How to achieve a proper functioning of the immune system?

immune system
defends the human body against infections and repairs injuries. It uses white blood cells and antibodies to identify and eliminate microorganisms that have crossed natural barriers such as the skin or mucous membranes.

Our immune system is activated when it comes into contact with that which may endanger us, such as a tumor cell, a virus or bacteria, or rather with small parts of these (proteins or antigens).

An antigen triggers the production of antibodies by the immune system, which neutralize the antigens, preventing them from causing damage to the human body.

The autonomic nervous system is a fundamental part in the functions of the immune system. It is responsible for providing energy and information to the whole organism, coordinating its correct functioning. This is why the immune system is so affected by emotional disturbances such as stress, anxiety or depression.

There are some very frequent chronic infections in the body that we know worsen or reactivate with any nervous or emotional problem. The best known are the herpes simplex virus or the human papilloma virus, which produce cutaneous or mucosal lesions such as “cold sores”, “warts” or “genital warts”, the latter of which are potentially serious for health.

In today’s society, our immune system is being damaged mainly for two reasons: stress and poor diet or bad habits. That is why doctors recommend taking food supplements that can make up for this deficiency, either due to lack of intake or to increased needs, due to the intense wear and tear of the organism due to the lifestyle we have today.

Other tools to improve the immune system include promoting friendship and healthy social relationships, which have been shown to be especially beneficial for the immune system, as well as physical exercise, good sleep hygiene, a balanced diet and meditation.

Other clinical studies show that people who feel or are lonely suffer from poorer immune systems.

is an essential support for the correct functioning of the immune system nowadays, which we know can be altered quite easily, favoring the appearance of infections and other diseases.


The main ingredients of the new INMUDERMA nutricosmetic are the following:


It is the most abundant and versatile amino acid in the body, being the most prevalent in the blood. The main reservoir and “exporter to other tissues” in cases of need are skeletal muscle cells. The consumption of glutamine by immune system cells is similar or even higher than that of glucose in both healthy and diseased situations. In pathological situations of the human body, the tissues need more glutamine, so that its intracellular content drops to less than half, making a dietary supplement of glutamine necessary. This is why glutamine has recently come to be considered a semi-essential amino acid, i.e., the body is sometimes unable to synthesize all the amount it needs.

The main indications for glutamine supplements are:

  • Strengthening of the immune system
  • Skin and mucosal healing
  • Increases physical strength and endurance


Beta-glucans are polysaccharides present in the body that have a remarkable effect in modulating the immune system. It also has an antioxidant effect, helps in tissue healing and prevents infections.


Zinc is a mineral that is involved in the proper functioning of the immune system having a direct relationship with the white line cells. It seems to have potent antiviral properties so it is used to reduce the intensity of the common cold.

Zinc has potent antioxidant effects and is necessary for testosterone production and proper sexual function.


Vitamin C is a necessary nutrient for the body as it forms part of blood vessels, cartilage, muscles and bones. It is also a potent antioxidant and an essential component in the body’s healing process. It has shown benefits in the common cold, eye diseases, infections and cancer. Vitamin C is not produced in the body so it must be obtained from the diet.


It is a fat-soluble nutrient present in many foods. In the body it acts as an antioxidant protecting cells from damage caused by free radicals. The body needs vitamin E to stimulate the immune system in order to fight infections such as viral or bacterial infections. Vitamin E also prevents the formation of clots inside the blood vessels.


Vitamin D is a substance that is produced in the body dependent on exposure to UVB rays or through diet or food supplements. There are mainly two types of vitamin D:

-D2 OR ERGOGALCIFEROL: in foods of plant origin

-D3 OR CHOLECALCIFEROL: the one we produce in the skin after sun exposure. It is the most effective and contains INMUDERMA.

However, as is well known, excessive sun exposure has potentially serious health risks, so to obtain vitamin D3, sun exposure should be at times of medium-low UV radiation intensity and for only a few minutes a day (10-20 minutes a day).

FOLIC ACID (VITAMIN B9): is an essential vitamin necessary for the production and maintenance of new cells as well as for the production of DNA and other types of genetic material.

BETA CAROTENE (VITAMIN A): is a fat-soluble vitamin important for the immune system, normal vision, reproduction, growth and development.


In numerous studies, all INMUDERMA active ingredients have demonstrated efficacy and safety.

Nutritional supplements or food supplements contain the recommended daily dose of each active ingredient, which is far from the maximum permitted daily dose, and therefore there is no risk of excess intake, even in people who follow a varied and balanced diet.
