Were you looking for information about the Digestive System? Digistive system is a common misspelling of digestive system.
The digestive system begins at the mouth and ends at the anus. The stomach breaks down the food you eat into small particles. These particles then travel to the small intestine.
As the small intestine continues to digest food, it absorbs nutrients your body needs for energy, growth, and repairs. The remainder then travels to the colon, where water is removed. Finally, waste products leave the body through the anus as stool when you have a bowel movement.
A variety of medical conditions can affect the digestive system, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, Crohn's disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. Symptoms and treatment options will depend on the affected area and the condition's severity.
