The immune system is the set of cells and their activity against antigens or infectious agents that comprises of the body's defense system against diseases. The immune system does a great job of keeping people healthy and preventing infections. Beside foods and nutritional supplements, herbs also play a important role in helping the immune system defend against viruses and bacteria attacks.

According to  the National Pingtung University of Science and Technology, Taiwan, hot water banana peel extract may be effective as bacteriostat, and immunostimulant and physiological regulator, through injection administration to enhance immunity, physiological responses, and resistance against L. garvieae in prawns study(1). The combination of saba (Banana)starch with L. plantarum CIF17AN2 showed a statistically significant in inhibition against Sal. Typhimurium SA2093 in the simulated colon model(2). The study of banana peel efficacy in biosurfactant-producing bacteria, showed the peel may be used to obtain crude biosurfactant fora broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity(3).
