I recently had a question from someone wanting to know more about the spleen. So, in this quick video, I’m going to cover a little bit about what the spleen is and what it does. 

What is the spleen? The spleen is located underneath the right rib cage, underneath the diaphragm. It’s about 2.8-5.5 inches or 7-14 centimeters. 

What does the spleen do? 

• It recycles blood and iron (primary function)
• It acts as a blood reserve
• It enhances your immune system 
• It kills bacteria
