What is the lymphatic system?
The lymphatic system forms part of your circulatory system and is comprised of a network of lymphatic vessels that carry clear fluid called lymph fluid, and includes 600-700 lymph nodes spread across your body.
What is the function of the lymphatic system?
Where blood distributes nutrients and oxygen to your tissue, your lymphatic system removes the metabolic waste that is produced. It is described as your body’s garbage removal system. It also plays a vital part in the functioning of the immune system.
How does lymph fluid move around?
The Lymph fluid flows in one direction under the surface of the skin, from the hands and feet, through the main filters (lymph nodes) upward to the base of the neck where the subclavian veins release it back into circulation as plasma in the blood.
There is more than double the amount of lymph fluid in the body than blood. The lymphatic system doesn’t have a pump like the heart to pump the fluid around the body and largely depends on muscle movements.
People that therefore don’t move and exercise enough have a greater risk of having poor lymphatic flow.
What does all of this mean?
People that suffer from water retention and cellulite most likely have a compromised Lymphatic system. This means that the lymphatic fluid is not flowing the way it should. It can be described as the body’s garbage removal system not working, causing waste to pile up in the kitchen and restricting new supplies to come in.
