What is the lymphatic system?

The lymphatic system is a network of vessels that runs throughout the body, similar to the circulatory system. It helps to remove waste products, excess fluid, and toxins from the body. The lymph nodes are small organs that are located along the lymphatic vessels. They filter the lymph fluid and help to fight infection.

Unlike circulatory system, lymphatic system does not have centralised pump (like heart) and relies heavily on muscle contraction. This is another reason why exercising is so important for us (especially high intensity workouts that make us sweat).
