The performance of the immune system is quite important in fighting the diseases that threaten people every day.

If you have a weak defense system, it will be easier for you to get sick and the healing process can be more complicated. Now, with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is even more important to be very vigilant.

It is key to have a healthy life, give up smoking, avoid saturated fats and junk food. To do this, exercising several times a week can help a lot as well as the intake of vitamins and supplements that may stimulate the immune system

Remember that if the immune system is deficient, the fight against different pathogens will be more difficult. On the other hand, if the response of the immune system is hyperactive, there is a risk of developing an autoimmune disease, this means that you could be attacked internally by your own body. Examples of this are multiple sclerosis or type 1 diabetes.

Cholesterol is a waxy substance that is found in all the cells of our body and it looks like fat. Cholesterol is necessary since it helps our body to produce hormones that, consecutively, promotes a better digestion of food and also vitamin D. 

On the other hand, it should be noted that the body itself produces the necessary cholesterol and there are many foods that contain this substance.

If you have high blood cholesterol, it can stick to other substances in your blood to form plaque. This is dangerous because it sticks to the walls of your blood vessels, producing a disease called arteriosclerosis, narrowing of the coronary arteries and many more.
