Our immune system and our lymphatic system are deeply interconnected.
Recent medical insights suggest that the Lymph system is the major transport mechanism of the immune system. Our lymphatic system is the river network that our immune system travels on, transporting nutrients as well as antibodies, and sometimes antibiotics to our cells wherever it's needed in order to fight off pathogens and foreign invaders. Many things can affect our immune system, so giving it a boost can be like lending a helping hand.
A large majority of our immune system resides on our skin and our mucousal lining which goes all the way from our mouth and nose to our anus, with the gut being a very important part of the immune system.
At PLANTiful, we have a range of products address immune health for the skin and the gut. Local plants we include for their immune & gut health properties are: Rosehips, Sea Buckthorn, Yarrow, Spruce, Echinacea, Dandelion, Burdock root, Mint, Chamomile, and Apple Cider Vinegar. We Also love Elderberry as an immune botanical powerhouse and will find it featured below.
Handwashing and keeping our skin clean is an important part of protecting our immunity. The best way to clean without stripping that microbiome that's providing your immunity is to cleanse with oils and with castile soaps.
