Systems: The circulatory system is the system consisting of your heart and blood vessels. This system transports oxygen and nutrient to the body and waste products to the organs that eliminate them. The Digestive system is where oral intact is broken down into absorbable particles. These particles are then absorbed into the blood to be transported to the body by the circulatory system.
