Three Lines of Defense – Your Immune System Explained

Like any concentrated effort, your body’s immune system includes several stages, all working together to fight off foreign invaders. The body’s first line of defense is the easiest to see and understand. The skin, the largest organ in the body, acts as a very real barrier (like the walls of your home), protecting the body from unwanted organisms. Openings throughout the body, like your nostrils and mouth, act as transitional areas between the skin and inside of your body. Because they are susceptible to the entry of external invaders, these areas are lined with mucous membranes that also contain the important protective antibody immunoglobulin A (IgA).†

However, despite all best efforts, foreign invaders do sometimes get through these first defenses. So the body’s second line of defense is an army of cells known as Eater Cells. These Eater Cells, including Natural Killer (NK) cells, are highly specialized white blood cells that surround, engulf and destroy rogue agents that could compromise your body’s health.†

But the protections don’t stop there. The third line of defense includes Smart Cells. These Smart Cells (including B-cells and T-cells) are some of the body’s most specialized and advanced white blood cells. B-cells make antibodies that tag foreign invaders. T-cells identify and attack those foreign invaders. Interferon is a protein signaler that supercharges the communication between B-cells, T-cells and other white blood cells. These elements work tightly together to coordinate efforts and keep your immunity strong.†
