Your Digestive System and How It Works


Your Digestive System and How It Works

Logo for Your Digestive System and How It Works
This is from the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse. It gives a simplified explanation of why digestion is important, how food is digested, and how the digestive process is controlled. There is a diagram labelling all the organs of the system and describing movement of food through the system. It discusses digestive enzymes ("juices"), absorption and transport of nutrients and hormonal regulation of digestion.
