What happens in the small intestine?
|Q:||Ask a Question about What happens in the small intestine?|
The liver has many other useful functions in cleaning the blood and removing old red blood cells.
It breaks them down into a greenish liquid called bile, which is used to help the body digest fats. The digestive processes in the small intestine and the rest of the digestive system depend upon having the right amount of acid or alkali present.
Food reaches the stomach where digestion begins in a corrosive mixture. Digestion continues in stages as the food moves along the intestines, bathed in digestive juices that break it down so nutrients can be absorbed.
