Daily nutrition affects your immunity.
Your immune system is functioning at all times and can be divided into two general categories namely: the innate (natural) and adaptive (specific/acquired) immune system. Adaptive immunity becomes increasingly active during infections (pathogens).
This leads to an increased need for nutrients / energy substrates.
Deficiencies of the nutrients that play an essential role in immunity should therefore be avoided and balanced nutritional intake is important.
