You Are Under ATTACK!!! - Shaklee

You Can't Afford To Let Your Guard Down!

Every day you breathe, eat, touch and share millions of dangerous microbes that infest your surroundings. Though invisible, these substances still pose an undeniable health threat.

But you are not defenseless. The body has built-in mechanisms designed to protect us whenever possible. Your immune system is the natural shield against the stresses and environmental factors we encounter every day. A complex network, the immune system provides many layers of defense.

Immune cells can activate a substance called interferon. Interferon is a natural substance produced by the body and has two important functions.

First, it signals neighboring cells and triggers their defense mechanisms. Second, interferon activates immune cells to perform their intended functions.

Interferon helps protect us from the daily exposure to pathogens and allergens. And as complex as the immune system may be, one thing is certain. The role of interferon is essential.
