    It is one of the primary sites for the absorption of digested protein fragments.
    It is the site where protein digestion begins due to the actions of pepsin.
    Rhythmic contractions known as peristaltic movements move food into the stomach and aid in the mixing of the partially digested contents and the gastric secretions (chyme) of the stomach.
    It produces a thick mucus secretion along the stomach lining that protects the stomach from being digested by its own secretions (e.g., pepsin).
