The digestive system is essential to good health because if the digestive system shuts down, the body cannot be nourished or rid itself of waste. It is also important for breaking down food into nutrients, which the body uses for energy, growth, and cell repair. Food and drink must be changed into smaller molecules of nutrients before the blood absorbs them and carries them to cells throughout the body.
