How can I improve my immune system?
This is a great test to take in regular intervals to monitor your immune system as you adjust your lifestyle to make improvements. You can optimize your immune system⁴ by getting a good balanced diet, practicing good hygiene like hand washing, getting a good night's sleep, getting sufficient vitamin d with safe sun exposure or supplementation⁵, and keeping yourself well-hydrated.
What will my results tell me?
Any abnormal result found using the immune defense test will help highlight an individual issue with your immune system, including risk of diabetes, system inflammation, or low Vitamin D levels that might be affecting your overall health. Using these results, you can optimize your immunity or engage with a healthcare professional for further diagnostics and treatment plans.
Who should take this test?
This test provides useful insight into the health of your immune system to isolate areas that may require improvement — such as vitamin d deficiency and fasting glucose levels. This test is ideal for those who:
- Experience inflammation
- Have regular colds/flus/infections that last a long period of time
- Have a primary autoimmune disease such as anemia, celiac disease and diabetes
- Have high levels of stress
- Have trouble sleeping or suffer from insomnia
