Role of Lymphatic System

to collect and return interstitial fluid, including plasma protein to the blood,  and thus help maintain fluid balance,


to defend the body against disease by producing lymphocytes,

to absorb lipids from the intestine and transport them to the blood.

The lymphatic system and the lymph capillaries helps in getting oxygen and nutrients to the cells by removing dead cells, poisons, toxins, and excess water from the tissue spaces around the cells
