Natural Lymphatic System Support
What is the Lymphatic System?
The lymph system is one of the most important parts of the immune system, attacking harmful bacteria and viruses, as well as attacking mutated cells circulating in the blood stream. The famous killer T cells, produced by the lymph glands are macrophage cells which surround the harmful invaders and “eat” them. When one or more of the lymph glands become enlarged, it is a sign that the lymphatic system is becoming overwhelmed at trying to defend the body. Many different types of blood-related cancers often involve the lymph glands.
Whole World Botanicals offers products based on botanicals that may help support the healthy function of the lymphatic system.
