The first line of defense is the skin and mucous membranes in the mouth, nose and other areas that prevent the intrusion of harmful agents. If an intruder is introduced, it is up to the bodies immune system to eradicate it. Vaccines work to familiarize the system with low doses of viruses so it can affectively guard against it. Nutrition and physical activity is an important way to support the immune system. The other way is challenge or exercise the system so it can gain strength through development. Wheatgrass juice not only provides a unique source of nutrition, it also helps to regulate the immune system. It will strengthen deficiencies and reduce overactive systems.
