Small intestine

From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

The small intestine is part of the gastrointestinal tract. Located between the stomach and the large intestine, it contains three regions: the duodenum, the jejunum, and the ileum. The small intestine primarily serves to absorb nutrients and minerals from food, via the villi.[1]
