How does the immune system influence disease prevention?

At every moment of the day, there are external agents (viruses, bacteria, fungi, etc.) that try to enter our body.

Our immune system is responsible for protecting us from these agents and if it is not capable of detecting and eliminating these pathogens in time, they will multiply, causing pathology.

There are many factors (both internal and external) that influence the state of the immune system and its ability to defend us against infections, such as lifestyle and diet. In addition, there are other causes such as stress, contact with other people, antibiotic therapy, etc… that weaken the immune system and cause it to be unable to protect us correctly against all the pathogens that surround us.

Therefore, keeping the immune system strong and in perfect condition is very important to avoid diseases.


How does the immune system protect us?

The immune system is made up of cells and proteins that are responsible for fighting and preventing infections. When our body detects a harmful substance, the immune system launches a quick and effective defense to protect us from it.

This defensive response can be of two types:

  • Innate immune response: Fast and nonspecific.
  • Acquired immune response: Specific. It develops throughout life and generates immunological memory.


When the immune system recognizes the external agent, the innate immunity acts quickly and attacks it, subsequently, the acquired immunity is activated to launch another much more specific attack depending on the type of pathogen. This second response generates memory, that is, if the pathogen re-enters the body, the immune system identifies it and eliminates it much more effectively.


Importance of strengthening the immune system

It is very important to keep in mind that the immune system is our body’s defense against infections. When our immune system is in good condition, it has a higher capacity to protect us from pathogens and launch an effective defense. However, when it is weakened, it does not have the ability to protect us in the same way, and therefore, we are more prone to diseases.
Some of the keys to keeping your immune system in good condition is eating a healthy diet, exercising moderately, avoiding stress, getting enough rest, avoiding tobacco and alcohol, and taking vitamins A, C, and E.
Remember that Plesinox3A is a food supplement made up of Polypodium leucotomos (EPL) extract, vitamin A, vitamin C and selenium. Vitamins A, C and selenium contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system. Vitamin C and selenium contribute to the protection of cells against oxidative damage. Vitamin A contributes to the normal maintenance of skin and mucous membranes.
And you, how do you help your defenses?
