The activity of the digestive system breaks everything down into constituent parts. My guess would be that the absorbed nutrients are amino acids, nucleic acids, simple sugars etc.

Yes indeedy. Carbohydrates, proteins (that break down to amino acids), lipids and vitamins. Even DNA can be absorbed in the body as nucleotides that may be broken further--but I don't think it's considered a nutrient.
