The muscle-walled tube running from the mouth to the anus. It is divided into sections, such as the oesophagus, stomach and small and large intestines. Food enters at the mouth and moves along the tube, being digested (broken down) and absorbed into the body at various points along its length. Material that is left over, e.g., fibre (roughage), leaves the body, as stools, from the anus.
(di-JES-tiv trakt) the tubular passage between the mouth and the anus, including the organs through which food passes for digestion and elimination as waste. Also called the gastrointestinal, or GI, tract.

the system of the body that digests food. Food is chewed and swallowed before it travels down the esophagus to the stomach. Once there, enzymes and stomach acids mix with the food. Then, in the small intestine, enzymes break down the foods further and help absorb what's needed for the body. The colon then reabsorbs salts and fluids as well as stores waste, which is later eliminated through the rectum.
