Digestion :: Chinese Medicine Herbal Supplements and Digestion
Digestion is the process by which food and drink are broken down into their smallest parts so the body can use them to build and nourish cells and to provide energy.
Your digestive system is a series of hollow organs joined in a long, twisting tube. It runs from your mouth to your anus and includes your esophagus, stomach, and small and large intestines. Your liver, gallbladder and pancreas are also involved.
Since so many organs are involved, our digestive function requires the most energy from our bodies.
