  3. Lack of sleep can disrupt your immune defense.
  4. Vitamin D is one of the essential micronutrients that has a significant role in the modulation of the immune response.
  5. The gut microbiota that resides in the gastrointestinal tract regulates immune homeostasis.
  6. An overactive immune response can lead to the development of autoimmune diseases, in which antibodies attack the body’s own tissues.

Preventive measures include:
