This system is involved in digesting and absorbing nutrients and fluids, eliminating and detoxifying wastes, and is an integral part of the body s immune system the immune-system function of the GI tract is facilitated by large oval lymph tissues lining the gut called Peyer’s Patches and by multiple species of good bacteria that grow in the gut called probiotics.
