Our immune system is the body’s control centre against attack from outside sources. When an invader is detected our immune system sends out “soldiers” from one of its dedicated armies of defenders, with each unit specialised against a certain threat, whether it be bacteria, viral, fungal, toxic, etc, in order to neutralise the invader. Therefore it’s imperative that our immune system is working to its optimum.
In the world right now, with lockdowns, home shielding, and keeping within our own small family “bubbles”, the lack of exposure to everyday regular germs which our bodies are usually able to overcome with ease, could overwhelm us when we are reintroduced to them all at once on a regular basis. So how can we boost our immune system to ensure that it is in tip-top condition to protect us? Nature has gifted us with some fantastic products which we can take as a daily tonic to boost our immunity, whilst also imparting other wonderful health benefits:
