What is the lymphatic system and why does it matter?

The lymphatic system is part of the immune system and a crucial player in your body’s ability to ward off disease and heal from injury. Proper functioning of the lymphatic system is vital to our body’s ability to drain stagnant fluid, regenerate tissue, filter out toxins and foreign substances, and maintain a healthy immune system. It works continuously to keep your body clean and functioning well.

Since the lymphatic system has such a big role in our health we can take extra measures to maintaining and taking special care of it. With a healthy lymphatic system, many people report being more healthy and energetic. With the amount of toxins that pile up within our body, it’s no wonder we feel good after purifying our bodies.
