The immune system is the body’s natural defence system, designed to identify and destroy harmful foreign substances such as bacteria and viruses that enter the body.

The immune system does not reside in a single part of the body, but is made up of a network of cells, molecules, tissues and organs working together to protect the body. Each of these elements play a key role in how the immune system works. 

Although there is still much that scientists don’t know about the immune system, it has long been established that several factors influence the function of the immune system, including stress, sleep and nutrition.
