A strong and healthy immune system is one of the most important factors in our overall health. But what does our immune system actually do and why is it so important?
What is the immune system exactly?
Our immune system is made up of a complex network of cells and proteins that defends the body against infection. Our immune system keeps a record of every microbe it has ever defeated so it can recognise and destroy the microbe quickly if it enters the body again.
With some infections, such as the flu and the common cold, our immune system needs to fight them repeatedly because so many different viruses or strains of the same type of virus can cause these illnesses.
The main parts of the immune system
There are many different parts to the immune system and they all have slightly different roles. They include::
- white blood cells
- complement system
- lymphatic system
- bone marrow
These are the parts of the immune system that actively fight infection.
3 reasons we need a healthy immune system
Feeling fit, healthy & energised
A strong and robust immune system means we’ll feel fit, healthy and energised throughout our life. The immune system enables us to live the life we want and gives us both physical and mental strength each and every day. A poor immune system can leave us feeling weak, lethargic and unable to perform our day to day activities.
2. Healing & recovery time
Those with stronger immune systems tend to recover quicker from an accident or injury because their immunity stimulates the healing process. This could include anything minor such as a cut or sprain, to more serious issues such as operations. A strong immune system also enables us to recover more quickly from illnesses such as COVID or other infections. Which brings us to point number three…
3. Contracting fewer infections
We mentioned earlier that a robust immune system plays a significant role in fighting infections, so those with a healthy immune system will experience fewer infections and illnesses. This is because their body produces more white blood cells, proteins, and other chemicals to attack and destroy the disease-causing substances.
Ensuring you have a strong immune system
There are many ways to bolster your immune system. Eating a healthy and balanced diet, engaging in regular exercise, limiting alcohol consumption, quitting smoking, getting enough good quality sleep and reducing stress as much as possible are all steps you can take to improve your immune system.
However, we appreciate that some of these examples just aren’t possible for everyone. For those with stressful jobs, who work long hours, and are travelling frequently - it can really take a toll on the immune system. Plus, some people just naturally have low immunity. That’s why we’ve developed our vitamin IV infusion.
Our NAD+ Super Vitamin Immune Booster is packed full of critical vitamins, amino acids and essential minerals plus a full dose of the super coenzyme NAD+. The infusion utilises immune boosting ingredients to support your immune system and helps deter illness. This IV contains a powerful amino blend with the addition of three powerful B vitamins along with a strong dose of the body’s most powerful antioxidant, glutathione, added at the end of the intravenous therapy.
