Understanding the lymphatic system’s role in your overall health and how the components of it (lymph fluid, lymph nodes, and lymph vessels) work. The lymphatic system acts as a disposal for different toxins such as, harmful and dead cells, wastes and viruses, and fluid build-up that your body naturally creates.

Furthermore it helps your body fight off infections. Fluids flow through the system and are filtered through the lymph nodes. If you’re sick or exposed to a lot of toxins, the system may become backed up and clogged. That is why your lymph nodes often become swollen when you have a cold.

What is the lymphatic system?

The lymphatic system is made up of lymphatic vessels connected to lymph nodes. It can be best understood by comparing it to the circulatory system.  Unlike the circulatory system, which relies on the heart to act as a pump to circulate blood throughout our body, the lymphatic system is a closed system, with no pump to circulate or pump lymph fluid. The two main ways flow of the lymph fluid is stimulated in the lymphatic system are by movement/exercise and through gravitational pressure.

Veins and blood vessels carry blood to organs, tissues and individual cells throughout the body. The lymphatic system is a similar network, only instead of blood it carries lymph. The human body contains hundreds of lymph nodes in areas like the chest, underarms and groin. The following are also important components of the lymphatic system:

  • Spleen – This organ located just above your left kidney controls blood storage and helps fight infection.
  • Tonsils – These large groups of lymphatic cells act as the body’s first line of defence and are located in the throat.
  • Thymus – Lymphocytes are white blood cells that mature into T-cells to fight infection and destroy cancer cells.

It is also part of the body’s immune system, it helps balance fluids and is necessary for fat-soluble nutrients to be digested and absorbed.

An exercise trampoline, engages both of these methods, making it an effective and efficient means of maintaining a healthy lymphatic system, while simultaneously providing a fun and challenging workout.
