The 3 “Super Friends” of the Digestive System
The “Super Best Friends” of Digestion
 The Liver (Batman) and Gallbladder (Robin)
The Liver produces Bile, which breaks down fats into fatty acids, which can be taken into the body by
the digestive tract. And the Gallbladder stores the Bile until it is released into the small intestine.
The “Additional Super Friend” of Digestion
The Pancreas (Flash)
The Pancreas produces Enzymes, or digestive juices, and releases them into the small intestine to
further break down food after it has left the stomach. The gland also produces the hormone insulin and
secretes it into the bloodstream in order to regulate the body's glucose or sugar level.
