The immune system is responsible for the protection of our body against the various potentially identified aggressors in the form of viruses, bacteria, allergens, toxins, and malignant cells among many others. In addition, it is responsible for down-regulating immune responses against external harmless triggers such as food, or against the bodies’ own tissue. Failure to do so may result in the development of allergy or those autoimmune disorders. Nutrition, as you will learn in this module, plays a vital role in immune system functions.

 

The module on Nutrition and Immune System will allow participants to understand how immune system works and the role of nutrition in its integrity, examine the impacts of diet, how defaults or nutritional behavior or disorder may indirectly affect immunity and the resulting physiological consequences, and devise an electronic presentation of analyzed scientific findings and present in a digital platform.

 

This module is designed for professionals in health and nutrition-related works, foodservice industry, and practitioners of other modalities such as athletes, coaches, media influencers, vloggers, and the like. This is also open for individuals who are just passionate to expand on their knowledge in achieving wellness through holistic food and nutrition principles and practices.

 

Participants must have basic knowledge in Microbiology and a baccalaureate degree in any field.
