The digestive system, a complex organ, is essential for the smooth functioning of the body. Its functions include absorbing components of food, breaking down protein and carbohydrates, storing fat, and carrying away waste materials from the body. The digestive system enables the body to digest, absorb, metabolize, and distribute nutrients throughout the body. Like every other organ of the body, the digestive system can experience problems that prevent it from working properly. An unhealthy diet is a major problem for the digestive system. Bad eating habits and poor lifestyle choices can lead to digestive problems.
