How the immune system functions
The immune system comprises of a network of specialized cells, organs and tissues that defend the body from invading microbes. The human body provides an ideal environment for the proliferation of microbes. The immune system recognizes the foreign invaders in the body and directs specialized immune cells to target the foreign substances and kill them without harming the healthy cells.
A substance that triggers immune response is known as an antigen. Microbes such as viruses are common antigens. Immune response can even be triggered when a tissue from another person is implanted in the body. Even harmless foreign bodies such as pollens might trigger immune response, leading to allergies. Abnormal immune response might cause the immune system to target specific tissues in the body, leading to autoimmune diseases.
Lymphoid organs, located throughout the body, houses white blood cells known as lymphocytes. The lymphocytes are produced in the bone marrow. The lymphocyte that the immune system employs for killing the foreign bodies in the body are known as T lymphocytes or simply T cells. The antibodies that help in fighting infections are produced by B-lymphocytes or the B cells. While the B cells target specific antigens, the T cells directly attacks infected or malignant cells. A well-coordinated immune response is ensured by the Th cells or the helper T cells that communicate with the immune cells. The immune cells secrete proteins, known as cytokines that act as chemical messengers to enable the proper functioning of the immune system.
Along with the small T and B cells, the larger white blood cells known as phagocytes digests the worn out cells and foreign particles to eliminate them from the body. Granulocytes, such as neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils, are immune cells that contain chemicals for destroying the microbes. Mast cells are another type of immune cells that are present on the linings of the respiratory tract and intestines.
The lymphocytes encounter and combat the antigens in the lymph nodes. The spleen is another prominent site where the immune cells gather and fight antigens.
A weak immune system not only increases the risk of infections, but it can also lead to fatal diseases such as cancer. The cancer cells tend to grow and multiply by defeating the body’s immune system.
How to boost immunity naturally
You can avoid those bothersome cold, cough and flu or reduce the intensity of the infections by building a strong immune system. To enhance the functions of the components of the immune system, you should provide them the right nourishment. Studies suggest that vitamins A, B6, C, D and E and minerals such as zinc, selenium, and copper might help to activate the immune cells.
Retinoic acid, the metabolite of vitamin A, improves mucosal immunity. It plays an important role in regulating development of macrophages, neutrophils, dendritic cells and lymphoid cells. (Kim CH. “Retinoid acid, immunity, and inflammation.” Vitam Horm. 2011; 86:83-101).
Vitamin D acts as an immunomodulator. Low levels of serum vitamin D might increase the risk of lung diseases. It reduces the risk of infectious diseases and inflammatory conditions by regulating the functions of lymphocytes, dendritic cells, monocytes and epithelial cells. (Herr C, Greulich T, Kocsulla RA, Meyer S, Zakharkina T, Branscheidt M, Eschmann R, Bals R. “The role of vitamin D in pulmonary disease: COPD, asthma, infection and cancer.” Respir Res. 2011 Mar 18;12:31). Hence, to strengthen the immune system, you might consider spending some minutes in the sun.
Low serum vitamin C deficiency increases the risk of infections. Studies suggest that vitamin C helps to improve the response of T cells. (Kennes B, Dumont I, Brohee D, Hubert C, Neve P. “Effect of vitamin C supplements on cell-medicated immunity in old people” Gerontology. 1983;29(5):305-10).
Vitamin E is the most important antioxidant in the human body. It is needed for sustaining the normal activities of the immune cells. Deficiency of this antioxidant vitamin adversely affects the functions of the T cells and B cells. Vitamin E protects the immune cells from oxidative damage. The antioxidant effect of the micronutrient might reduce the risk of cancers. (Pekmezci D. “Vitamin E and immunity.” Vitam Horm. 2011;86:179-215).
Vitamin B6 deficiency is frequently associated with immunodeficiency. This B vitamin helps to boost production of lymphocytes. (Bierwirth J, Ulbricht KU, Schmidt RE, Witte T. “Association of common variable immunodeficiency with vitamin B6 deficiency.” Eur J Clin Nutr. 2008 Mar;62(3):332-5).
The therapeutic function of zinc in reducing risk of infections has been demonstrated in several studies. It aids recovery from diarrhea, common cold, tuberculosis, acute lower respiratory tract infections, chronic hepatitis C and pneumonia.(Prasad AS. “Zinc: role in immunity, oxidative stress and chronic inflammation.” Curr Opin Clin Nutr Metab Care. 2009 Nov;12(6):646-52).
Selenium is needed for the synthesis of antioxidant enzymes. It plays an important role in regulating immune function. It might be beneficial for HIV positive or AIDS patients. Selenium might even reduce the risk of cancers. (Ryan-Harshman M, Aldoori W. “The relevance of selenium to immunity, cancer, and infectious/inflammatory diseases.” Can J Diet Pract Res. 2005 Summer;66(2):98-102).
