Our body cells, as well as all living cells, need energy to live.  Our cells obtain that energy through the enzymatic catabolism (chemical breakdown) of organic molecules that we eat.  This energy is captured and then transferred to the high energy bonds in adenosine triphosphate (ATP).  Our cells can easily access and use the energy stored in these high energy bonds more...

Digestive System Anatomy
