Don’t Sleep on this Crucial Body System

There is a system in the body that is actually a part of the Circulatory System & the Immune System and without it, life would be very difficult to sustain. This unsung hero is the Lymphatic System. It’s made up of a network of very small vessels that channel lymph fluid from all over the body. There are multiple parts of this system, the major parts of the lymph tissue are located in the bone marrow, spleen, thymus gland, lymph nodes, and the tonsils. Lymphatic tissue is also found in the heart, lungs, intestines, liver, and skin. This system carries oxygen, nutrients and hormones to the cells, it removes toxic waste, the immune component attacks microbes and sends signals in the body to make white blood cells and create antibodies and so on, and last, it’s very important to our fluid balance.

What would happen if the lymphatic system didn’t function at all?

The lymphatic system is crucial because water, proteins, and other substances are constantly leaking out of the small blood capillaries into the surrounding body tissues. If the lymphatic system didn’t drain the excess fluid, there would be a build up in the tissues of the lymph fluid causing the tissues to swell as seen below.
