Your immune system is similar to a savings account; making regular investments in advance, will give you the security for you to fall back on in the long term. While we may experience more common 'lows' in our immunity, making nutrient investments all year around supports us in the more challenging times or months. The immune system itself requires targeted support but also neighbouring organs and systems that affect the operation of immune system should always be considered. Invest in good sleep, supporting the health of the gut and energy systems in the body. Specific nutrients are key but also herbs, medicinal mushrooms and botanicals play a special role in helping us to build a fortress of protection. If we do feel unwell - then the focus is a speedier recovery back to good health. The health of our immune system also affects how we age not only on the outside, but also on the inside.
