Immune System

How to keep your immune system healthy

Your immune system helps your body to protect itself against illness and infection.

It defends you against a wide range of common viruses and bugs that cause tummy trouble, colds and flu, as well as controlling your body’s response to more serious health conditions.

Keeping your immune system in tip top condition plays a vital role in ensuring overall good health and wellbeing.

Diet, exercise, getting plenty of sleep and avoiding stress can all help strengthen your immune system and improve your health and happiness.

Why is the immune system important?

Your immune system is your body’s first line of defence against illness and disease. It protects the body from infections caused by bacteria and viruses, while also helping to remove harmful toxins from your system and breaking down malignant cells.

It is also responsible for controlling the body’s response to harmless triggers.
If your immune system functions as it should, it will help you to ward off illness and recover quickly when you do fall poorly.

However, when the immune system fails, it can lead to a range of more serious health complications, including allergic reactions, immunodeficiencies and autoimmune disorders.

Because around 70% of the immune system is located within your body’s intestinal tract, the development of a healthy immune system is reliant on good gut health and the balance of healthy bacteria in your digestive system.
