The immune system comprises a number of biological structures and processes that help protect our bodies from disease. These diseases are generally caused by pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi.
White blood cells are a crucial part of our immune system and they patrol our bodies looking for these pathogens. Produced in numerous organs around the body, white blood cells are found in almost all human tissue. White blood cells will try to destroy any ’intruders′ they encounter. They are also responsible for producing antibodies, so that the body can attack the pathogens using a targeted defence mechanism. Once the pathogens are targeted, the white blood cells are able to eliminate them.
Each day, we produce between 25 and 100 billion white blood cells. In the case of illness, production levels may increase tenfold.
It takes around ten years for the immune system to reach maturity and function at its peak. This is one of the reasons why children are more prone to catching colds, etc., as their immune system is still being ’trained’.
The immune system has to be especially active in all areas where it is in contact with the outside world. This is especially important for the respiratory system. In situations in which the immune system is no longer functioning optimally, the body is more prone to developing an illness. Here, EPs® 7630 offers essential support.
