FAQ's

How does our immune system work?

Our immune system is the defence system of our body which typically attacks foreign invaders such as bacteria, viruses, fungi etc. In short, it keeps us healthy and free from falling sick. Many cells and organs are involved in the functioning of our immune system. White blood cells found in our blood are the major players here. When any foreign invader enters our healthy body, these white blood cells sense them. It gets triggered to produce antibodies which kill these potentially damaging foreign bodies.

How to boost the immune system naturally?

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, people all over the world are taking steps to strengthen their immune system. To begin with, a well-balanced diet with adequate sleep and stress-free lifestyle with regular exercise is your first line of defence.

A few positive lifestyle modifications can help boost your immune system naturally. These include:

  • Eat a colourful plate- multiple coloured fruits and vegetables.
  • Stay hydrated- at least 2 litres of water per day.
  • Exercise regularly- minimum30 minutes per day.
  • Maintain sleep hygiene.
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Keep stress at bay by practising yoga, meditation and other means.
  • Minimize intake of toxins e.g. alcohol, caffeine, cigarette smoking.
  • Avoid inflammatory food which can lower your immunity. It includes additives, trans-fats, preservatives, refined sugars etc.
What are the signs of a weak immune system?

In this era of COVID-19, awareness of signs of a weak immune system is mandatory. These include:

  • Persistent Cold & cough Recurrent infections prove that your body is unable to fight against this common cold virus. It is a clear sign that your immune system is struggling with it.
  • Never-ending tummy troubles Digestive problems which include frequent diarrhoea, gas or constipation, could be a sign that your immune system is compromised.
  • Extremely slow-healing wounds Wound healing largely depends on your healthy immune cells. A slow and sluggish immune system procrastinates wound healing.
  • Frequent Infections Some of the red flags which your immune system would be sending you if you have frequent infections in a year. These may include for example, more than four ear infections in one year etc.
  • Always tired or persistent fatigue It is indeed concerning that even after a good amount of sleep and rest, your body is always exhausted. Why is your level of energy important? Because low energy levels is a sign of a compromised immune system.
  • The above signs should not be ignored and must be addressed immediately especially during this global pandemic.

How do you check your immune system?

There is no direct test for overall immunity but yes if your white blood cell counts are low it means that your immune system has weakened. A normal WBC count does not mean that your immunity is normal. If you wish to check if you have immunity against a specific infection, then specific antibody tests can help

How can I keep my immune system strong?

You can keep your immune system strong naturally through a healthy diet, exercising, practising good sleep hygiene and stress management. Apart from this, other scientifically proven ways to keep your immune system strong are as follows:

  • Wash your hands frequently Frequent washing of your hands with soap and water can remove bacteria from your hands which prevents it from reaching your eyes, nose and mouth. Thereby reducing your chance of getting infected.
  • Get Vaccinated Vaccine boosts the immune system. It reduces the risk of infection by working with the body's natural defences. It triggers the body’s immune system to produce antibodies to prevent diseases that can be dangerous, or even deadly.
  • Stop the overuse of antibiotics Use antibiotics only as prescribed to prevent the growing threat of superbugs as over a period of time they develop resistance to these antibiotics.
  • Healthy balanced diet Meet your daily vitamin and nutrient requirement by including anti-inflammatory foods in your diet to strengthen your immunity. These include whole foods like fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry, nuts, legumes and milk that contain a wide range of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

  • Vitamin E This powerful antioxidant is present in almonds, peanuts, hazelnuts and sunflower seeds, spinach and broccoli.

Do supplements help in immunity building?

Fitterfly research over the last few years has shown that more than 80% of the Indian people have deficiency of one or more key micronutrients in their diet. Hence, checking your dietary intake using an immunity calculator becomes important. Once you have planned a healthy diet for yourself which has good quantities of these micronutrients, then the role of supplements is limited in boosting your immunity. Consult your doctor before buying any of these over-the-counter supplements.
