, it does not break down everything. It helps to break down and digest fat and other proteins. The way that it works is by contracting the gallbladder. Cholecystokinin is known as CCK. It is an intestinal hormone responsible for gallbladder contraction. You would most likely see CCK in fatty acids in the body or in the amino acids.
The function of this important part of the body is involved in gastrointestinal areas, digestion, satiety, neurological, anxiogenic, panicogenic, and hallucinogenic. Sometimes, CCK can be a problem like for those with Parkinson’s Disease. Since people with Parkinson’s sometimes see things that are not there, it is believes that CCK sometimes causes those visions.
