When something harmful or irritating affects a part of our body, there is a biological response to try to remove it. Inflammation can be uncomfortable, but it means that the body is starting to heal itself.

It’s the start of the rainy season.
While most of us are thankful that, finally, the intense heat of the summer season is over, some of us are still in-denial as they head over to the beach for one last escape, one last kiss from the sun, one last vacation.
Inevitably, we are all bound to face the truth.
The sun is out, in comes the rain.
During this time of the year, we are all too familiar with both the major and minor inconveniences that the rainy season brings with it. In an instant, commute becomes a more challenging experience for the daily commuters, while traffic worsens in every side of the metro for the motorists.
A brief rain shower always equates to long hours of inconvenience.
This is the reality of a rainy season in the Philippines.
Another rainy season-hump we encounter along the way is the most famous trend of them all: SICKNESS. From the common colds and cough up to the most dangerous one, dengue, we are always on the look-out for signs of sickness.
Being sick during this season means a day wasted at work and bigger expenses for medication and hospitalization.
We are already expecting these things whenever the season changes. Sadly, most of us are still not ready whenever the rainy season comes.
How can one be prepared during this season of sickness?
The answer: Strengthening one’s immune system.
What is the immune system?
The immune system is made up of special organs, cells and chemicals that fight infection. The main parts of the immune system are: white blood cells, antibodies, the complement system, the lymphatic system, the spleen, the thymus, and the bone marrow. These are the parts of your immune system that actively fight infection.
Boosting your immune system
The following are tips on how to boost your immune system during this rainy season. Make sure to follow them in order to help you become sickness-free during this season of sickness.
Being in the workforce means having lots of responsibilities – from supporting our loved ones down to paying our own bills. We all feel unstoppable, on top of our game, until a rainy season-related sickness hits us. And when it happens, we get anxious and we feel helpless – we feel like things are getting out of hand. We feel restless.
To avoid these instances, it’s recommended that you take B-Complex everyday to help boost your immune system. B-Complex also has essential nutrients that are needed to keep the brain, muscles, nervous system, and your immune system healthy.
