What Does the Immune System Do?

Your immune system consists of several organs and cells that work together to recognise and destroy foreign invaders. These invaders can be bacteria, viruses, fungi, and toxins. The immune system can be split into two branches - innate and acquired immunity. You are born with your innate immune system (it’s inherited from your parents). However. your acquired immune system develops over the course of your life as you experience exposure to new pathogens. The innate immune system consists of multiple things. It includes the skin, the cornea of your eyes, and the mucous membranes. These are what line our respiratory, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary tracts. Each of these creates physical barriers to harmful pathogens and cells. If you’re immune cells spot any foreign invaders, white blood cells called phagocytes will capture and destroy them. The acquired immune system forms over your lifetime. It builds every time you get exposure to more and more pathogens. When you get an infection by a particular bacteria or virus, your immune system produces proteins known as antibodies. These exist to fight against these specific pathogens. These antibodies remain in your body for the rest of your life. And of course, you may get exposure to the same pathogen again in the future. When you do, your immune response will be much quicker and more efficient at getting rid of the infection.

How Do Supplements Boost Your Immune System?

The immune system can make good use of certain vitamins and minerals. Many can help the immune system to identify and kill potentially harmful pathogens in your body. You’ve probably heard that you should try and have lots of vitamin C when you’re ill, for example. But, there are many more micronutrients that can give your immune system a boost. Supplements can enhance your immunity by providing your body with extra vitamins and minerals. They are particularly helpful if you follow a restrictive diet. Or if you have a health condition that reduces your body’s ability to absorb nutrients from food. Probiotic supplements may be beneficial to boost your gut health and balance the bacterial species in your colon. Around 70% of your immune system resides in your gut. Therefore, keeping a healthy microbiota in your digestive tract is essential to building strong immunity. There’s a lot of research showing how probiotics can support your digestive system by enabling the beneficial bacteria in your colon to thrive. Not only does this enhance your immune system but it can also decrease bloating, excess gas, and other digestive issues. The Potion London Multibiotic  contains 5 billion beneficial bacteria and selected plant fibres that can help to balance your gut microbiome and boost your digestive health. Supplements that contain omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA, may also enhance immunity by reducing the levels of inflammation in the body. Our vegan omega-3 capsules and multivitamin gummies provide you with all the omega-3s you need to maximise your immune function.

Which Vitamins Can Boost Your Immune System?

If you’re searching for the perfect vitamin supplements to support your immune cells, look out for these vitamins and minerals. All of these vitamins are present in our Vegums Sugar-Free Multivitamin Gummies and Nutriburst Health and Vitality Gummies.
  • Vitamin A - you can get a precursor of vitamin A called provitamin A, as well as the active form. It’s an essential vitamin to support your overall health, including your immune health.
  • Vitamin C - a powerful antioxidant that accumulates in your white blood cells, helping them to function optimally. It can also reduce oxidative stress in your cells to promote healthy growth and development.
  • Vitamin D - it's one of the most important vitamins for a strong and healthy immune system. The skin can synthesise vitamin D when it receives sunlight. In addition, you can top up your natural vitamin D levels through your diet. For example, our Solgar Vitamin D3 Capsules.
  • Vitamin E - another powerful antioxidant that helps you to fight off infections. It is a vital component of almost 200 biochemical reactions in your cells.
  • Iron - a mineral that the body needs for immune cell proliferation and maturation.
  • Selenium - a powerful mineral that can boost the immune system to help fight against infection.
  • Zinc - this mineral helps to produce and grow new immune cells. It also acts as a co-factor (helper) in a range of different biochemical reactions in the body.
