Our body consists of two systems for circulation of body fluids. The blood vascular system and lymphatic system.


Blood vascular system circulates blood throughout the body. Arteries distribute blood while veins collect blood. Capillaries are at the end of arteriole.
From capillaries plasma of blood leaks out. The leaked plasma is the fluid surrounding tissue. This is called lymph.
The lymphatic vessels and lymphatic hearts collect tissue fluid that is lymph pours it once again in circulating.
Lymphatic system restores total blood volume.
