No, the tongue is not the strongest muscle of the body. The tongue is made up entirely of muscle. It is made up of eight different muscles that intertwine with each other, creating a very flexible matrix. The masseter is the strongest muscle in the body that is responsible for lifting up the jaw.


Masseter: The masseter muscle is a facial muscle that plays a major role in the chewing of solid foods. The muscle is shaped similarly to a parallelogram, connecting to the mandible (lower jawbone) and the cheekbone.
