Lymph Formation Dont Cry over Spilled Blood Its the Lymph Now Is That Clear

Near the very beginning of this chapter, we defined plasma as the clear, watery, liquid ''matter'' (plasm) of both the blood connective tissue and the lymph connective tissue. Hence, we need to discuss the basic anatomy and characteristics of the lymph, just as we have done for the blood.

The word, lymph, exactly translates to mean ''clear spring water.'' Lymph is a usually clear, transparent, colorless fluid (like clear spring water). So it is pretty much equivalent to the blood plasma in most places of the body, except that its content of proteins is much lower. The lymph, then, is the clear, watery, liquid intercellular material of the lymphatic circulation.
