How long does it take food to go through your digestive system?
The process of digestion normally takes between 24 and 72 hours.
At first, food travels relatively quickly through your digestive system. Within 6 to 8 hours, the food has moved its way through your stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. Once in your large intestine, food can sit for more than a day while it’s broken down even more.
