Exploring Gastrointestinal Function

The gastrointestinal (GI) system is made up of the parts that break down food and absorb nutrients. The stomach, intestines, liver, and pancreas are all in this area. The GI system breaks down food, gets nutrients from it, and gets rid of waste. When you have a disorder like gastritis or irritable bowel syndrome, it can stop working properly, which can cause stomach pain and indigestion.
