There are different ways to avoid the appearance of diseases, and one of them is the strengthening of the immune system since it is our defense system against microorganisms such as fungi, bacteria, and viruses that cause diseases, such as cancer.

The proper functioning of the immune system depends a lot on a good diet that helps to strengthen it. There are some situations that cause the immune system to be affected, for example, stress and anxiety, both cause a failure of the immune system. Moreover, some diseases appear, sometimes serious because the body is unable to fight microorganisms.

There are ways to know that the immune system is not working well, the appearance of infections, fevers, dry eyes, chronic tiredness, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, spots on the skin, and hair loss. We can also know that the immune system is working badly through diagnostic blood tests, these tests must be recommended by a specialist.

There are habits that are essential when it comes to strengthening our immune system, as well as others that affect the immune system even more. In addition, the lack of physical activity, alcohol consumption, cigarette use, and unhealthy eating are some of these bad habits.

Likewise, there are special nutrients that help maintain an optimal immune system such as copper, iron, selenium, zinc, magnesium, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin D, and vitamin A.

There are also foods that can help strengthen the immune system, for example: include herbs in the daily diet, natural seasonings such as garlic, onion, turmeric, oregano, kion, foods rich in the vitamins mentioned above, foods rich in fiber since this helps to care for and strengthen the bacterial flora, take probiotics and prebiotics, avoid the consumption of sugar, processed foods, as well as fried foods.
