4 Different Systems In Our Bodies

It is amazing what our bodies are capable of. They function every day without us telling them what to do. There are many that are lucky to have a body that functions well without too many problems. Not everyone is as lucky though. There are individuals that have to intervene in their bodies for them to function properly. For some, that means they are on medications, have had surgeries, or see a care provider regularly. If your body is not working properly, see a men’s wellness clinic to get some testing done. They will be able to figure out what is not doing its job and what can be done to help your body. Below are some of the major systems in our bodies and what they do. It is amazing how our bodies were designed to work. 

Circulatory System

One of the most important systems is the circulatory system. This is the system that is in charge of getting blood pumped to all parts of the body. It is your heart and all of your blood vessels throughout your body. Part of the heart pumps the blood to the rest of the body and the other half pumps the blood through the lungs to add oxygen to them. Your heart can pump between 60-100 times in a minute and while exercising it will beat faster due to working hard to get your muscles the blood and oxygen they need. 

Respiratory System

The main part of the respiratory system is your lungs. Your lungs breathe in oxygen, which is put into the blood that is going to travel to all parts of your body. The blood that comes back to the lungs contains carbon dioxide which is released when you exhale. After this, the process repeats itself getting the body oxygen and getting rid of the carbon dioxide through the lungs. 

Muscular System

Your body contains over 600 muscles that allow you to move. Your muscles are attached to your bones and controlled by the nerves that communicate with your brain to create movement. Every movement that you make usually consists of multiple muscles that are either contracting or relaxing to make that movement happen. If you choose to, you are able to work on the muscles that you have to be stronger and capable of more. 

Digestive System

The digestive system begins when you eat any food. Your teeth help you break down food in your mouth making it so you can swallow the food that you are eating. Once you swallow your food it travels through your esophagus to your stomach where it is broken down even more with stomach acid. After the stomach, it is sent through the small intestine where the nutrients are pulled from the food and sent through the circulatory system to the rest of the body. What is left after the nutrients are absorbed is sent through the large intestine and out of the body. No matter what you eat, your body is smart enough to pull the nutrients from it that your body can benefit from.
