Colon

Colon Info

The colon, also known as the large intestine is where the final stage of digestion happens. There are 6 parts of the colon cecum, ascending colon, transverse colon, descending colon, sigmoid colon, and rectum.

The colon uses bacteria to breakdown and further process your food, as well as removes water and any last nutrients that may remain in the food and prepare the stool for excretion through the anal cavity.
