In this article, we will look at the basics of your immune system and how it protects you from pathogens. You will understand how your immune system works and which key components are involved.

The immune system in action
Your immune system is a complex network of cells, tissues and organs that protects you from harmful microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria and parasites. It consists of two main components: the innate and the acquired immune system. The innate immune system provides a rapid, general defense against intruders, while the acquired immune system responds specifically to certain pathogens.

The body's guardians: white blood cells
White blood cells, also known as leukocytes, are the main players in your immune system. They constantly patrol your body looking for signs of invaders. There are different types of leukocytes, including phagocytes, which engulf pathogens, and lymphocytes, which target specific pathogens.

Antibodies and immune memory
Antibodies are proteins produced by the immune system to recognize and neutralize specific pathogens. Once produced, some of these antibodies are retained as immune memory. Immune memory allows your body to respond more quickly and effectively to known pathogens when they reappear.

Insights into the immune response
When your body recognizes a pathogen, it triggers a complex immune response. This involves the release of inflammatory substances to fight off the pathogen and the activation of various immune cells. This collaboration between cells and molecules enables your body to fight the invader.
