What Is the Overall Function of the Digestive System?

Answer

The overall function of the digestive system is to take in food, break it down into nutrient molecules and absorb these molecules into the blood stream. The remaining indigestible remains are then gotten rid of through the anus. This in turn ensures the body is built and the cells are nourished to provide energy.
