I am assuming you mean the small intestine as the large intestine only transports water. Nothing is needed it just uses pressure and sort of ssqueezes stuff through and also it is lined with villi which are small micro-structures and they make the surface area of the small intestine bigger and therefore it is easier for things to travel through it (:.
