Your immune system is a complex network of cells and proteins that defend your body against infection. Each of us has two parts of our immune system: the innate and the adaptive. Innate immunity is programmed in our genetic material. This part of your immune system naturally activates your white blood cells to go to the site of a cut, for example. In contrast, your adaptive immune system actually learns! It keeps a record of every germ that it has ever defeated, so it can recognize and destroy it if you encounter it again. A whopping 80% of your immune system is housed in your gut, so ensuring the health of your gut is absolutely critical in supporting both parts of your immune system.
