The spleen is a fist-sized organ that is located in the left upper quadrant of your abdomen. It is considered to be part of the lymphatic system and works primarily to filter the blood. It also plays an important role with regulation of the red blood cells (RBC) and immune function. While it acts as a blood filter, it recycles old RBC and stores platelets and white blood cells (WBC). The spleen also works to protect the body from potentially harmful toxins and bacteria which helps with one's overall immune system health and function.
Occasionally, some people experience serious spleen issues like an enlargement, rupture or laceration, although these typically occur as a result of other issues or illnesses. If you’re looking for a product to support spleen health, we have a number of options that may be right for you!
