    Stomach growls when you're hungry. (But it also can happen when food passes though you digestive tract)

    To simplify a somewhat complex process, when you haven't eaten for a while , your brain detects it and makes you "feel" hungry. At the sane time it sends a message to stomach and intestine 'to be prepared for food that they might recieve soon'. This triggers muscle constriction and digestive acid secretion in stomach, so it rumbles.

    This whole process of "making you hungry' and 'signelling that you are hungry' is important coz if we don't feel hungry or don't get any 'reminders' like stomach growl, we might go for a long period without eating, which is harmful.
