Abstract

The immune system protects the body from invading microorganisms and chemicals. It protects against deadly illnesses and communicable diseases in this way. Its proper operation is critical for survival. Vitamins and trace elements must be consumed in sufficient amounts for the immune system to operate properly. Immune activities are suppressed by micronutrient insufficiency, which affects the innate T-cell-mediated immune response and the adaptive antibody response, as well as the balanced host response. This increases infection susceptibility, as well as morbidity and mortality. Infections, on the other hand, exacerbate micronutrient deficits by lowering nutrient intake, increasing losses, and interfering with utilization via modifying metabolic pathways.
