5 lifestyle Changes Will Strong your Immune System

The human immune system consists of organs, cells, tissues, and proteins. Together, they fight against foreign particle or pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, and any other species that causes disease or infection. When our immune system receives a signal about the presence of a pathogen, it triggers an immune response. The immune system releases antibodies, which attach to antigens on the pathogens and kill them. Our immune system is like a survival kit for us. A person with a strong immune system is said to be a healthy individual.

Taking multivitamins and mineral supplements might also help in boosting your immunity.
