Why do organisms take food?

Living organisms take food because it provides the energy that helps in boosting our body's internal functions, repairs, builds, and maintains cells and body tissues. It also supports the external activities that enable you to interact with the physical world.

Living organisms ingest food through mouth and food is digested inside the digestive system. The food is being treated with several enzymes and acids. The digested food is then absorbed through the intestine. This absorbed nutrients from food provide energy to the body.

Water is the body's most important nutrient, which helps in carrying out the chemical reactions that produce energy from food.
