The most important function of the immune system is its defensive role in the human body. The immune system has an inherent ability to detect and challenge foreign substances and organisms within the body, acting as the crucial first line of defense.
The immune system plays a role in eliminating harmful organisms and substances by recognizing, destroying and finally removing various types of foreign particles and malignant growths like cancers wherever it detects them in the human system.
It is, therefore, a totally independent and invisible shield, working unnoticed in our bodies and bringing attention to itself only when we get sick; we are otherwise unaware of its existence. But it must be mentioned here that the onset of an illness is by itself, not an indication of immune system impairment or weakness, it can also be due to the effects of recurring and lasting infections in the body.
Permanent and constant fatigue in the body, the presence of swelling in the glands, the occurrence of colds and sore throats in a person are the more specific signs of a weakened immune system.
While the organization and function of the immune system are well defined and complex, its impairment can often be brought about quite easily and quickly by a variety of simple factors and circumstances in the body.
These factors can very easily weaken it and expose the individual to a plethora of debilitating conditions. Some of the very usual and easily identifiable underlying causes are the presence of excessive physical and or emotional stress in the person; this also includes depression, chronic or otherwise.
Recovery from illness if furthered hampered by the presence in the body of a chronic or lingering illness, especially due to severe conditions, and physical trauma from surgery, all these factors can leave the resources of the immune system depleted and it may find it difficult to cope. This necessarily is not conducive to a healthy and quick convalescence.
The normal functioning and operation of the immune system can also be severely hampered by the regular intake of a diet deficient in nutrients and inadequate in important compounds.
The greatest long term harm is often dealt with the body by the regular intake of empty calories, these low caloric compounds are abundant in many processed foods and sweets; such a diet, needless to say, is poor in nutritional value.
The other important contributing factors are conditions such as obesity in people, a generally poor physical condition or fitness level and prolonged periods of inactivity or sedentary habits. If used over a lengthy period of time, certain compounds found in drugs and common medications, especially cortisone and the antibiotics, have a very negative effect on immune system performance and viability.
Toxic compounds such as heavy metals and other harmful substances such as alcohol, also tend to affect the immune system in a negative way.
Genetic and individual traits seem to play a role in the health of a person’s immune system, commonly those with a weak constitution seem to need to take greater care to maintain a healthy and viable immune system.
The risks of infections and allergies occurring in a person are increased when there is an excess of sugars in the diet, this substance also hampers the immune system function. This can be seen in cases where there is excessive consumption of sugar, the physical manifestation being an impairment in the shape, the activity and the number of white blood cells which are the workhorses of the immune system.
It can be said that, as a singular factor or substance that has a very negative impact on immune system functioning, sugar has not been given the attention it deserves.
It has been shown in a scientific study that the mere consumption of 3.5 oz. of the simple carbohydrate that constitutes the majority of simple sugars like sucrose found in common sugar, glucose, and the fruit sugar fructose has a deleterious impact on WBC (white blood corpuscles).
This simple carbohydrate which is also abundant in foodstuffs like honey and orange juice, had a major and negative impact on the white blood cells, impairing their ability to engulf and eliminate bacteria in the body. Complex and starchy carbohydrates had no such effect in the same doses.
This study is further verified by another one in which it was found that the consumption of 75 grams of glucose depressed the white blood cells. These, unfortunately, happened to be the ones that manufacture antibodies and fight infection.

Vitamin C Sustained Release – 100 Tablets
As a potent water-soluble antioxidant, vitamin C contributes to cell protection from free-radical damage.
Vitamin C plays a role in maintaining connective tissue and is an integral part of collagen, the “cellular cement” that holds our cells together. It helps maintain healthy teeth, gums, and skin.
Lifestyle demands and cigarette smoking rob the body of this precious vitamin. People who sustain regular minor physical challenges (athletes, some construction and industrial workers) may need extra vitamin C. A water-soluble antioxidant, that in fact, we all may need greater quantities daily as our environment continues to become more toxic.
