Your superhero without a cape!
If you think about it, the immune system in our body is really a superhero without a cape. It shields our body from various pathogens that may cause diseases or bring on other symptoms. In order to keep our immune system working fine, it’s important that we take care of a few things. The health of our immune system can be greatly impacted by a person’s emotional state, level of stress, lifestyle, dietary habits and nutritional status. Let’s understand how - Emotional State: Brain activity linking negative emotions to a lower immune response against disease has been revealed for the first time, claim researchers. Many previous studies have shown that emotions & stress can adversely affect the immune system. Staying positive & keeping your mental health in check can really keep your immunity strong & going. Level of Stress: In recent times, many events have caused a definite rise in levels of stress for most people throughout the globe. Higher levels of stress can adversely affect the immune system. When we’re stressed, the immune system’s ability to fight off antigens is considerably reduced. That is why we are more susceptible to infections. The stress hormone - corticosteroid - can suppress the effectiveness of the immune system, for example, it lowers the number of lymphocytes. Stress can also have an indirect effect on the immune system as a person may use unhealthy behavioural coping strategies to reduce stress, such as drinking & smoking. Lifestyle: COVID-19 is a global challenge to healthcare. It evidently questioned most of our lifestyle that greatly affects our immune systems. Obesity, additional chronic disease, and an unhealthy lifestyle interactively impair immune function and increase the risk of severe infectious disease. In adverse metabolic & endocrine conditions, the immune system is geared toward inflammation. Enhancing lifestyle & dietary habits can help improve your immunity. Nutritional Status: The immune system is dependent on good nutritional status for its optimal functioning. The immune function itself can provide a broad measure of nutritional deficiencies. For example, lymphocyte count & skin reactivity most often are used for this purpose. Of course, such tests are of little value in monitoring nutritional therapy. Several nutrients are especially important in the maintenance of immune function including protein, ascorbic acid & zinc.
