Lymphatic Tonic Tea
The lymphatic system is an extensive and interconnected system of vessels, spaces, and nodes in the body which circulates lymph, a fluid made from protein and other fluids. Lymph is initially part of the blood, but as blood flows through the body, lymph slowly leaks out, taking hazardous substances with it and filtering these substances through the lymph nodes, which trap these substances. Over time, the lymph slowly works its way around the body, eventually re-entering the heart so that it can be circulated all over again.
Many people are familiar with the circulatory system, which moves blood around the body, but they may not be as familiar with the lymphatic system, because it isn’t quite as flashy. However, the lymphatic system is still extremely important, as lymph performs a number of vital functions in the body, especially in the context of the immune system. This tea will strengthen and nourish the lymphatic system.
