Food enters the bloodstream through hepatic veins and the villi in the small intestines. The blood is filtered in the liver before circulating through the lungs, where the blood is infused with oxygen before moving on to the heart. The blood then leaves the heart via the aorta to the kidneys where it is purified. The liver filters out toxins of food, alcohol and bacteria, and stores glycogen to convert into glucose when needed. The kidneys ensure hormonal balance (sexual hormones), maintain electrolyte balance (mineral balance), and control the blood sugar via the adrenal glands.

Kidney stones form when the kidneys fail to filter properly or as a result of nephritis.
