The following video is an example of intestinal peristalsis, the rthymic contraction and relaxation of the intestinal muscles to propel digested food through the intestinal tract. This process starts after food product is swallowed into the esophagus. It continues once the food is emptied through the pyloric valve into the small intestine. This motion allows for absorption of nutrients from the food product. Peristalsis continues throughout the small intestine and into the colon (large intestine) until defecation.
