how is the small intestine designed to absorb digested food?

Asked by  | 30th Mar, 2008, 10:52: PM

Expert Answer:

The inner lining of the small intestine has numerous villi which increase the surface area for absorption. The villi are richly supplied with blood vessels which take the absorbed food to each and every cell of the body.
