Support Your Immune System
The immune system is made up of many components, including the spleen, thymus, lymph nodes, and lymphatic tissue in the gut. By supporting the immune system each day, all year round, the body will be properly equipped to face the challenges of everyday life. Specific nutrition will allow the immune system to function at an optimal level. Deficiencies in zinc, selenium, iron, copper, folic acid, and vitamins A, B6, C, and E can alter immune responses. The body will have the proper tools, such as natural killer cells, B cells, macrophage cells, immune effector cells, and secretory immunoglobulin A and E to fight off any sickness, infection, or disease.
Ways to strengthen your immune system
Your first line of defense is to choose a healthy lifestyle. Following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward naturally keeping your immune system strong and healthy. Every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when protected from environmental assaults and bolstered by these healthy-living strategies:
Gut Health is Key
A large part of the body’s immune system is housed in the gut. It is the first line of defense against any immune challenges that arise. Probiotics in the gut directly influence cells, alerting and interacting with the chemical structures in the gut tissue. Some strains of probiotics have been shown to release cytokines, small proteins which play an integral role in cell signaling, and overall stability of the immune system. Probiotics play an irreplaceable role in immunity, including immunoglobulin, and antibody response.
