Symptoms of a weakened immune system

A strong immune system is essential for maintaining a healthy body. It may lead to various symptoms if the immune system is weakened, and even triggers autoimmune diseases. Diarrhea and constipation, which are the diseases commonly found in urbanites, can be caused by gastrointestinal sensitivity due to the imbalance of intestinal probiotics. Allergy is another common disease found in urbanites, which is an inflammatory response induced by the overstimulated immunocyte.

The symptoms of a weakened immune system include chronic fatigue, poor sleeping quality, susceptibility to colds that are difficult to recover, headaches, etc. These symptoms are commonly regarded as the consequences of excessive stress in life or summarized as a “disease of lifestyle” or suboptimal health status. However, these are seldomly attributed to a weakened immune system, and even less so to intestinal health. To restore and maintain body health, in addition to regular diet and rest, it is necessary to manage the health of the intestinal tract and enhance immunity with the help of probiotics.

The outbreak of COVID-19 in Hong Kong earlier. Although there is vaccination, it is not 100% effective in preventing COVID-19. In addition, the effect of vaccination on various virus strains is still doubtful, and there is still no specific treatment for the infected. This situation shows the importance of strengthening our body resistance and the adage “prevention is better than cure”.

What are the reasons for the decline of immunity? What are the symptoms of a weakened immune system? How do probiotics help boost our immunity?

Reasons for weakened immune system and treatments

As driven by the medical field, health products, and information media, the public has begun to realize the intestine’s role in health. In addition to being the “second brain” of the human body, the intestine is also the primary source of our body’s immune system – the scientific community believes that 70% of human immunity comes from the intestine. Once the intestine microbiota is unbalanced and unhealthy, it will cause the decline of the body’s immunity. On the contrary, improving the intestinal environment can strengthen immunity. For instance, the baby may develop Eczema at an early age caused by insufficient absorption of probiotics from the maternal body (due to cesarean section and other reasons).

The intestinal microbiome is critical to body function: the food we eat every day interacts with probiotics to produce enzymes for digestion and manufacturing of a variety of essential substances needed by the human body, such as vitamins and amino acids. Probiotics also help maintain tight junctions between intestinal cells preventing harmful bacteria and viruses from invasion. Our body always coexists with the beneficial bacteria in the intestine, and the health of the probiotics is closely related to the overall body health.

In recent years, intestinal microbiome research has become a hot field In the medical community, bringing discoveries to explore weakened immunity. According to a study by the medical team from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the intestinal microbiome of patients with COVID-19 is seriously unbalanced. The “Microbiome Immunity Formula” help relieve the inflammation of the body and speed up the recovery process. In other words, it helps to treat COVID-19 by improving the intestinal microbiome.

在醫學界、健康產品及資訊媒體的推動之下,近年大眾開始意識到腸道於對健康的作用,它除了是人體的「第二大腦」之外,亦是我們身體免疫系統的主要來源——科學界相信人體 70% 的免疫系統都來自腸道,一旦腸道生態不平衡、健康,就會成為身體免疫力下降的原因
