Liver
The liver helps in processing the nutrients absorbed from the small intestine. It is known as the "chemical factory" of the body as it takes away the raw materials absorbed by the intestine and keeps all the essential chemicals the body needs. It helps detoxifies harmful chemicals from the food and drugs that the body consumes.

Pylorus
The pylorus opens and closes during digestion. It helps the partially ingested food and other stomach content move from the stomach to the small intestine.

stomach
The stomach acts as storage that keeps food while it is being mixed with stomach enzymes that process and break down food.

Pancreas
The pancreas emits digestive enzymes to the duodenum that break down protein, fats, and carbohydrates. It also produces insulin.

Gallbladder
The gallbladder keeps the bile from the liver, and then it will secrete to the duodenum to help absorb fats and vitamins.

Left Colic Flexure
The left colic is located at the junction of the transverse and descending parts of the colon.

Right Colic Flexure
The right colic or hepatic flexure divides the ascending and transverse colon.

Duodenum
The duodenum handles the repeated breaking-down process.

Duodenuum Jejunum Junction
The border between the duodenum and the jejunum is the duodenojejunal junction.

Transverse Colon
The transverse colon also helps the body to absorb salts and water.

Jejunum
The jejunum handles the absorption of sugars, amino acids, and fatty acids.

Ascending Colon
The ascending colon helps absorb water and nutrients from the indigestible material and form it into a stool.

Descending Colon
The descending colon holds feces that passes through the rectum.

Cecum
The cecum absorbs the fluids and salts that remain after the completion of intestinal digestion.

Ileocecal Junction
The Ileocecal junction allows the digested food to pass from the small intestine to the large intestine. This process is under the neuronal and hormonal control.

Ileum
The role of ileum is to better digest food to help the body absorbs vitamins minerals, carbohydrates, fats, proteins and water.

Appendix
The appendix stores lymphoid tissue that aids in destroying bacteria to protect the intestine wall during absorption.

Rectum
The rectum connects the colon and anus. It serves as a passageway of the stool from the colon.

Sigmoid Colon
The sigmoid colon contracts to build pressure in the colon to help with the movement of the stool to the rectum.

Anal Canal
The anal canal is the last part of the gastrointestinal tract that is responsible for the keeping and elimination of fecal content.

Taking care of your digestion and food intake.

It starts with the gut. The intestine handles food digestion. When digesting food, it helps convert various substances that bring messages throughout the body. It also helps fight germs and controls the water balance in the body.
