Pear-shaped and sack-like, the human stomach is the first organ of the digestive tract. Like an elastic balloon, the stomach can expand and contract depending on the amount of contents (typically food) inside. Gastric juices produced by the innermost stomach layer, or 'mucosa', break down food into a digestible size. Below the mucosa, the stomach has four more layers of muscle that move and mix the broken down food to the rest of the digestive tract where it gets absorbed by the body.
