"Villi" in context

A Villi is a small, finger-like projection on the surface of certain cells that can help increase the rate of absorption of nutrients in the body. They are mainly found in the small intestine, where they play an important role in aiding digestion and absorption of different vitamins and minerals. The vast surface area of the villi helps to expand the small intestine's absorbent capabilities, enabling the body to gain more nutrients from the food we eat. In addition, villi help transport the absorbed nutrients to other parts of the body.

The villi are covered with a single layer of epithelium cells.
