The immune system is responsible for protecting your body from environmental threats. To do so, the immune system uses a variety of cells, tissues, and organs, many of which are shared by other body systems. The immune system’s first line of defense is your skin. It acts as a barrier that keeps invaders out. Mucous membranes in your nose, mouth, and throat also protect your body from invaders by trapping potential threats and keeping them from invading the body.
When environmental threats get past these defenses, white blood cells kick into action. White blood cells find invaders, tag them as harmful, and destroy them. But that’s not all—they also remember the invaders so that if they try to attack you again, your body can stop them even faster. White blood cells are made and stored in a variety of places inside the body, such as the tonsils, thymus, lymph nodes, bone marrow, and spleen.
Keeping the immune system functioning properly depends on many things, including getting adequate sleep, regular exercise, and a balanced diet. Malnourishment and micronutrient deficiencies can result in altered immune responses and increased risk for health issues. Supplementing your diet with specific vitamins, minerals, and probiotics may build up and fortify the immune system.
