The small intestine does not have a circular cross-section: on the internal wall are many thousands of small, finger-like projections, called villi.


Each villus is less than 1mm long and contains a loop of blood capillaries.


These specialised structures result in a much increased surface area for the absorption of the breakdown products of digestion and their more efficient diffusion into the blood.
