Ever wondered exactly what your immune system is, what it does or how to help support it? Immunologist Dr Jenna Macciochi is here to help.

We’ve picked out three standout facts for you: 

🦠 Your gut is home to around 70% of your immune system  

🦠 Your microbiome is the key educator of your immune system 

🦠 Your immune system is made up different components including things like skin, digestive tract, lining of your airways, white blood cells and organs including the bone marrow, the thymus and the lymph nodes. 

Fascinating, right?
