What organ system breaks down food and absorbs nutrients?
The stomach breaks down food and the small intestine absorbs the nutrients.
A small amount of food/nutrients is absorbed through the lining the stomach.
liver Actually, the organ system you are referring to is called the digestive system.
the digestive system. The small intestine specifically absorbs nutrients u just learned something from an 11 year old :P
the circulatory system!
The digestive system.
The gastrointestional system digests food.
The primary organ of digestion and absorption of nutrients is the small intestine, especially the duodenum. In general, you could say the stomach breaks down the food, the small intestine digests and absorbs the food, and the large intestine absorbs water.
The organ that absorbs nutrients during digestion is the small intestine. The walls of the small intestines will absorb digested nutrients into the blood stream.
None. The stomach and liver break down the food, and the guts absorb the nutrients.
breaks down food into basic nutrients and packages unused digestive wastes for disposal
the organ that absorbs nutrients during digestion is the small intestine. the walls of the small intestines will absorb digested nutrients into the blood stream
Intestine and Its relatively long length gives nutrients ample time to digest and be absorbed into the circulatory system. The intestine secrets and absorbs nutrients to the blood:) XD
The digestive organ that is considered the primary organ of digestion is the small intestine but more specifically it is the duodenum of the small intestine. This is the region directly after the stomach and is approximately 25 cm long. The small intestine absorbs nutrients and large intestine absorbs water.
The Digestive System
In humans, almost all nutrients are absorbed via the wall of the small intestine.
The small intestine absorbs most of the nutrients in the food and transports it to the large intestine where the water will be sucked.
There are a number of organs involved in the processing of nutrients. Thegastrointestinaltract includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines. The small intestine breaks down about 95-97% of the nutrients. The G.I. track absorbs the nutrients into the blood cells, whichdistributesthem throughoutthe body.
gastrointestingal system (GI)
The Large Intestine.
1.because it absorbs the nutrients in the food into the blood stream 2.it also passes the undigested food to large intestine
The digestive system, basically the small intestines.
I think it's intestines
The organ that breaks down poison is the liver digestive system. That is all that know for now.
Your intestine absorbs more nutrition than any other organ. It is about 20 feet long. But the surface area for the absorption is very large. It is estimated to be about 2750 square feet.
The organ you are referring to is called the small intestine. Fats, carbohydrates and proteins are all digested and absorbed here.
circulatory system does.
The circulatory system.
The organ system breaks down.
Small intestine The small intestine. 👍 The intestines; the small intestine Small intestine
The cardiovascular system transports liquid and nutrients throughout the body.
The cardiovascular system
Well, the digestive system is responsible for the intake of nutrients, but it's the circulatory system that is responsible for, well, circulating the nutrients to the cells.
The only winding organ in the digestive system is the small intestine. It is where digestion finishes. Also, most nutrients are absorbed there. The remaining substance then passes to the large intestine, which absorbs much of the water and the minerals before excreting solid waste.
the circulatory system
The roots of a plant are responsible for absorbing water and nutrients from the soil to help in plant growth.
The stomach, which is in the digestive system.
The liver, which is in the digestive system.
galbladder and stomach
The small intestine absorbs the nutrients in food, but the large intestines absorb excess water.
Yes, They are part of the Circulatory System, an organ system that distributes materials and nutrients around the body.
The digestive system is responsible for absorbing fat. In particular, the small intestine absorbs fat.
The stomach breaks down food so that the intestines can absorb the nutrients.
