How the Intestine Works

Posted Jun 02 2009 4:41pm

The intestine is the lower part of the digestive tract. It extends from the stomach to the anus. The upper part, the small intestine, is narrow and intricate. It provides further digestion of food and absorbs nutrients from the digested food. The lower part, the large intestine, is wider and reabsorbs water from the digested foods and sends it back into the blood stream.
