    Areolar tissue is a connective tissue which connects and surrounds many organs in the human body.

    The human body is just amazing, it has so many components put together and works perfectly. We have something called connective tissues which support, protect and give structure to other tissues and organs in the body.

    These connective tissues are divided into two types namely
    1. Loose Connective Tissues
    2. Dense Connective Tissues

    If we take loose connective tissues, then they are divided into three types namely
    1. Areolar
    2. Adipose
    3. Reticular

    Thus we get to Areolar tissues in this classification. Areolar tissue is present throughout the human body and supports and helps to protect organs, muscles, and many other tissues. These also play a role in binding the skin together.
