Gut and Digestion

The digestive system is made up of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract,  the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder.  The GI tract includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine.  The digestive systems are connected to several other body systems. They work together to process and digest food. According to National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, “Parts of the nervous and circulatory systems also play roles in the digestive process. Together, a combination of nerves, hormones, bacteria, blood, and the organs of the digestive system completes the complex task of digesting the foods and liquids a person consumes each day.” Due to the vast connection the gut has with other systems, balance in all areas is necessary.
