Your immune system is a very complex entity that works hard every moment of every day to protect you from infections and illnesses.

When it is out of balance, suppressed, or overstimulated, it cannot function optimally.

Your T cells help to coordinate immune regulation and kill compromised cells. And T cell function decreases as you age and lowers immunity, especially in older adults.

This is one of the reasons why respiratory infections, influenza, and pneumonia cause more risk and are among the leading causes of death in those over 65. Other reasons include unhealthy lifestyle choices, including an inflammatory diet, lack of exercise, smoking, inadequate sleep, chronic stress, and improper hygiene can also compromise your immunity and make you more prone to disease. That is what we want to avoid right?

Supporting a balanced immune response is critical for your health and well-being. The good news is that it is never too late...I repeat, it is never too late..... to start making dietary and lifestyle changes to support proper T cell function and immune regulation (1,2,3,4).

There is an extensive article that I found particularly complete and interesting to look at. Here is the link below. If you like scientific information, we will like to read the immune response process . If you prefer simple explanations or ideas, look for the part 'Top 8 foods for immune health' in the articles.
