The blood vessel which carries blood from the alimentary canal (digestive system) to the liver is called the "hepatic portal vein." Unlike most veins, which carry blood back to the heart, the hepatic portal vein carries nutrient-rich blood from the digestive organs, such as the stomach, small intestine, and large intestine, to the liver. The liver plays a crucial role in metabolizing and detoxifying nutrients and toxins absorbed from the digestive system before the blood enters the systemic circulation. The hepatic portal vein allows the liver to regulate and process the nutrients and toxins before they enter the bloodstream, which helps maintain homeostasis in the body. The other options listed (hepatic artery, hepatic vein, and mesenteric artery) are not involved in carrying blood from the digestive system to the liver.
