We continuously expose ourselves to disease causing pathogens, hence the need to ensure that the immune system – the collective interactive functionality of body organs and leucocytes to fight disease causing micro-organisms – is always on check. How the system works is that it detects foreign organisms that are not beneficial to the body’s health and neutralizes them together with any cells that may have been affected.
a balanced mix of minerals, vitamins and immune boosters taken periodically in addition to one’s balanced diet guarantees the immune system stability and efficiency during exposure to harmful pathogens.
The most natural form of vitamins is citrus fruits. For instance, consuming an orange, tangerine even lemons improve your health by anti-oxidizing your organs as well as provision of anti-inflammatory properties to crucial organs along the respiratory system.
Having enough vitamins in your immune system guards your body from manifesting symptoms of respiratory illnesses like influenza and helping mitigate the effects of long-term illnesses like Bronchitis, Asthma and Tuberculosis.
Fruits rich in vitamins include guava, grapefruit, red pepper, mango and parsley.

You may have seen the β-Carotene label on some food products such as food color, or even medicine. This is the organic brick-red pigment usually present in plants and fruits. This is a very important pro-vitamin that is responsible for the anti-oxidization of the adipose tissue –the tissue responsible for fat storage in the skin. It functions by quenching unbounded excess oxygen molecules known as singlet oxygen present in body cells. Singlet oxygen is responsible for induction of the body’s healing mechanisms, ensuring the immune and nervous system work at optimal levels.
Some rich sources of Beta-Carotene include kale, spinach, sweet potatoes, carrots and pumpkin. You may want to consider adding this to your daily diet.
These are live bacteria that are beneficial to the body’s functionality. The human body houses both “good” and “bad” bacteria, and while many may think that all bacteria are bad, we sometimes get rid of bacteria (consciously through prescribed medication) creating a deficiency resulting in different health risks. The primary role of probiotics in the body is to aid in digestion by controlling gut movement facilitating efficient transportation of food through different points of digestive processes.
Naturally, probiotics are sourced from the foods we consume and yoghurt.
The Health Emergency Highlights #76 by the World Health Organization (WHO)2018, states that despite researchers having not specified which supplements treat which conditions, probiotics have been used in treatment of some diseases such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Infectious diarrhea and Diarrhea resulting from prescribed medications.
In general, these supplements are rarely reported to have any negative side effects. However, one must not take probiotics if suffering from immune system problems without a doctor’s prescription.
- Reduction of alcohol intake
Society today has made alcoholic beverages an essential part of different social scenarios. Alcohol contains intoxicating properties that are detrimental effects on the nervous, cardiovascular and digestive systems. These properties dampen the body’s ability to fight off infection and disease. According to the World Health Organization, the risks increase largely in a dose-dependent manner with the volume of alcohol consumed and with frequency of drinking, and exponentially with the amount consumed on a single occasion. So, if you are reading this as you finish your first drink, lets call it a day, shall we?
