Eat your veggies!

Neutrophils are white blood cells and make up most of the white blood cell community, their job is to eliminate pathogens such as bacteria, parasites, certain cancers and toxins.   There are many ways the do this, one of these is a process called phagocytosis which means to engulf like a PacMan and by releasing chemicals.

Production of neutrophils is very dependent on nutrients, so low nutrition = low neutrophils = low immunity.    Nutrients such as B12, magnesium, proteins, vitamins A, D and C among others are vital for neutrophil health.  Mouse over below for a link
