The main components of the immune system are B cells, T cells and macrophages.

B cells are made in the bone marrow), T cells (made in the thymus and include Natural Killer cells that destroy cancer cells) and macrophages literally gobble up bacteria, cancerous and other infected cells.

The immune system normally weakens as you get older – partly because the thymus atrophies over time. This immune weakening causes respiratory and other illnesses to become more common and longer to clear up, and cancer rates to increase. A reduced immune response also means vaccinations become less effective1.

Harvard Health confirm that micronutrient deficiency is a factor in immune response decline2. Nutrients that are key to a healthy immune system include zinc, selenium, iron, copper, folic acid, and vitamins A, B6, C, D3 and E.

We also know that phyto-nutrients like green tea, bilberry and green tea extract4 and curcumin3 positively support the immune system, as does Omega 3 indirectly.

There is now a wealth of data showing the importance of a healthy microbiome – gut - in immune function. Which is why the phyto-nutrients in NutriShield are important because the ‘good’ bacteria . that support and create certain immune cells rely on them.
