UNDERSTANDING OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
The immune system supports your health fighting off germs, microbes or toxins (poisons) as well as destroying old or damaged cells.
Although we don’t notice it, our immune system is always on looking for foreign invaders (microbes) such as bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi and when they find them, they launch an immune attack to keep us protected.
One of its main tasks is to deal with cancer cells and cell products that otherwise would result in disease or disorders. It also has memory, learning from the disease we get so we don’t have them twice.
It is an essential part of our organism because without a healthy immune system our body would be vulnerable to attack from external damages.
An active lifestyle and good sleeping habits can contribute to maintain a healthy immune system. As well as a balanced diet with essential nutrients to function at its best.
