In the last article of “Kefir and Gamma Aminobutyric Acid Powder” we will talk about the relation between kefir and immune system. 

When the body is infected by bacteria, viruses, or other intrusions, it will activate the immune system to reduce them as early as possible. Macrophages are capable of phagocytizing and killing intracellular parasites, bacteria, tumor cells, and aging and abnormal cells. They play an important role in the body's immune defense, immune homeostasis and immune surveillance. Macrophages were first discovered by Mechnikov in 1884 and are immune cells widely distributed throughout the body's blood and tissues. 

Macrophages can be categorized to two types, fixed and free. The free type often patrol in the blood like patrolman. When they find the types of cell mentioned above, they will phagocytose these cells.

To study the effects of kefir on macrophages, the researchers injected carbon-containing substances into mice with cancer cells and measured the rate at which macrophages swallowed carbon. The results showed that the carbonaceous material in the mice using kefir was cleared more quickly. This shows that kefir enhances the activity of macrophages.

T cells, also known as T lymphocytes, are an important part of the body's immune system. Its function is mainly cellular immunity and release of lymphokines. Cellular immunity refers to the binding of T cells to kill target cells that are harmful to the human body. Lymphokines mainly promote humoral immunity. In this animal experiment, it was found that kefir also increased the activity of T cells.

In addition to enhancing immunity, kefir also provide a lot of GABA. GABA is a inhibitory neurotransmitter and responsible for the calmness and relaxation of our bodies. Gamma aminobutyric acid powder can also supplement us GABA.
