Collection: Immune health

Our immune system is crucial for our health as it serves as the body's primary defense mechanism against infections, diseases, and foreign invaders. Its importance can be understood through several key functions and roles:

  1. Pathogen Protection: It identifies and neutralizes harmful microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites, preventing infections.

  2. Metabolic diseases Prevention: It detects and eliminates abnormal cells, including cancer cells, before they can cause harm.

  3. Inflammatory Response: It triggers inflammation to isolate and repair damaged tissue, aiding in healing and defense.

  4. Immunological Memory: It remembers past infections, allowing for faster and stronger responses to subsequent exposures, which is the basis for vaccination.

  5. Homeostasis Maintenance: It constantly monitors and removes dead or malfunctioning cells, maintaining internal balance.

  6. Adaptive Immunity: It provides tailored defenses against specific threats through specialized cells.

Without a functioning immune system, we would be highly susceptible to infections, diseases, and cancer.
