Digestion is a process of breaking down of large insoluble food molecules into small water-soluble food molecules so that they can be absorbed into the watery blood plasma. Digestion is a form of catabolism process in which enzymes break down food into the small molecules that body can use. These smaller substances are absorbed through the small intestine into the blood stream.
Digestion is 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. The body breaks down nutrients from food and drink into carbohydrates, protein, fats, and vitamins.
