Immune System – what’s that?

Our immune system is so important to our everyday health and well-being and, given the times we’re currently living in, is more vital than ever. I like to think of our immune system as our body’s security or defence system. and there are things we can do to help support and maintain that system.

Your immune system recognises every cell that makes up your body. If it finds anything it doesn’t recognise, it attacks it. Sometimes it can get this wrong and attack harmless pollen particles (causing hay fever) or donated blood or organs. However, in general your immune system will be pretty good at this. You can find out more about the immune system here.

How can we support it

 

A healthy Lifestyle

A healthy lifestyle is our first line of defence. The means eating a balanced diet and getting regular exercise. A varied diet will ensure you are getting all the vitamins and minerals your body needs in order to stay healthy. The article below explains more about this and includes suggestions of supplements that could support and promote healthy life style.

Getting regular exercise is important for your immune system because it increases the activity of helpful immune cells in your body. Improving your circulation and getting your heart beating more sends these cells out to patrol the body, looking for potential problems. Whilst both aerobic and strength exercises are important for general wellbeing, which is also important for your immune system, it’s the aerobic activity that will really get those immune cells moving about. Why not read a previous blog on my favourite workouts for ideas.

Good gut bacteria

Cultivating the good bacteria in your gut is essential to your overall health and wellbeing, but how does this relate to the immune system? They make it difficult for  disease-causing bugs to find anywhere to establish themselves in our gut. They secrete toxic proteins that kill off potential infections, and, finally, they regulate the signals sent to or defence sytem.

One way to complement your gut bacteria is to take Forever Active Pro-B. It’s the perfect high-quality friendly bacteria supplement to assist with your diet and lifestyle goals.

Now here is the article.

Help support your body’s defence system

Your immune system is important. It recognises every cell of your body and helps to fight infection and illness. Your immune system can be divided up into two parts: innate response and acquired response. The innate response is the part that decides whether something is friend or foe, and if it decides on foe, it tries to flush out the invader.

Maintaining a healthy immune system is really important in keeping us all healthy, and the best method for supporting it is through regular exercise and eating a healthy diet to ensure your body is getting all the vitamins and minerals it needs. Certain vitamins and minerals contribute to the normal function of the immune system, including copper, folate, iron, selenium, vitamin A, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin D and zinc. Some will be more helpful here than others, but that’s why a balanced diet is the best option here, as you’ll get a bit of everything.

Nutritional Supplements

Taking vitamin C daily has long been associated with good health, but the human body doesn’t naturally store the vitamin meaning it must be consumed via food, drink and supplements. Forever’s Absorbent-C is bonded with oat bran, a highly soluble fibre, for gradual absorption, and provides 100% of the UK’s RDA of vitamin C, which contributes to the normal function of the immune system. Forever Immublend also helps to support a healthy lifestyle, and is high in vitamins C, D and zinc; which all contribute to the normal function of the immune system.
