immune system may not always function properly due to poor nutrition,
emotional or physical stress, environmental toxins, genetics, over
use of drugs, excessive alcohol consumption, smoking and lack of exercise.
Some common symptoms of a weak immune system may include: fatigue,
allergies, frequent recurring infections (for example from the cold
virus, herpes virus, parasites or candida), painful joints and muscles,
and skin conditions.
An unbalanced immune system can be either under-active or overactive.
An under-active immune system is unable to fight off infection and
degenerative diseases. An overactive immune system could eventually
start attacking our bodys own tissues and may lead to autoimmune
diseases like lupus, asthma and rheumatoid arthritis.
So what can we do to create an optimal immune system? First we can
provide our bodies with a good foundation of all essential nutrients.
A comprehensive multivitamin will provide key vitamins, minerals,
amino acids and essential fatty acids to support a healthy and strong
immune system. Dimethylglycine has also been shown to support a healthy
immune system as well as modulate an overactive immune response.
