There are many important humoral factors significantly contributing to the humoral response of the human body. The basic protection of the human body against pathogens attacking it from the outside consists in an intact cellular, but also humoral inflammatory system and specific immunity. Humoral immunity comes from specialized cells that are derived from the bone marrow. They are type B cells and their main function is to produce the most important antibodies that are released when the need arises. It is worth knowing how to increase immunity, especially in the winter season, when the weather and weather conditions favor the development of many viral and bacterial infections. We should not allow ourselves to reduce immunity and take care of ourselves.
