The major task of the immune system is to keep up our health by preventing diseases and infections. Scientists are accustomed to divide the immune system into 2 parts: adaptive (acquired) and innate.
1. The innate immune system is the first line of defence of a human body
- Quickly detects, targets and annihilates infectious agents. It does not require any training in identification of the infective agent.
- Presence of antigens activates the innate immune system. Antigens stimulate its cells and make them to migrate to the infected areas by blood vessels where they neutralize the agent by inhibition and destruction.
- Has no long-time memory, therefore, new receptors are being created to adapt the immune response
- The innate immune system has cells represented by macrophages, neutrophils, NK0cells (natural killers) dendrite cells, basophiles and eosinophiles.
2. The adaptive (acquired) immune system. It is slower and may not instantly respond to infections. It necessitates some time for adapting (learning) to detect the infectious agents.
- After the adaptive immune system first meets an infectious agent, it memorizes how the agent “looks like”
- When (if) the same agent tries to infect the organism again, the response of the system is fast, precise and effective.
- The main types of the adaptive immune system cells are: T-cells and B-cells.
Recently numerous scientific proofs appear that natural components, including β-glucans that make a part of IMMUNSIL® та IMMUNSIL® D3, facilitate protection of people against pathogens by modulating inflammatory, antimicrobial and anti-virus activity of neutrophils and macrophages.

IMMUNSIL® та IMMUNSIL® D3 were developed based on the latest research data and scientific achievements in the field of integrative medicine. (https://www.fox10phoenix.com/news/doctor-offers-coronavirus-protection-advice , https://drgalland.com/coronavirus-protection-protocol/)
