010: The role of the lymphatic system in fat metabolism

Masterjohn Q&A Files Episode 10


Question: "I'm curious about the role of the lymphatic system in fat metabolism, specifically in high-fat, low-carb diets. Is there a biochemical explanation for why improving lymphatic circulation would improve fat metabolism?"

Well, I wouldn't call it biochemical, I'd call it physiological, but yes.

Fat goes from your gut through your lymphatic system to your blood. If your lymphatic circulation is not good, neither is the delivery of your fat to any part of your body. It's as simple as that.

If your lymphatic system is slow, so is your delivery of fat to every organ in your body.
