How is the small intestine designed to absorb digested food?

Answer :

The surface of the intestine is made up of finger-like projections known as villi. The main function of the villi is to increase the surface area for the absorption of the digested food in the small intestine. Blood vessels within villi absorb digested food and transport it to body cells via the bloodstream.
