The Immune System: Sorting Fact from Fiction
THE IMMUNE SYSTEM: SORTING FACT FROM FICTION
We all want a healthy immune system, but do we really know what that means or how to go about achieving it? Every year Americans spend millions on products designed to BOOST the immune system, many of which are worthless. This webinar will explain how the immune system works and what we can do to keep it healthy and prevent illnesses. We will also take a closer look at the claims and actual efficacy of popular immune boosting supplements.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Define antigen.


  • Define antibody.


  • Explain how vaccines work.


  • State the efficacy of at least 3 supplements that claim to support the immune system.
