Your gastrointestinal system is not just made up of your stomach and intestines. It is comprised of several organs that help the body break down and absorb food. Also known as your digestive system, the esophagus, stomach, large and small intestine, aided by the liver, gallbladder and pancreas convert the nutritive components of food into energy and break down the non-nutritive components into waste to be excreted.
