Nutritional Immunology focuses on the delicate balance between nutrition and our ability to maintain optimal health. When you eat properly, rest well, exercise regularly, and stay positive, your immune system can function more effectively. When you deprive your body of these things, you weaken your immune system and become more susceptible to illness.
Nutritional Immunology is based on the principle that eating healthy foods containing key micronutrients will naturally fortify your immune system, keeping you healthy and helping to defend against sickness. The key micronutrients that Nutritional Immunology emphasizes are antioxidants, phytochemicals, and polysaccharides.
