The interaction between nutrition and the immune system is well recognized. Nutrition is critical to immune defence and to pathogen resistance during infection. In addition, inflammation, an underlying component of numerous chronic diseases, is modifiable by diet. Several nutrients and diet-derived compounds modulate various components of the immune system and have beneficial effects in infectious and inflammatory diseases, including vitamins D and E, phytochemicals and lipids. Recently, novel mechanisms of action of nutrients on immune cells have been described.
