The immune system helps to protect us from harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi. It also helps to repair damaged tissue. Poor diet, alcohol, caffeine and cigarettes can all add up and decrease the effectiveness of the immune system. Once your immune system has been compromised your body cannot properly defend or repair itself, becoming prone to fatigue, illness and infections. The immune system defence cells are mainly produced by the spleen and thyroid helping to create a barrier against illness and infections called free radicals. Free radicals are produced in high numbers when the body is exposed to poor nutrition. Some vitamins and minerals can help to protect the body against free radicals.
