The Large Intestine's main function is to receive the digested turbid content from the Small Intestine, absorb remaining water, move it downwards, form stools and discharge it through the anus.
Dysfunction of the Large Intestine may result in abdominal pain, loose stools or constipation. Digestive Disorder such as indigestions, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Heartburn may arise from such a disharmony.
