The Importance of Immunity 

The Importance of Immunity

The immune system is a complex network that involves organs, cells, and proteins. If your immune system is running smoothly, you don’t notice it’s there. Without it, we would have no way to fight outside invaders from producing changes in our body. It’s our body’s on and off switch for protecting against new or unknown substances.  When your body is exposed to foreign substances, the immune system jumps into action to recognize and get rid of them. How quickly our body responds is dependent on how robust our immune system is. 

DHA & EPA’s Influence on the Immune System

DHA & EPA’s Influence on the Immune System

The immune system is made of different cell types that move through the bloodstream around the body. Research shows that EPA and DHA boost the immune system by supporting the functioning of immune cells, like white blood cells (also known as B cells). EPA and DHA are also important components of our cell membranes' and can influence and regulate the membrane's ability to receive nutrients and remove waste.  This keeps our cells functioning optimally and able to react quickly when needed.
