Activities thick guts

From the small intestine leftover food, mixed with digestive juices, goes into the large intestine, where they are formed fecal emitted from the body. The main duty of the colon is the absorption of fluids, seal food residues. In this respect, the colon does a great job. In fact, apart from those 2 liters of fluid that on average we entered with food and drink, in the cavity of the digestive tube is pouring out about 10 litres of juices. If all this fluid lost from the body and filled with faeces, we would need to drink in 5 times more. However, the water component of the liquid basis of all juices, absorbed almost all of the back - only about 100 g it stands out as part of feces.
A significant part of Kala - up to 1/3, and sometimes 1/2 mass - make up of the body countless microbes that live in the intestines. One scientist has calculated that every day we throw away from the body 130 trillion microbial phone and some of them are pathogenic, pathogenic microbes. Populating our colon, microbes parasitize on the remains of food, not being involved in the digestion of food. Moreover, they cause rotting undigested protein residues, and this, as we'll see, is not harmless for our body. The ruminant animal digestive tract microbes, by contrast, is useful. The main carbohydrate plants is cellulose. In its pure form it is well-known wool. Fiber has great economic importance, forming the core of wood, paper, cotton fabrics, etc. Molecule of fiber, as the molecule starch, built from the same glucose. However, in the tissue of these "bricks" are tied very tightly and don't split our digestive juices.
Microbes have enzymesthat break down cellulose. Therefore, parasitizing in the digestive tracts of grazing animals, microbes bring their hosts many benefits, helping them partially disposed of indigestible fiber.
