How To Boost Immune System During The Lockdown Period
Entire country is following lockdown period. So, i’m writing a post to How To Boost Immune System During The Lockdown Period.
The virus that has spread and lockdown everyone at home. As I told you in my last post that there is no medicine for virus. Our immune system fights with virus. For boosting our immune system, it is highly necessary to consume Vitamin C. First of all, understand that how our immune system works.
Whenever our body has any type of virus attack. We have two types of blood cells in our body RBC (Red Blood Cells) & WBC (White Blood Cells). WBC is our immune system
Why is necessary to Boost Immune System and How does WBC works?
Whenever any bacteria or virus attacks our body, WBC releases ROS. ROS means Reactive Oxygen Species. This is very strong element released by immune system that kills bacteria & deactivates virus. But the problem is that? Though all of ours immune system fights with bacteria & virus and wins most of the time.
Then what is the necessity of consuming Vitamin C? While killing virus ROS can also damage our healthy cells as well. If our healthy cells are damaged, we can get very sick and as a result we can die easily.
Vitamin C importance for improving immune system:-
It works as a layer on our healthy cell. When our immune system is active, though it kills virus. Our healthy cells contains a layer of protection due to that they don’t get damage very easily and our immune system kills those virus. So, it is absolutely true, as we all know that thousands of people are died due to this every year. A study say that 1 Crore 70 lakh people got died due to virus attack.
What was the problem? Is their immune system wasn’t working?
There are 2 problems
- Those who are having weaker immune system & suffering from other diseases, can die easily.
- Who haven’t got the layer of protection on his healthy cell due to that when the immune system starts fighting with virus & in result the healthy cells also got damaged.
