Stomach anatomy. Illustration of the stomach in sectioned view, showing its interior. The stomach is the organ that receives food from the oesophagus (gullet, top centre) and passes it onwards (bottom left) to the intestines. The stomach contains gastric juices, including hydrochloric acid, that break the food down to aid later digestion and absorption of nutrients. This is an anterior (frontal) view of the stomach.
