What is the circulatory system?

Circulatory system

Your circulatory system is made up of three parts: the heart, blood vessels and the blood itself.

Your heart keeps all the blood in your circulatory system flowing. The blood travels through a network of blood vessels to everywhere in your body. It carries useful materials like oxygen, water and nutrients and removes waste products like carbon dioxide.
