Human Body Systems
The human body is a most incredible and complex system of living cells which combine to form tissues and organs to make us the most unique species ever known to have lived on planet Earth. Incredibly, every single one of the over 7 billion human bodies currently living is unique. Not one body is the same as another. But one thing is common, we all have the same human body systems which even though they are all connected and integrated to make us who we are, they are individual systems performing specific functions. Therefore, different foods, exercise and supplements can assist you in helping to maintain the health of each of these systems.
- Cellular System - All life, human and other, is comprised of cells. Cells are the very basis of life, the basic structural unit of all living things. Cells absorb the nutrients from the foods we eat through the cell membrane, therefore, a healthy body begins with healthy cells.
- Circulatory System (Cardiovascular System) - Circulates blood around the body via the heart, arteries and veins, delivering oxygen and nutrients to all of the organs and cells carrying their waste products away. It also regulates the body's temperature.
- Digestive System and Excretory System - This system absorbs nutrients and removes waste via the gastrointestinal tract including the mouth, oesophagus, stomach and intestines. It eliminates waste from the system.
