Gastrointestinal Physiology Gastrointestinal Physiology looks at the functioning of the gastrointestinal system. It is a branch of human physiology concerned with the functions of the gastrointestinal system. Gastrointestinal health is maintained by four basic processes that are digestion, secretion, motility and absorption. Digestion describes how food is broken into small biochemical components, absorption is concerned with how the small biochemical components are absorbed into the body, motility explains how food and waste products move from mouth to anus and secretion tells how the digestive juices are controlled or secreted. The gastrointestinal tract starts from the mouth and terminates at the anus.
