What is immunity?

Our immune system is like the defense force of the body, which protects it from external toxins, chemicals, bacteria, and viruses as well as fights back and protects us from any trouble that brews within. Immunity is the resistance power of your body that helps your body fight against numerous infections or pathogens.

 

Do you ever wonder why you are the first one to be affected by the slightest change in weather or food binge at the local chaat stall and most of your friends seem to be doing fine? Our immunity is not only a result of good genetics, but a lot depends on stress, nutrition, exercise, and medication. The immune system is like the defense force of the body, which protects it from external toxins, chemicals, bacteria, and viruses as well as fights back and protects us from any trouble that brews within. Even the most health conscious people fall ill. However, by fine tuning certain aspects of our lifestyle, we can strengthen the immunity and protect ourselves from premature aging and degenerative diseases. Low immunity makes us vulnerable to a host of health issues such as common cold and fever.
