Understanding the Immune System
Your immune system is a network of cells and organs that surveys your body for foreign substances, then responds to neutralize them as needed. Healthy immune function includes both physical barriers and specialized cell activity. In general, the immune system is on the job to keep the body in a state of wellness… and it works around the clock!
A healthy immune system is one that is neither over-stimulated nor under-stimulated. Various factors can contribute to immune imbalance: stress, lack of sleep, inadequate fruit and vegetable consumption, lack of exercise, or excessive exercise. So on the other hand, a healthy lifestyle can help your immune system stay balanced—think stress management, adequate restful sleep, a varied diet that includes plenty of produce, and regular moderate exercise.
