HOW TO SUPPORT YOUR LYMPHATIC HEALTH AT WOODSIDE
The lymphatic system is essentially your body’s built-in sanitation center. It filters and carries out waste from your cells, tissues, and organs. It also absorbs fat and fat soluble vitamins from your digestive track and delivers them to the cells of your body. It also is vital to the success of your immune system as it maintains fluid levels, fights infections and producing white blood cells. Your lymphatic system, unlike other systems in your body, needs help with moving the lymph fluid through the body to filter and support immunity properly. This month, we wanted to show you all of the ways in which you can use Woodside to support your lymphatic health, but first let’s learn about what exactly your lymphatic system is.
WHAT IS THE LYMPH SYSTEM MADE OF?
Essentially your lymph system is made up of lymph vessels, lymph fluid and lymph nodes that all work together to clean and protect your cells and body from colds and diseases as well as clear out waste.
Lymph Vessels are network of tubes that connect your lymph nodes throughout the body. Lymph fluid travels through the vessels and then drains into the blood stream.
Lymph Nodes live throughout your body but are heavily concentrated in the neck, armpits and stomach or abdomen. They help break down bacteria and other harmful cells from the lymph fluid. They vary in size and the number of nodes vary from person to person.
Lymph Fluid is what surrounds all the body tissues. This is the fluid that helps carry the waste and white blood cells through the body to be filtered by your lymph nodes.
