Vitamins And Supplements For Resilient Health.
The immune system is your body’s main defense mechanism. Think of it as a rapid-response team of cells that identify the presence of a foreign molecule and respond in stages to remove the molecule. A healthy system is key to your overall well-being.
What is the Immune System?
How Does the Immune System Work?
Physical barriers, such as the skin and mucous membranes that line openings to the body, protect us from a majority of foreign molecules. The system is triggered when foreign molecules evade those physical barriers. There are two parts of the immune system; the innate immune system, which provides an immediate response to molecules that have breached the physical barriers, and the adaptive immune system, which is activated by the first response.

The Innate Immune System
Molecules that successfully enter your body immediately trigger the innate system. Your body is able to identify that these molecules do not belong to you, and this causes a chemical reaction wherein immune cells rush to destroy and remove of the foreign molecule. This is called the body’s inflammatory response, and may be physically recognizable by redness, swelling, or heat.
The inflammatory response is, well, complemented, by the complementary system. The complement system is a cascade of proteins that bind to the surface of foreign molecules and support the body’s normal ability to remove these the foreign molecules.
The next line of defense within the innate system is the activation of leukocytes, or white blood cells. There are several distinct types of white blood cells, but they all work together to identify foreign molecules and eliminate them either through direct contact, or by engulfing them.
The adaptive response recognizes each foreign molecule and tailors its response specifically to those molecules, and to cells that are impacted by those molecules. Even more interesting is that the adaptive system “remembers” these specific responses, so that your body can respond faster the next time you encounter the same foreign molecule.
The cells of the adaptive immune system are called lymphocytes, and they’re derived from stem cells in the bone marrow. The two major types of lymphocytes are B cells and T cells. B cells essentially act to recognize specific foreign molecules and help T cells respond appropriately.
