The lymphatic system is a complex network of lymph nodes and blood vessels throughout our body that transports lymphatic fluid containing toxins, biological waste, various proteins and fats. It helps fight infections or viruses. It does this by collecting toxins found in the body and flushing them out through the lymph nodes, while delivering oxygen and nutrients to the cells. The lymphatic system requires pressure from the blood vessels and movement from the muscles to pump around the body. Therefore, it is very important to drain the lymphatic system regularly to promote better circulation and regulate our immune system.
Fluid regulation is a key function of the lymphatic system in our body. Water retention occurs when excess fluid is not removed and water collects in the area. Water retention, swelling, or edema are all terms used to describe this condition. Technically speaking, the fluid in the blood plasma exits our blood vessels from our capillaries, and while most of the fluid returns to the blood through osmosis in the capillaries, some extracellular fluid remains in the interstitial space and must return to the blood through the lymphatics . When lymph fluid enters the subclavian vein, the lymphatic system removes excess fluid trapped in the cells and returns them to the circulatory system.
