Love Your Lymph Tea

$8.50 each

The lymphatic system is a part of the circulatory system. It is home to our immune system, is an accessory to our waste removal systems and eliminatory organs, and a part of the nutritive process.

The lymphatic system is made up of lymphatic vessels, nodes (including the spleen) tissues, and fluid. 

Here are some of the jobs the oft-times overlooked lymphatic system does for you:

- Vital part of your immune system

- The spleen acts as a blood reservoir, circulates waste down to be removed, and nutrients up into the body to help build and nourish cells. It is also responsible for the destruction of old red blood cells, and assisting their passage to the liver for further conjugation and processing for elimination.

- The lymphatic system is responsible for around 90% of nutrient absorption through the villa in the small intestine. The system also returns fluid, and fats to the liver to be prepared for blood circulation to round out the digestive and nutritive process.

The nodes support detoxifying and eliminatory organs by filtering toxins from lymph fluid before returning said ?fluids to interface with the blood.

- Lymphatic nodes produce some white blood cells.

- Lymphoid tissues have several important organs. One such organ is the thymus gland. It produces T cells. As we reach puberty the thymus grows. At puberty, when sex hormones begin production, it begins to atrophy and is replaced by fat. 

- The tonsils trap and collect bacteria and viruses as we inhale, protecting the rest of our body.

Signs of lymphatic deficiency include slow recuperation when ill, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, asthma or hay ?fever & poor digestion of fats.

Symptoms of Lymphatic Deficiency: recuperates slowly when ill, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, asthma or hay ?fever, digests fat poorly

Signs of spleen deficiency include edema, anemia, dampness in the stomach and swollen lymph nodes. There is decreased immune function, loss of appetite and decreased digestive function.

This lovely tea is a blend of safe and gentle depurative herbs to enhance the function of the lymphatic system, to improve its ability to flush out toxins, decrease congestion, and reduce swelling.
