Your longevity guide to Eosinophils. Gain deeper insights into your health.

Mito Health provides comprehensive biomarker analysis covering 67 key biomarkers. Our detailed reports offer insights into various aspects of your health, helping you make informed decisions.

What are Eosinophils?

Eosinophils are a type of white blood cell that play a key role in the body's immune response, particularly in fighting parasitic infections and mediating allergic reactions. 

Eosinophils are part of the granulocyte family of cells, which are all characterised by the presence of granules that contain enzymes and other proteins used to combat pathogens. These eosinophils specifically target and destroy parasites, while also contributing to allergy-related inflammatory responses. 

Measuring eosinophil levels can provide valuable insights into the state of your immune system and your body's response to certain health conditions.

How it’s related to your healthspan

Eosinophil levels are closely related to your healthspan as they reflect the body's capacity to respond to infections and manage inflammation. 

Normal eosinophil counts indicate a well-functioning immune system. Elevated eosinophil levels, a condition known as eosinophilia, can signal allergic diseases like asthma and hay fever, parasitic infections, autoimmune disorders, or certain types of cancer. Chronic high eosinophil levels can lead to tissue damage and persistent inflammation, contributing to the development of chronic diseases that can reduce healthspan. On the other hand, low eosinophil levels are less common and typically less concerning but may indicate underlying issues such as bone marrow disorders or the impact of certain medications. 

How to optimise your Eosinophil levels

Optimising eosinophil levels involves adopting a comprehensive approach that includes diet, lifestyle changes, and stress management. These strategies will boost your overall health and immune function, and thus, indirectly support your eosinophil levels.

Nutrition plays a key role; consuming a diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods such as fatty fish, nuts, seeds, fruits, and vegetables can help regulate eosinophil activity. Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish oil and flaxseeds, along with Vitamin D and antioxidants, can be particularly beneficial. 

Regular moderate exercise is also important as it enhances immune function and reduces chronic inflammation; however, it’s crucial to avoid excessive physical stress, which can negatively impact eosinophil levels. 

Adequate sleep is essential, as sleep deprivation can impair immune function and disrupt eosinophil balance. 

Managing stress through mindfulness practices, meditation, and relaxation techniques can help maintain balanced eosinophil levels by preventing stress-induced immune system dysregulation.
