So you can strengthen your immune system

The immune system is the biological defence system against pathogens

It protects you from infections and improves your overall quality of life. The immune system includes the bone marrow, spleen, thymus, lymph nodes, tonsils and the lymphatic tissue in the intestine. The hormone system and the nervous system are also involved in the immune defence.

The immune system is therefore a complex system of different organs, cell types and molecules. It is also quite sensitive and therefore susceptible to stress, mental strain, unbalanced nutrition and hormone fluctuations. BIOMES tells you how your immune system works and how you can strengthen your immune system sustainably with simple means.

The immune system: a three-stage complex

The complex body defense system can be divided into three levels:

1

Stage 1 – anatomical barriers

The anatomical barriers are the skin, mucous membranes, nasal hairs, the cilia on the bronchial mucosa and gastric acid.
2

Stage 2 – natural defence

The "non-specific defence" attacks germs and other foreign bodies that have overcome the anatomical barriers. They are absorbed and broken down by the body's own scavenger cells.
3

Stage 3 – intelligent defence

The "specific defence" targets individual, specific pathogens. The organism learns them in the course of life through direct contact with certain pathogens. Immune cells, above all lymphocytes (white blood cells), are significantly involved in this form of specific defence.

How do I strengthen my immune system?

You can do a lot to support and strengthen your immune system. The basis is simple: a healthy diet, sufficient exercise and sleep, stress reduction and the renunciation of luxury foods contribute significantly to the sustainable development of the immune system. And this is how it works:

Balanced nutrition

A balanced diet is the basis of a strong immune system. Especially vitamins A, C, E and vegetable protein are important for the immune system.

Vitamin A

... is essential for the proper functioning of the anatomical barrier: it keeps the mucous membranes moist and thus supports their defensive capacity. Red and green vegetables like tomatoes, carrots or spinach contain a lot of beta-carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A.

Vitamin C

... acts as a radical scavenger and immune booster, which makes the white blood cells work more effectively. Lemons, grapefruits, broccoli and peppers are rich in vitamin C.

Vitamin E

... promotes the formation of defense cells. It is found in sunflower and olive oil, almonds and walnuts.

Vegetable protein

... is used for the formation of antibodies in the blood: Lentils, beans and peas, for example, are high in protein.

80 percent of all defence cells are at home in the intestine - an intact intestinal flora is therefore important for strengthening the immune system. With a fibre-rich diet you can effectively support your useful intestinal bacteria. Fibre-rich foods are wholemeal products, legumes, raw fruit and vegetables.

A strong intestine helps a strong immune system

More than 100 trillion bacteria live in your intestine: They produce vital enzymes, support the absorption of nutrients and neutralize pollutants and germs that you take in with your food

If you want to strengthen your immune system, it is therefore worthwhile to build up and maintain your intestinal flora. A intestinal cleansing or the additional intake of special probiotic food supplements such as the products of BIOM.uniq can support you in this.
However, you should first get a thorough overview of the state and composition of your intestinal flora. This can be done quite easily with the intestinal analysis of BIOMES. The test INTEST.pro, based on the state-of-the-art biotechnological analysis methods , offers you detailed insights into your vitamin synthesis, immune strength, possible intolerances and the general distribution of bacteria in your intestine after evaluating a sample of your stool.
