Day in, day out, our bodies are threatened by millions of attackers! This sounds dramatic, but in the vast majority of cases it turns out well for us: Bacteria, viruses and fungi are constantly attacking our bodies, but fortunately we have a highly effective defence against these attacks in the form of our immune system. Normally, we don’t even notice how our immune system works and yet it is constantly working.
It needs the right foundations for this mammoth task, though: Like all other physiological processes, the complex processes in the immune system are only possible if we consume enough of the vital substances necessary for this.
In addition, we can support our defence against viruses and bacteria by bringing enough fruits and vegetables with a high content of polyphenols, anthocyanins, glucosinolates and flavonoids to the table. Antioxidant effects and the ability to combat unwanted invaders are currently being discussed with regard to these secondary plant products.
