Why You Should Care About Lymphatic System Health

The lymphatic system is the unsung hero of a strong immune system. This vital element of your circulatory system supports your immune system by carrying nutrients to and transporting toxins away from your cells, while also distributing disease-fighting white blood cells throughout your body.

However, unlike other bodily function, the lymphatic system relies entirely on physical activity to move throughout your body. Muscle contractions allow lymphatic fluids to circulate. Without physical movement, your cells will start to stew in their own juices, a state that contributes to degenerative diseases, arthritis, and worst of all cancer.

Your Lymphatic System Loves Movement

Your lymphatic system is comprised of fluid, vessels and ducts. When you move about, lymph fluid in your body begins to circulate. It’s connected with every organ in your body, and as it circulates, it begins to collect cellular waste and metabolic garbage.  This waste is then expelled from your body via the kidneys, bowels, lungs or skin.

Your lymphatic system is filled with millions of one-way valves, which allows the lymph fluid to flow in only one direction, usually upward, away from gravity. While any movement can stimulate the flow of lymph fluid inside the lymph vessels, the most efficient way to stimulate your lymphatic system is through jumping.

A Jump a Day Keeps Cancer Away

The more you move your body, the more you move your lymphatic fluid, but finding activities that are engaging and easy on your musculoskeletal system can be a challenge. Jumping on a trampoline positively stresses every cell in your body. Your body experiences heightened G-forces with a low impact that stimulates your lymphatic system while strengthening your bones, muscles, connective tissue, and even organs.

NASA scientists have recommend rebound exercise or jumping on trampolines for cellular health since the 1980s. Instead of jumping on the juicing bandwagon to detox your body, avoid extreme dieting and try out a trampoline jumping regiment for better overall lymphatic system health.

Choose Springfree Trampolines for Safety

If you’re looking to add a trampoline to your exercise plan, it’s important to choose equipment that will keep the whole family injury free. Many traditional trampoline designs are notorious for causing traumatic sprains and broken bones when children and adults alike slip through the surrounding springs or bang against hard metal frames.

A Springfree trampoline positions the frame out of harm’s way, well below the jumping surface. Fiberglass rods replace the traditional metal springs for a design that eliminates impact areas that cause 90 percent of all product-related trampoline injuries.
