Since the small intestine helps absorb nutrients and calories from digested food, the small intestine needs to be long enough so it can go through full digestion.
It's called the Small Intestine. It is the longest part of your digestive system. Through a muscular movement called peristalsis, food is squeezed through the small intestine. The nutrients from food are absorbed into your blood stream by microvillus, which are microscopic and line the intestine. Once the food has passed through the small intestine, all the important nutrients have been extracted so the left over food is passed on through the large intestine and later excreted.
The food first goes to the small intestine and then to the large intestine. The tube itself is called the INTESTINE. Rohit Prasad
