Your Immune System

At Emergen-C®, we’re dedicated to creating great products that support your immune system. But what is the immune system and what can you do to help it thrive? Here are key things to know about your body’s very important, natural defense system.

What is the Immune System?

The immune system is made up of specialized cells, tissues and organs in the body that work together to protect against infections, attack germs, and help keep the body healthy. Your immune system helps protect your body from disease.

Why Do You Need a Healthy Immune System?

A healthy immune system protects your body from invaders, otherwise knowns as antigens, by preventing them from entering, which can lead to sickness. Should any of those antigens make their way into the body, a healthy immune system is built to destroy them before they reproduce, helping the body fight disease.
