Q1 What is your immune system and what role does it play in
A1 Your immune system is a complex network of organs, cells
and processes that all work together to help defend your body
against invading microbes. Some of these microbes can be
responsible for colds and minor respiratory ailments.
Your immune system is divided into two main lines of defence.
The first is your skin and mucous membranes, which can
help prevent microbes from entering your body. The second
includes various kinds of white blood cells, which can identify
microbes that get past the fi rst line.
A healthy immune system will recognise any microbe that
you’ve encountered before and respond to it before it gets a
foothold in your body. If you haven’t previously encountered
that particular microbe, your immune system will identify how
to fi ght it.
This means it is important to support your immune system.

Q3 How does Zinc support your immune system?
A3 Zinc is an essential trace mineral that plays a role in more
than 100 separate enzyme reactions in your body. It also helps
to maintain the integrity of your skin and mucous membranes
(your fi rst line of defence).
Zinc also plays a more direct role in helping to maintain
immune function. Your white blood cells (your second line of
defence) need Zinc to function normally. In fact, Zinc supports
many aspects of healthy immunity; and low levels may affect
components of your immune system.
