What conditions affect the lymphatic system?
Unlike the circulatory system, with the heart that provides the driving force for blood circulation through the vessels, the lymphatic system is driven by what is known as a muscle pump - the contractions and relaxations of the muscles cause a compression on the vessels, thereby promoting the transport of blood and lymph.Therefore, a sedentary lifestyle weakens the function of the lymphatic system. We should avoid wearing tight clothes or high-heeled shoes.
The hormonal imbalance - estrogen activity - also plays a role in the formation of cellulite. Estrogen affects the structure of connective tissue in women, collagen and elastin fibers are arranged longitudinally (fat cells can more easily move between them, forming characteristic thickening) - while in men they form a reticular arrangement - preventing the migration of fat cells. The linear arrangement of the skin support fibers in women is important because skin is elastic and more able to stretch, which is essential during pregnancy. Female hormones cause an increase in the permeability of blood vessels, which is associated with increased entry of plasma into the surrounding cells - swelling is formed, and it can lead to impaired blood and lymph flow. Estrogens also stimulate lithogenesis - the accumulation of fat in fat cells, which can lead to an increase in their volume, and affect the microcirculation of blood and lymph.
