Immune Health Nutrition
Everything we consume on a daily basis, our nutritional intake, has a direct effect on the health of our Immune System as well as our general health.
Immune system is activated when body is “under attack” from toxins, bacteria, viruses, fungi and other pathogens. One of the ways our body uses immune system is as a defense mechanism to fight & eliminate these “foreign invaders” and disease. Nutrition plays a key part in ensuring our Immune System is strong and able to fight these foreign invaders.
