Get To Know Our Natural Immune System
As we age, it is natural that the number of immune cells in our body decreases. Sometimes it decreases to the extent that it compromises our body’s ability to fight off infections, viruses and tumors. This is the reason why as we age, we tend to get sick more frequently and it takes a much longer time to recover.
Our immune system is essential for our survival. Without a strong immune system, our body will be open to attacks from bacteria, viruses, parasites and more. It is our immune system that keeps us healthy and alive.
The natural immune system is a defense system which comprises of many biological structures and processes that protect you against bacterial, viral infections and both malignant (Cancer) and non-malignant cells.
Our immune system works by distinguishing our own healthy cells from foreign, dead and faulty cells, they are then identified, destroyed and cleared away.
The main elements of our immune system are the Natural Killer (NK) Cells, T Cells and B Cells. These 3-types of cells are the body’s crucial First Line of Defence against both internal and external biological threats.
