For Better Lymphatic Circulation
Lymph flow includes a special system of vessels in the body through which excess tissue fluid, that has not returned to the venous capillaries, flows into the venous system. The most important difference between blood flow and lymph flow is that blood flow is a closed, continuous system of vessels through which blood circulates, while lymph flow is a discontinuous system of vessels through which excess tissue fluid flows from the tissue spaces into the bloodstream. Lymph is rich in proteins, coarse particles, bacteria, etc. The function of the lymphatic system is the formation and transport of lymph, the formation of lymphocytes, and protection against infection.
The lymphatic system consists of lymph, lymphatic vessels, lymph glands, and lymphatic organs. The composition of the lymph is equal to the composition of the intercellular fluid of the part of the body from which the lymph flows and is rich in protein (about 0.17 lb/gal), fat droplets in the gastrointestinal tract, electrolytes, etc. It is formed in the intercellular space, enables drainage by supplementing the bloodstream, and due to the presence of lymphocytes and other leukocytes, it participates in the body's defense reactions.
