The Five Pillars of our Immune System- Blood

In my last blog I introduced the five pillars of our immune system. This one covers blood,  or more specifically how we regulate blood pressure, how the immune system uses blood pressure to help us recover from bacterial or viral infections and injuries and what micronutrients are involved to support this process. I also observe that industrial food production tilts the playing field to favor chronic inflammation and high blood pressureBlood pressure is regulated by the Renin- Angiotensin-System (RAS). Note some scientists call this RAAS with the extra "A" referring to a steroid called Aldosterone. Here is what is going...

This condition...

To help me, they broke the immune system down into 5 pillars.  I decided this was important to share with you. This will be the first blog in a series I want to write. Each week I will dive into one of the pillars.  There is quite a bit of chemistry going on so here so will do my...
