Improving immune function

Our immune system exists to protect our bodies from invading organisms such as cold and flu viruses. But, why is it that some people naturally have a strong resistance to infection whilst others seem to succumb to cold after cold?

If you are someone who tends to pick up bugs easily, what can you do to improve your immune function?

Don’t succumb to bugs this winter. Read our new infographic – The Good Immune Guide for helpful advice to boost your immunity from A.Vogel’s nutritional therapist Alison Cullen, and Dr Margaret Richie from The University of Edinburgh.
