S-A-L-I-V-A


According to The Free Dictionary, SALIVA is defined as the watery mixture of secretions from the salivary and oral mucous glands that lubricates chewed food, moistens the oral walls, and contains ptyalin.

I just found out the correct way to spell this word. All the while, I thought it should be spelled 'slyver' or 'sliver'...Stupid me!!!

If I'm not mistaken, ptyalin is a type of enzyme in the saliva that helps to break down the food.
