To help limit the spread of COVID-19 infection, frequent hand washing and physical distancing remains important. But until a vaccine is available, our immune systems will need to adapt to healthy living strategies.
The immune system is the body’s soldiers of defense against potentially harmful bacteria, viruses and other organisms. The system is made up of cells in your skin, blood, bone marrow, tissues, and organs that — when functioning healthy — protect your body against harmful infections.
The immune system can be supported by healthy-living strategies such as what you drink and eat, exercise, stress management and quality sleep.
