Nutraceuticals play prime role in boosting immunity

Living well and maintaining a healthy immune system in human life can sometimes be challenging. The immune system is the body’s defense against infectious organisms and¬†other invaders. The immune system is a network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to protect the body from infection. The human body provides an ideal¬†environment for many microbes, such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites, and the immune system prevents and limits their entry and growth to maintain optimal health.¬†Through a series of steps called the immune response, the immune system attacks organisms and substances that invade human body systems and cause disease. One of the¬†important cells involved in human body are white blood cells (WBC), also called leukocytes, which come in two basic types that combine to seek out and destroy diseasecausing
organisms or substances. The two basic types of leukocytes are: phagocytes, cells that chew up invading organisms and lymphocytes, cells that allow the body to remember and recognize previous invaders and help the body destroy them. These cells not only protect human body but also simultaneously they create memory of previous attack by germ cell or organism which is very essential for body so when again attack happened from same organism, body defense would generate antibody/protection in better manner than what it does before.

Human body immune system gets weakened through various reasons. The first is that immune response does not tend to be as effective during the colder months of fall and winter compared to warmer months. Secondly, chronic stress can cause almost all measures of immune system function to drop across the board. The third reason is that poor diet can compromise immune response. There are plenty of disorders especially skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis very common in Indian population. Dermatologists use mainly corticosteroids for treatment of these disorders which drug is responsible for reducing immunity level and above mentioned key protected cells. Certain other disorders and conditions like cancer, acquired immunodeficien
