Our immune system works day and time. She may behave differently at different times and on different days. Each of our immune cells knows what time of day it is. This is because of our body clock. Scientists have been trying to understand the human immune system for almost half a century. After a long study, they have now come to the conclusion that it works differently day and night. Body clocks have evolved in humans in artificial evolution over a million years. It controls all the functions and behaviors of our body. According to the results published in The Conversation, the body’s ability to fight disease is based on this body clock. A vaccine that builds immune memory against an infection is also affected by what time of day it is given. During the experiment, in 2016, 250 people over the age of 38 were vaccinated against influenza. The results showed that people who were vaccinated between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. had more antibodies than those who were vaccinated between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. 20 to 25 year old BCG Antibody levels also improved among vaccinators. Such people were vaccinated between 8 and 9 in the morning. Our immune cells pass through the tissues at night and move around the body and stop at the lymph nodes to create a memory of how to fight the infection during the day and how to fight it in the future. This means that because of this memory they will fight that infection better next time.
