It is the set of natural defenses that the body puts in place against the pathogens responsible for infections and the most common diseases.
Sometimes it happens that our defenses can fail or be weakened, especially in the presence of stress or seasonal changes.
To counteract the lowering of the immune defenses, it is recommended to consume a large amount of fruit and vegetables, associated with the intake of prebiotics and live lactic ferments (probiotics).
Other good habits that can help the immune system are: drinking plenty of water and exercising regularly.
Nature offers us its help: there are in fact several plants that can help strengthen the immune defenses, such as Echinacea, Mint, Eucalyptus, Mountain pine and Propolis , known to favor the functionality of the upper respiratory tract.
Others, such as the Perilla from whose seeds the oil is extracted, is a natural source of Omega 3-6-9.
Grapefruit or currant plant extracts are useful not only to strengthen the immune system but also to operate a draining action; moreover, currant is also useful for counteracting generalized and local inflammatory processes and allergic manifestations.
