Benefits & Features
The lymphatic system
The lymphatic system consists of the lymphoid organs, which are spread throughout the body. These are the bone marrow, thymus, lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes, and spleen, as well as the adenoids and tonsils. The lymphatic system and lymphoid organs get their name because they are involved with the growth, development, and deployment of lymphocytes, white blood cells that are key to the immune system.
The lymphatic system plays the central role in building immune response. It enables the body to rid itself of bacteria and viruses, filters foreign substances and cell debris from the blood, and produces lymphocytes. It removes toxins that originated in the environment and toxic waste products that our cells produce as part of their metabolism. If these toxins are not removed, they can build up in the blood and eventually poison us.
Bone marrow is the soft tissue in the center of all the bones in the body. It produces both red and white blood cells. The white blood cells created in the bone marrow can be further divided into two types: lymphocytes and phagocytes. These two types of white blood cells are the immune system's front-line fighters. The bone marrow also houses the lymphocytes known as B cells until they reach maturity. B cells fight disease by secreting antibodies into the body fluid. These antibodies fight bacteria and viruses.
The thymus is located near the top of the lungs and behind the breast bone. It is a key to immune response. Lymphocytes known as T cells get their name from the thymus because after the bone marrow produces them they are passed on to the thymus, which fosters their development. T cells both regulate immune response and attack infected or malignant body cells. The thymus also acts as the central clearing house of immune response, passing lymphocytes into the lymphatic system, which transports them to where they are needed.
The lymphatic vessels are the arteries that carry white blood cells throughout the body. White cells also can travel in the blood, but the lymphatic vessels are better equipped to transport the waste materials that the white blood cells pick up. Like small creeks that empty into larger and larger rivers, the lymphatic vessels feed into larger and larger channels. At the base of the neck they merge and their contents are discharged into the bloodstream, which carries the waste to the kidneys for processing and removal from the body.
Lymph nodes and spleen
Lymph nodes are small, bean-shaped stopping points that are spread throughout the body. They are "wait stations" for white blood cells to congregate until they are needed to fight an invading pathogen. Clumps of lymphoid tissue are found in most parts of the body, especially in the linings of the digestive tract and the airways and lungs-all the places where pathogens can enter the body. These lymphatic tissues include the tonsils, adenoids, and appendix. The spleen also contains special compartments where white blood cells gather and work.
All told, the lymphatic system is composed of literally hundreds of miles of lymphatic vessels and lymph nodes. It is key to the elimination of waste products generated throughout the body. Dead cells, one of the major components of this waste, collect in the lymph nodes, where they are passed on to the bloodstream, which in turn delivers them to the lungs, kidneys, colon, and skin for elimination from the body. Together, all of the organs that make up the lymphatic system work to protect us from disease and illness.
Today, with the explosion in popularity of alternative medicine, many of us are aware of how herbs may be used for specific purposes. We all know that aloe vera is used for skin care, that soy and black cohosh support menopause, and that ginkgo biloba may improve memory.
The 11 herbs in Herbal Release? also work together for a specific purpose, although it is not a purpose well-known to most. They work together to promote lymphatic health.
