12 Important Human Body Organs and their peak timings: Lungs, Intestines,  Stomach, Spleen.  There are 12 important organs in our body, which will be at its peak for two  hours a day. Normal health or disease of any person depends on this factor.  To lead a healthy life, one should learn one's own body functioning  language.

1. Organ

Early Morning (3AM-5AM)

Breakfast should be completed during this time.


Morning (9AM-11AM)

It is better to avoid eating. Not even a drop of Water. If food is taken in  this time, it will increase body temperature, tiredness will increase and  digestion power will come down. Particularly diabetic patient will suffer  from palpitation, drowsiness etc.









Noon (11AM-1PM)
Only water can be taken at this time. One shall neither do any hard work nor  sleep at this time. Otherwise more Carbon dioxide will get mixed with oxygen  and chances of getting heart attack or paralytic attack or body pain are  likely. Generally doctors will be on double alert in hospitals during this  time because heart and diabetic patients may get heart attack during this time compared to other hours.

Small Intestine

Description: 12
Important Human Body Organs and their peak timings

What do our Lungs do?

Our lungs do a vital job. Each day, we take about  23,000 breaths, which bring almost 10,000 quarts of air into our lungs. The  air that we breath in contains several gases, including oxygen, that our  cells need to function. With each breath, our lungs add fresh oxygen to your  blood, which then carries it to our cells. The main function of our lungs is  respiration.

Major function of Intestines:

The small and large intestines perform  different functions. The small intestine is where the most extensive part of digestion occurs. Most food products are absorbed in the small intestine.  The large intestine is responsible for absorption of water and excretion of  solid waste material. Food and waste material are moved along the length of  the intestine by rhythmic contractions of intestinal muscles; these  contractions are called peristaltic movements. Waste is solid because most  of the water has been removed by the intestines as it travels through them.

What is the stomach?

The stomach is an organ of digestion. It has a saclike  shape and is located between the esophagus and the intestines. The human  stomach is a muscular, elastic, pear-shaped bag, lying crosswise in the  abdominal cavity beneath the diaphragm. It changes size and shape according  to is position of the body and the amount of food inside. The stomach is  about 12 inches (30.5 cm) long and is 6 inches. (15.2 cm) wide at its widest
point. The stomach's capacity is about 1 qt (0.94 liters) in an adult.

Food enters the stomach from the esophagus. The connection between the  stomach and the esophagus is called the cardiac sphincter. The cardiac sphincter prevents food from passing back to the esophagus. Heart burn is  the sensation when stomach juices (gastric juice) is allowed to seep through  the sphincter into the esophagus. Once the food enters the stomach, gastric  juices are used to break down the food. Some substances are absorbed muscle  lining of the stomach. One of the substances the stomach absorbs is alcohol.

The other end of the stomach empties into the duodenum. The duodenum is the  first section of the small intestine. The pyloric sphincter separates the  stomach from the duodenum.






What is the Spleen?

The human spleen is an organ that creates lymphocytes  for the destruction and recycling of old red-blood cells. The spleen is also  a blood reservoir. It supplies the body with blood in emergencies such as a
bad cut. The spleen is also the location where white blood cells trap  organisms.

The spleen is shaped like a loose fist and is tucked under the left side of  the diaphragm.

The average weight of an adult spleen is 0.44 lbs. During and after digestion, the size of the spleen increases. Infection of malaria or mono  can also cause the spleen to increase in size.

If the increase in size is significant, the spleen can rupture. If the  spleen ruptures, immediate medical care is necessary. You may need emergency  surgery to control the bleeding.

Major Functions of Urinary Bladder:

The urinary bladder is the organ that  collects urine excreted by the kidneys before disposal by urination. Nerves  in the urinary bladder tell you when it is time to urinate (empty your  bladder). As the urinary bladder first fills with urine, you may notice a  feeling that you need to urinate. The sensation to urinate becomes stronger  as the urinary bladder continues to fill and reaches its limit. At that  point, nerves from the urinary bladder send a message to the brain that the  urinary bladder is full, and your urge to empty your urinary bladder  intensifies.

When you urinate, the brain signals the urinary bladder muscles to tighten,  squeezing urine out of the urinary bladder.

Major Functions of Kidney:

Kidneys have a couple of different functions. The  main purpose of the kidney is to separate urea, mineral salts, toxins, and  other waste products from the blood. The kidneys also conserve water, salts and electrolytes. At least one kidney must function properly for life to be  maintained.

Major Functions of Gall Bladder:

The function of the gallbladder is to store  bile and concentrate. Bile is a digestive liquid continually secreted by the  liver. The bile emulsifies fats and neutralizes acids in partly digested  food. A muscular valve in the common bile duct opens and the bile flows from  the gallbladder into the cystic duct, along the common bile duct, and into  the duodenum (part of the small intestine).

Some of the functions of our Liver are:

To produce substances that break  down fats, convert glucose to glycogen, produce urea (the main substance of  urine), make certain amino acids (the building blocks of proteins), filter  harmful substances from the blood (such as alcohol), storage of vitamins and  minerals (vitamins A, D, K and B12) and maintain a proper level or glucose  in the blood. The liver is also responsible for producing cholesterol. It  produces about 80% of the cholesterol in our body.

Our body has an built clock. It is called Circadian clock and it is  programmed to carry out the following functions. Since we do not schedule  our activities and the frequent travellers also cross from one time zone to  another, this clock knows how to adjust as easily as you adjust your wrist  watch to the new time, provided you cooperate with it. Circadian clock also  can be programmed to wake you up at a particular time and it is more  reliable than the human clock.
