What Is Immunity?

Immunity is simply the ability of a living thing to resist harmful micro organisms. In humans, this is the ability to ward off disease and infections.

Immunity is a complex biological system, where the organism can recognise what belongs to it and what doesn't. If something enters the organism that does not belong to it, the immune system of the organism will act to remove the foreign entity.

The Immune System

You immune system is made up of various cells, tissues and organs. These each have a special role and work together to keep you free from infection.

What Causes Weakened Immunity?

Your immunity can be affected by many influences. Your age, lifestyle and even the immune system you were born with affects how strong or weak your immunity is. However, other factors are known to weaken the immune system:

  • Diesease;
  • Poor nutrition;
  • Smoking;
  • Certain medications;
  • Alcohol.

How To Boost The Immune System

If you find yourself always getting a cold, have high-stress levels, are constantly tired, have frequent tummy troubles, or a combination, this can show that you may have a weakened immune system. Luckily, there are simple ways that you can give your immune system a boost naturally:

  • Get plenty of sleep (most adults need between 7 and 9 hours a night)
  • Eat a healthy diet;
  • Exercise regularly;
  • Reduce stress (try mindfulness or meditation);
  • Take immune boosting supplements
