Immunity enhancement refers to the process of strengthening the immune system to better protect the body against infectious agents, such as bacteria and viruses.
Postbiotics are metabolic byproducts produced by probiotic microorganisms during their growth and fermentation processes. Some studies suggest that postbiotics may have immune-modulatory properties and can enhance the immune response. For example, postbiotics have been shown to stimulate the production of cytokines, which are proteins that play a critical role in immune regulation. Additionally, some postbiotics have been found to enhance the activity of immune cells, such as natural killer cells and T cells.
Therefore, it is thought that consuming postbiotics may support the immune system by promoting the growth of beneficial microorganisms and modulating the immune response. However, more research is needed to fully understand the mechanisms underlying the immune-modulatory effects of postbiotics and their potential therapeutic applications.
