The digestive system

The digestive system

Food entering the digestive tract is chewed, ground, broken down and converted to nutrients that enable the body to perform all its functions. At the end of this journey, which lasts more than 24 hours, the body expels everything it has not used. Farts, rumbles and burps are signs that your body is working properly.
