If you find yourself taking more than your fair share of sick days, or you are constantly fighting fatigue and stress, your immune system may need a boost. Even in a healthy state, our bodies are continually fighting bacteria, viruses, and illnesses. A strong immune system will keep our bodies healthy and fit as well as fight the signs of aging. Not only does our physical health benefit from a strong immune system, but our mental health does too. A healthy immune system improves cognitive function which has an overall positive effect on our mood and memory. When we are sick, tired and stressed, these are signs that our immune system has been compromised, and needs attention.
How Does The Immune System Work?
Our immune system is a ‘reactive system’ of white blood cells constantly on alert to keep invaders out. When our immune system is weakened, an invader can get through causing us to fall ill.
