IMMUNE SYSTEM

OUT OF BALANCE

When the immune system is out of balance, it is unable to detect and eliminate cells infected by pathogens in time, allowing infections to spread to new cells and reducing the body’s ability to fight them. That’s why it is so important to keep the immune system function to guarantee strong defences all year round.
