The winter season is here meaning cold season is in full force. For most of us, that means our immune systems are working in overdrive to fight against the invasion of germs. Our immune systems do a remarkable job of defending us against disease-causing microorganisms. But sometimes, a germ invades and makes us sick. Resulting in missed days of work, meetings and unfortunately holiday events with family and friends.
The immune system is a system, not a single entity. To function well, it requires balance; not too much or too little of specific foods or nutrients. There is evidence that various micronutrient deficiencies can alter immune responses.
