Does the digestive system work with the circulatory system?
The Circulatory System works with the Digstive System in several ways. One of them being that the digestive system breaks down food to get the nutrients, where it is then sent to the ileum (small intestine) to be absorbed by the villi that cover the walls of the ileum. In the villi there is a capillary that absorbs the nutrients into the lood stream and the blood then distributes these nutrients (or energy) around the body because of the pumping action of the heart. Hope this helps a bit :)
