The stomach mixes food with acid and enzymes that break down nutrients. The mixture is called chyme.
In the small intestine, pancreatic fluid and bile are mixed with chyme.
From the small intestine, nutrients enter the bloodstream and are circulated to the body's cells.
The liver makes bile, stores nutrients, and breaks down toxins.
The large intestine absorbs water, changing liquid waste into semisolid stool, or feces.
