What is the Intestinal Lining?
The digestive tract consists of the mouth, esophagus, stomach and intestines. It serves as a place for food breakdown and nutrient absorption to take place. The intestinal lining is a thin mucosal membrane that lines the small and large intestines. This delicate lining is semipermeable; this means the membrane allows nutrients into the bloodstream and keeps toxins, pathogens, and undigested food out. When toxins enter the bloodstream, many health conditions may occur. The intestinal lining serves many functions. Three of the most critical are:
- Helps to continue the digestion process after the food you consumed leaves the stomach.
- Assists with the absorption of nutrients from food; this part of the digestion process occurs in the small intestine after food leaves the stomach.
- Helps to prevent harmful bacteria and undigested food from entering the bloodstream.
