Supplements that Support Your Immune System
Your immune system protects you from harmful invaders and pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. It detects and neutralizes pathogens to prevent them from negatively affecting your health.
The immune system can be roughly divided into two components: innate and acquired. The innate immune system consists of the physical barrier (such as your skin) and immune cells that detect a broad range of pathogens.
The innate immune system is often sufficient to protect you from getting sick. But sometimes, the pathogens manage to get past it.
A weak or weakened immune system makes you more susceptible to infections, and many factors can cause it. It can be supported by good sleep, regular exercise, stress management, food, and more. Many essential nutrients, such as vitamins, also support the immune system.
