What Is The Immune System?
The immune system is a complex organ system in the body comprised of white blood cells, skin, mucus and bacteria. Its central role is to seek, recruit, attack and destroy foreign invaders, such as bacteria and viruses that enter the body.
How to Support Your Immune System
The immune system is a system, not a single entity. For it to function well, it requires balance and harmony. Researchers are still exploring the effects of diet, exercise, age, psychological stress, and other factors on the immune response. A healthy lifestyle is the single best step you can take toward naturally keeping your immune system strong and healthy. Every system in your body, including the immune system, functions better when following balanced and healthy strategies such as these:
●Eating a whole food diet with plenty of fruit and veg
●Maintaining a healthy weight
●Getting enough sleep
●Drinking alcohol in moderation
Diet & Your Immune System
There is evidence that various micronutrient deficiencies (think vitamins and minerals) could alter immune responses. However, the impact of these immune system changes on health is less clear. If you suspect you have micronutrient deficiencies, eat a varied diet with ample amounts of fruit and vegetables or support yourself with a good quality multivitamin.
