small intestine - another organ of digestion system

More than 6 meters of small intestine 

The small intestine is a long tube with a diameter or contour between 3.5 and 5 centimeters, which retreated on himself inside yourself, below the stomach. If you extend your computer's small intestine, measured about 6.7 meters long - as 22 notebooks lined one after another! 

The small intestine plays an important role in breaking down the mix of food from the stomach even more, so your body can absorb all the nutrients it contains vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates and fats. The roast chicken contains many proteins - and a little fat - and the small intestine will help you absorb them, as long as their friends - the pancreas, liver and gall bladder - you throw a hand. 

The bodies just mentioned various juices to send the first portion of the small intestine. These juices help to digest food and allow the body to absorb the nutrients they contain. The pancreas produces some juices that help the body to digest fats and proteins. Which secretes a juice called bile, the liver helps to absorb fats in the bloodstream. And the gallbladder is like a store bile, which stores this juice to your body when you need it. 

The foods you eat can stay for up to 4 hours in your small intestine until it becomes a liquid mixture and watery. It is a time well spent, because at the end of the trip, nutrients from the pizza, chicken, oranges and milk may move from the intestine into the blood. Once in the blood, your body will be much closer to harness the complex carbohydrates in the body of the pizza, the vitamin C of oranges, chicken protein and calcium from milk.
