The liver produces bile, which helps emulsify fats, which allows them to pass through the intestines.
The stomach releases chyme, the processed food, into the intestines.
The pancreas releases insulin and other chemicals used in the digestive tract. Insulin tracks glucose levels in the bloodstream.
The food enters the small intestine, where more digestive juices break down the chyme. A variety of bacteria create enzymes to digest carbohydrates and nutrients are absorbed through the small intestine to the body.
Water is absorbed in the large intestines and waste products of digestion are stored in the rectum until a bowel movement, where waste is pushed out of the body.
