It is the blood that takes the food to other parts.
Your stomach contains strong acid (Hydrochloric) and enzymes (special protein molecules)
which attack and break the complex food molecules down into simpler compounds that can be dissolved in the blood.
You also have a vast range of symbiotic bacteria that live in your intestines.
These friendly bacteria also work to break down the food into compounds that both you and they can use.
Note that there are also unfriendly bacteria that live in the intestines, particularly in the lower intestines.
There are more different types of bacteria in your intestines than there are types of animal in the jungle.

Different people have different types of blood,
or more precisely, they have different types of antibodies (which guard us against infections) in their blood.
see <Wiki:BloodTypes>

Thumbs up

Very nice answer. Every single part of the digestive system (starting from mouth; chewing of food, till excretion) play an important role in digestion.
